I Know I Wasn't Hallucinating...
11 November 2003 | by poodyglitzSee all my reviews

..I just got the title wrong. Since it was based on Laurel & Hardy, I thought it was called "Another Fine Mess". For years, I've been trying to track this film down. Now I'm not alone in my memory of this movie. I was a teenager when it came out.

NIXON: "Tit for a tat."

AGNEW: "...And a sh*t to that."

Thanks, IMDB!
