"Hey Joe, Is This Movie Good?" "I Don't Think So Gus."
25 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

This has got to be the worst comedy I have seen in a few years. Pesci and Glover must have been really desperate to take these roles. Their characters are mentally retarded people from New Jersey who win a fishing trip to the Florida everglades. Could've been a funny movie but everything from start to finish is predictable and NOT FUNNY! It gets even worse after you keep hearing the guys call each other by their first names in every other sentence. Here's an example of the dialogue throughout the entire movie:("Hey Gus, what should we do?" "I don't know Joe." "Gus, this is weird. They stole my car." "We can go find it Joe." "Will you help me find it Gus?" "Sure I'll help you find it Joe." "Thanks Gus." "No Problem Joe, Always glad to help Joe." "Thanks Gus. You know what Gus? You're a real pal!" "So are you Joe! A real pal.") Gus Gus Joe Joe Joe Gus Gus Joe Gus Joe Joe Gus.....on and on and on and on and on. Did the writer not pick up on this when he was writing the script? Maybe he did but he forgot to think about one thing....IT'S NOT FUNNY!!! * out of ****. Waste of talent. Pesci should get back in his mobster roles since he hasn't done a decent movie in 4 years. And Glover better start working on a Lethal Weapon 5. Get to work Boys!
