Goofs

At the end of the movie, when everybody is at the Zebra club, Sam's sister fires three rounds at Wu. Wu apparently catches all three bullets, then the camera zooms in on his hand. However, the bullets shown in his hand still have the casings on them, thus they couldn't have been fired from a gun. See more »

Worth the viewing time
16 January 2004 | by sxctSee all my reviews

This is the campiest movie you will ever see. It is so bad that it is hysterical. Teri Hatcher tries to play it straight and Andrew Dice Clay is just Andrew Dice Clay. See it. The laughs will make you glad you did.
