I have to believe that this movie was made with good intentions. However, Tara Reid drags the pace of the film down. The poor cast seemed to have to cater to her lack of acting ability which didn't help. Her cleavage looked good, so I can say that about her. I don't believe she did any character preparation at all. She had three facial emotions: confused (scrunched brow), happy (smiling) and blank face (no smiling, no scrunched brow, though it can't be long before she's confused again in which case you should refer to face #1). Unfortunately, she is not the only one to blame. I can't help but think that everyone (directing, editing, actors, sound effects and music) could have thought out their role more thoroughly to make a decent film. George Wendt's performance was the best part of the film and might have made the movie worth watching if he had been in more scenes. I rated the film 3 stars instead of 2 because you have to give props to "Norm".
