I laughed until it hurt!!!
29 March 2001 | by rhettmannSee all my reviews

I disagree with Mr. Tiozzo. I am 20 year old male and I loved it. This is the first Greggio film I've seen, but it surely isn't the last. He reminds me a lot of Peter Sellers with his great facial gestures, physical jokes, and one liners. Brooks was his zany self, and even broke into song a couple of times in the picture. Miss Julie Condra is, of course, as beautiful and sparkling as always. We even get a couple of cameo appearances(attached to one liners, of course) All around I thought this is a great film. It was what I expected, and more. If you are looking for a heavy plot, go to the Drama section. If you are looking for a side splitting comedy, look no further.
