Alot better than expected....!
14 September 1999 | by Stealth-5See all my reviews

I just picked up this movie for no apparent reason...seeming 90% of movies i rent is horror...i went for a little "Change" and decided to hire Sprung! I didnt expect much from this film,but i got more than i bargained for....although not all jokes went out to the open,alot did and cracked me up...This film is good because it takes alot of time to "explore" all the characters,so you get to know them more...if you do not explore the character,you dont care about him/her,the sex scene was so hilarious!! Catch this one for some laughs!!!Dont expect too many laughs,but expect a story of sex and friendship! 6.7 out of 10
