Not as bad as you may think...
12 December 1998 | by Jarod-3See all my reviews

As much flack as this movie has gotten, I was pleasantly surprised I was laughing out loud at some of the dumb humor. Although I would classify Bill & Ted's as more intelligent than this movie, it's still a fun picture. Let me put it this way, if you don't find it funny that two guys try to rid Yellowstone Park of prairie dogs by concocting something that makes the animals poop uncontrollably when in the area (and accidentally releasing this concoction on a bus load of unsuspecting tourists), then you probably won't like this movie. If you think this stunt is so "out there" that it's hilarious, then you'll like it. Just a good old Disney farce for today's audience. Give it a chance and rent it when you're in a nutty mood.
