Terminally silly remake of the Prince and The pauper
21 August 2002 | by Havan_IronOakSee all my reviews

Good hearted remake of the prince and the pauper tale transplanted to modern day California. Not a bad flick if you're 11 years old. don't expect to enjoy it if you're any older unless you're seriously chillin' dude.
