A classic Elijah Wood.
16 June 2004 | by ClassicGalSee all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was little, so maybe that's why I like it so much. Plus I love Elijah Wood in his younger days, like in Huck Finn and Forever Young. I think he's hilarious in this movie, and the movie is hilarious. I just saw it last night for the first time in years, and laughed so hard. I'm a big fan of Bruce Willis, and remembering he was in this movie was a big plus. Maybe it's one of those movies where you either love it or you hate it. It's fun and light-hearted and entertaining. I personally recommend it if you're ever bored and in need of something care-free and entertaining! I don't think you'll be disappointed, if you don't take it too seriously.
