In the Navy!
17 January 2002 | by jimjam20-2See all my reviews

What a load of crap! This movie was sad on to many levels to list, and I actually have a friend who bought the damn thing! I give him crap everytime I see him, don't worry. Tom Arnold works in supporting comedy roles (True Lies) but as the star, he is woefully lacking. Just Terrible.
