Quotes

Havilland Savage: [after Lee finds out she gave the job to her sister instead of him] First off, I'm offering my sister a job, i'm doing her a favor. She will make more money workin' for me than she will work for anybody in D.C... Secondly, This is between me and my sister. So while you're in my face, in my mother's house - you better take your threadbearin', fake book writing, motherfucking piss-colored ass out of my goddamn house!

Thoroughly pleasant movie....
9 June 1999 | by SupamanSee all my reviews

Hav Plenty is one of the most under-rated, under-exposed movies I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. It was entertaining from beginning to end. The laughs were 'Plenty'-ful. (Lots of critics use puns, why should I be different.) If you just want to have a good time watching a movie, invite over a few friends and pop 'Hav Plenty' in the VCR. P.S. They should have hired me to promote this movie maybe more than 12 people would have seen it.
