Nothing special except the women
8 January 2003 | by bsincSee all my reviews

Although funny at moments "Susan's plan" fails to provide a meaningful plot, it basically revolves around money, the amount of which is not even revealed. The acting is nothing special and there is the absence of humor from Rob Schneider. The positive side of this movie is you get to see practically every female actress in it naked. The stunningly beautiful Lara Flynn Boyle is one of the main reasons why I give this movie 6/10
