stumbled upon a good movie.
24 November 2002 | by Venus8See all my reviews

This movie may not contain a great, powerful story, but it is comprised of great actors, facetious characters. If you are looking for drama, go elsewhere, because there isn't any here. All the movie contains is laughter, smiles and all the elements necessary for a good light hearted movie.

I didn't know what to expect when I got the movie, but was hoping for it to be worth while. As it turns out, I've stumbled upon a good movie, for it was worth my while and I'd definitely watch it again. Perhaps again and again!!
