Below-Average Episode of TV series
30 June 2001 | by missy_baxterSee all my reviews

They made two theatrical movies with the cast of the original series with one notable exception -- this one didn't have McHale and thus surrounds Binghamton and Parker -- with the usual shtick. There are three funny scenes and the rest of it rambles on interminably. If you like the series, you will find this bearable but are better off renting a tape with episodes from the actual series. Still, this is better than the hideous 1997 remake.
