User Reviews

Probably the worst "comedy" of the year.
8 February 1999 | by Dave-406See all my reviews

This so-called comedy loses all track of direction, makes "comedic" use of extreme violence and bloodshed, is pointless and inane, uses profanity instead of wit, and dulls the intelligence level of its watchers. I evidently had a masochistic urge when I turned it on and stuck to it. It is blissfully short and makes ill-use of Sheen, Sorvino and Locklear. (Their agents should have known better.)
