REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..should be called The Worst and the Dumbest..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..offering a fitfully funny sitcom plot clumsily stretched to 90 minutes, then goosed with increasingly tiresome doses of smuttiness and political incorrectness..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]
“..flies off its comic rails after an engaging start, never to land back on solid ground..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..amusing at times but never more than a modest diversion, lacking the cleverness and imagination required to turn it into more than a one-joke movie..”
by Connie Ogle [Miami Herald]
Reviewed by Jeannette Catsoulis [NY Times]
