Nancy Kendricks: Oh, tickity-boo.
Herman: I don't know what that means.
Nancy Kendricks: It means I'll have it soon.
Herman: Well, if you mean I'll have it soon, then why don't you say I'll have it soon? I mean, tickity-boo is just confusing for everybody!

User Reviews

Not what I expected.
16 October 2004 | by daria84See all my reviews

I watched the preview for this movie in I think was "Lost in Translation" DVD, and I laughed so much just by watching the preview, I thought it would be awesome! After all, it had Ben Stiller, Drew Barrimore and directed by one of my favorite actors ever, Danny deVito. Boy am I disappointed or what?

The idea is good, but it's just not funny, there are some funny parts, but most of the movie just makes you angry! I guess that was the point, but it was also to make you laugh, I didn't.. maybe once or twice, that's about it.

I don't regret watching this movie b/c I really wanted to, but no way I would watch it again. *** out of *****
