Quotes

Al Connors: I've got the money, the coke and a picture of your daughter. There's one more thing I need.
Harry De Bauld: What is that, Al?
Al Connors: That's all the information you can give me on this Big Daddy fella. Who is he?
Harry De Bauld: When you say 'who is he?' you're talking about what he looks like and where he hangs out. Nobody knows, Al. That's one thing we can't tell you much about. Very few people ever see Big Daddy. The only thing I can tell you though, he's about six feet two inches tall, has blond, curly hair and, man, you talking ...

The WORST Movie Ever - Bar None
9 November 2002 | by exxonboy32See all my reviews

If you want to hear and see a joke that lasts 1 hour 28 minutes just watch this movie. Elementary school productions have been created and looked better than this horrendous movie, if it can be called that. The editing is heinous, the plot fades from an obscure ode to the expired disco age to a replica of the plot from "Shaft," and the acting is what I would expect from a mentally retarded 8-year-old trying to impersonate a panda. Do yourself a favor and rent a film of an autopsy. Followed by a sequel, "Super Soul Brother" (Ooh, sounds intelligent AND funny).
