Call me crazy, but I kind of like it.
25 July 1999 | by wetthamSee all my reviews

This is actually a sort of cute film. I do not really know why, but it is. The acting isn't the greatest and the jokes are all recycled, but it is fun. I wouldn't waste money on a movie ticket for it, but it's a fun, light thing to watch if it is on television.
