Great movie, as long as you leave out the last 10 minutes.
12 November 1999 | by alfinatorSee all my reviews

Extremely funny movie. As mentioned in the summary, just don't let the lame ending ruin the rest of the movie for you. Several comedians are in this movie, most notably Robert Townsend and Paul Reiser. Also, a very funny performance by Jake of "Body by Jake". Hope you love the movie as much as myself and my friends.
