    The movie is a mess of bits and pieces that try to gel but don't. Still, it is stupidly fun. show more

    The only possible reasons to do this concept again is sheer laziness (it's easier to borrow an idea) and pure greed (it's cheaper to borrow an idea). [2 April 1999, Life, p.6E] show more

    Strictly a middle-aged comedy, which consists of more easy lobs than sharp smacks, but manages to get the job done. show more
