Destroy this movie before you ever watch it.
17 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

I watched "The Pest" at a friend's sleepover and let me tell you,it was excruciatingly painful to get through the first half-an-hour.Thankfully I was tired and fell asleep through most of it. I found this movie to be disgusting,crude,obnoxious,idiotic and I wanted to gauge my eyes out. It surprised me that John Leguizamo...A man capable of better roles and a good actor...would degrade himself so much by playing the part of The Pest.

Pest is right...This movie is a pest and it should definitely be terminated.....0.00001/10
