User Review

Fun Little Film

Rating: 7/10

This movie is not great cinema, but as long as you don't go into it
looking
for earth-shattering insight and emotional depth, its actually an amusing
little time waster. The movie's goofy but original premise conceals its
relatively cliched plots, and all concerned appear to be having fun.
Bottomline, if you avoid taking either the movie or yourself too
seriously,
LP #9 is good for a few laughs.
