Stupid
5 September 1999 | by RosalieBustingMyBowlsSee all my reviews

I hate this movie, it just bothers me. My little brother loves it and makes me watch it all the time and I am soo sick of it. It's probably a good movie for a little kid but is boring to mature people. I love Jim Varny, but he wastes his talent in this.
