Simplistic Friday Night Fare
11 March 2001 | by sboxSee all my reviews

This is a movie worth missing. However, if you are in the mood for an eighties style love-comedy-drama, it just might fill the bill. Frankly, this is a too be missed movie unless you want to see a cute french girl in full eighties attire, a thin looking Sinbad, or Bill Maher cracking lame jokes.

The funny thing about Maher is that he looks exactly like he does now (even back in 1986). I'm sure he wasn't happy about the over expired ham jokes he related in this film. But, his appearance was like seeing a brand new corvette in a run down used car shop. In essence, totally out of place.

I would love to know what the french beauty looks likes now. I'm betting fat and sassy. Overall, this movie ranks a generous 3 out of 10.
