Much better than expected.
24 April 2008 | by samdav-1See all my reviews

I've just finished watching this movie, and I was thoroughly entertained. Obviously this isn't worthy of critical acclaim, but should be given a consideration if you are looking for a light comedy.

You should know by now that the movie has a lot of stereotypical humor, which should be a given if you read the plot outline. But it doesn't detract from a pretty funny storyline, good cast and an enjoyable 90 minutes.

The movie has plenty of laugh out loud moments that fit well within the context of the outline. The story moves well, and gets you to care for the characters.

Definitely worth a rent.
