"If I can help one person avoid this film, I'm happy."
1 stars

It's not funny. No you don't understand. It's not funny. No. Seriously. It's just not funny. Like, at ALL!

I wish I could say something good about this film. I always considered Christina Applegate fine spank material, and always thoguht of Jay Mohr as potential comedy genius...

But this film is really unfunny. In every way possible.

The only funny line in the film, is in the commercial. If you've seen the commercial, it's all downhill from here folks.

To be fair, there is humor in this film, but it comes from the Production Designer, not the actors or script. Every set has something funny in it. Every line of dialogue has nothing at all of merit.

I seriously tried to make this the first film I've ever walked out of, but my vomit had dried and my feet were stuck to the floor. I guess I could have ditched my shoes and barefooted it out of there, but they cost me eighty bucks.

I endured, not like many who left, and I can say I'm stronger for the experience.
Well at least my stomach is.

What a pity Lloyd Bridges had to end his career (and fine life) with a complete fucking stink-bomb like this. Perhaps it's what killed him. It nearly did me in.
