Good movie in my opinion!
31 May 2006 | by guttapimpSee all my reviews

I saw this movie. I brought it, and didn't rent it. To me personally this movie is to funny. Well their were a couple of scenes that disappointed me but I still love to watch it. I didn't find anything wrong with this movie. I mean the comedy was good, The characters were great. In my opinion if you wanna see a good movie just take a look at this movie. For some people who didn't see it and you want to see it go buy it and check it out. Then again this is worth me repeating because It's a movie that was underrated when it came out. When I heard about it I brought it.People you have to really look in stores and check this movie out when you get a chance!
