saw this being filmed...
31 May 2007 | by jrepoman73See all my reviews

I saw this being filmed when I was fourteen. I was down for summer vacation from Washington State. My brother took me to Hollywood to get drunk. I think we were on either Sunset or Hollywood Blvd when I saw a movie set. My brother was pretty wasted and didn't realize the two hookers he was chatting up were Cindy Williams and Markie Post! I was a huge fan of Night Court at the time and I was STOKED!! I never realized this movie was released because I assumed it was a feature film. I will try to get it from NetFlix now that I know it was actually finished, plus it's got John Ritter! I was surprised as hell to even find it on here! I was watching an episode of Scrubs featuring Markie Post, that's what jarred my memory and instigated this comment on a movie I'VE NEVER SEEN!!
