Hey man, you can't be just popping up like that without warning! For a moment I thought you were Chucky.Bout to… put you in a choke hold!
From the Hollywood cookie cutter…
Comes this heartwarming tale of hope. Hope that you'll never have to
endure anything this awful again. *cough* Razzie award *cough*
I disliked this movie because it was unfunny, predictable and inane.
While watching I felt like I was in a psychology experiment to
determine how low movie standards could get before people complained.
When I requested my money back at the end of the movie I was informed
that because I watched the whole thing 'I wasn't entitled to
reimbursement'. I was told by the assistant manager that several people
had complained and gotten refunds already though.
The movie summary is pretty basic. The midget thief steals a diamond
and the poses as a baby to elude police. Underneath this clever outline
however, lies a repertoire of original, fresh and hilarious skits. Or
Ask yourself the following: Do you like to see people getting hit by
pans? Do you like fart jokes? Do you like to see midgets posing as
babies threatened with a thermometer in the anus? Do you like tired
racial jokes? Do you think babies say 'goo goo goo goo goo gaa gaa'? Do
If you answered 'yes' to any of the above then this movie is definitely
for you. Although it has been billed in some places as 'The Worst Movie
of the Decade', there is probably a movie or 2 that are
worse…somewhere. I can't say for sure. I gave this movie 2 stars
because we all know a review with only one star would indicate bias on
the part of the reviewer and then the review wouldn't be taken
This lowbrow comedy is intended for a less intelligent audience and I
cannot in good conscience recommend it to anyone. Save your money for
