Very Good Film, Definitely Worth A Look!
24 February 2007 | by Horror_Fan01See all my reviews

I Saw this at The sundance festival, being a Tara Reid fan, for some reason, i was really not interested in seeing this, but i ended up seeing it, and i loved it, it was very funny and dramatic!!! It is definitely worth a look, it is also very underrated, i hear it supposed to have a theatrical release after it finishes at sundance, so if you didn't catch it at sundance, go see it at theaters, you will love it! I really hope this movie gets a lot of buzz, because it certainly deserves it, a great family film! Whoopi Goldburge is obviously funny and awesome in this movie as well as Tara Reid and Sharon Stone!!! This movie needs to get more popular so more people know about this film, because it deserves a watch from everyone, this is one of those movies, where you need to see it at least once in your life.
