Not as bad as people think!
17 October 1999 | by Jonno-BSee all my reviews

I really feel that it is about time someone defended this movie! Okay, so the script and the plot isn't up to much, and maybe some of the acting is a little bit on the thin side, but it's one of those movies that you can sit and watch without having to analyze every tiny detail. I don't think Shelley Long is bad in the lead role, and her constant clumsiness did manage to raise the odd laugh, and I think her eccentric sister is brilliant. Therefore, I think that although this is not going to go down in history alongside Citizen Kane, it deserves some recognition as a movie which is ideal for a lazy Sunday.
