Storyline

Ted was a geek in high school, who was going to go to the prom with one of the most popular girls in school, Mary. The prom date never happened, because Ted had a very unusual accident. Thirteen years later he realizes he is still in love with Mary, so he hires a private investigator to track her down. That investigator discovers he too may be in love with Mary, so he gives Ted some false information to keep him away from her. But soon Ted finds himself back into Mary's life, as we watch one funny scene after another. Written by Justin Sharp <rainman88@earthlink.net>

Did You Know?

Trivia

Although the identity of Brett Favre as Mary's previous boyfriend "Brett" is kept secret throughout the film, a clue to his identity is provided by Mary's friend who refers to him as "Pacman". At the time, Favre played for the Green Bay Packers. See more »

Goofs

The film features two troubadours several times throughout the film. Though we can hear the vocals and accompanying guitar and drum lines, this music almost never matches what the drummer and guitarist are actually doing with their instruments on screen. This was intentional on the part of the filmmakers and meant to be humorous. See more »

User Reviews

 
Grade school level of bathroom humor.
28 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

This was easily the worst movie I have ever seen. I actually watched the whole thing just to see if it could possibly have some redeeming quality, but it doesn't. It is full of endless, stupid, childish, crude, locker-room humor. It takes me back to when I was a boy of ten years, when toilet humor was a big deal. I still can't believe that any adult would find this funny, and it scares the hell out of me to think of the ratings it received when it was released. What does this say about the state of our "enlightened" society.
