Ratings & Reviews

view all
  • All the principals in this cinematic mess have had moments of glory on stage and screen, and one can only hope they got paid well for participating in this comedic embarrassment.

  • This is a cheap-looking lowbrow comedy that likely would have gone straight to home video.

  • A pleasant and surprisingly polished fish-out-of-water comedy.
