Hilarious!
28 August 2002 | by Joyce PSee all my reviews

I don't really get it why most of the comments are so negative. I personally think the movie was very, very funny. Ok, perhaps some of the jokes were kind of predictable, but hey, once you've seen a few good jokes, all the lesser ones are funny too.

My friend and I picked this movie ten minutes before it started and without knowing what to expect. But we're certainly glad we chose this one.

I don't know wether there was poor acting in this film or that it should have been directed more professionally... I was just too busy laughing!!
