What a waste of time...
10 February 2002 | by DarkanglSee all my reviews

I collect movies like this and if done properly this could have actually been a very funny movie. What it turned out to be was a very bland gross-out movie that really has no redeeming comic or interest value whatsoever. There are tons of great comedy horror films out there. I would suggest looking elsewhere if you want some good old fashioned gross-out entertainment, as this movie will leave you wondering why you actually paid good money to buy it. It's a one time watcher at best.
