answer "seeing this movie"
8 November 2001 | by scamperooSee all my reviews

l have to tell you that l used the main review on imdb to gauge whether this was worth going to see. Were we watching a different film as l could find nothing even remotely amusing about this title. Not only did we not even smile but neither did anyone else in the house this was everything a comedy should not be, what is it with Lawrence's facial movements annoying or what! imagine the worst Hope/Crosby title and times it by three then you might somewhere near how bad this film is, on a positive note l also used imdb's review of "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" as a guide, now there's a funny movie but that's another story....... Sorry Popa Joe Algarve/Portugal
