      Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: D+ Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Entertainment Weekly Rated: D+ Jan 7, 1994 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault Most critics hated it, but it’s got “cult classic” written all over it. Rated: B Aug 31, 2022 Full Review Sean Mulvihill FanboyNation.com It's an aggressively bizarre movie, a mash-up of conflicting sensibilities that would only work for a niche audience. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 29, 2018 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Common Sense Media Weird comedy-fantasy cult classic with language, innuendo. Rated: 3/5 Mar 29, 2011 Full Review Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.com Rated: 0/5 Oct 27, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Alec B Here's a comedy that at the very least tried something different so while I totally get why a lot of people don't like it, the vitriol and anger directed at the movie was completely unjustified. What works for me are the deliberately cheap yet highly stylized designs and the weird performances where everyone seems totally committed to this bonkers premise. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review James W I thought it was funny. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/05/23 Full Review Carlos I Oof! I don't remember this being this bad... Like, I mean I get that it's going for bizarre and intentionally bad and subversive, but it's just soo damn corny. There are a few funny gags in it though. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 07/24/23 Full Review Lance U A wonderfully bizarre, early 99's gem! Deserves much more love! Chris Elliot is a comedy genius! B- Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/29/23 Full Review Steve D A complete and total mess even worse than its reputation, Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Here's a comedy that at the very least tried something different so while I totally get why a lot of people don't like it, the vitriol and anger directed at the movie was completely unjustified.
