What a classic
9 September 1999 | by HartfordHammerSee all my reviews

This movie is hilarious. A movie about tough guys who aren't tough at all. Every character has a touch of effeminacy that makes the movie such a hysterical parody. My favorite movie of all time. Reminds me of Wes Anderson's "Bottle Rocket".
