Its still a flawless work!
3 November 1999 | by QKnownSee all my reviews

This is one of the few comedies that I absolutley love! Everytime it comes on TV, i still got enough nerve to always watch it. Its that good! Sadly, we're not able to see what Vazquez (the director) would have went on to do. But he left us with a well made comic motion picture that will stand the test of time! ****
