Although not the best movie it is still entertaining.
9 December 2001 | by joncxSee all my reviews

There were parts of the movie that were not that good, but what I found the most entertaining was Josh Zuckerman's acting. I am not sure if it is just me, but I thought he was GREAT in this movie. I have never seen him in any other movie before this, but he was excellent. His acting alone made it watcable (along with Bryan Cranston's, who was rather funny during some parts). I can't wait to see Josh as the Young Dr. Evil in the new Austin Powers movie, he is sure to be great. But until then I will just have to watch this. There were parts in this movie that made me cringe (such as the many computer references), but for the most part it is a pretty solid movie compared to other TV movies.
