Richard Clark has just left the well-known Wellington Academy to teach at Marion Barry High School. Now, he will try to inspire the D-average students into making good grades and try to woo a fellow teacher.
A comedy about finding your true love at any price. Dylan Ramsey resorts to snatching his beautiful neighbor's dog so he can spend time with her while they go on a phantom dog hunt. Succeeding in his plan, Dylan goes to return the pooch, only to discover that it has hidden Dylan's best friend's diamond ring.Written by
A rather pleasant surprise, this comedy is hardly original but has some inspired moments of hilarity if you're willing to suspend a certain measure of disbelief. The writers are a little too blatant in their attempts at a "There's Something About Mary" (which came out the previous year) style romp and it takes a while to get used to seeing Spade as the romantic leading man, but once you're over that hump, the movie is a lot of fun. The film is not a classic and those who don't have a taste for raunchy humor should definitely stay away, but there are many worse comedies out there these days. Actually, one of Spade's better solo efforts.
