      Andy Seiler USA Today Slipshod storytelling, junior high-level acting and direction that resembles Aunt Gertrude's home movies. Rated: 1/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle It's not exactly what I'd call brilliant filmmaking, but it is heads above anything any of the Wayans brood have done in a long time. Rated: 2/5 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Tom Keogh Film.com A waste of time. Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 27, 2005 Full Review Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.com Just rambles around loudly, making little sense, before winding to a close. Rated: 1/5 Apr 3, 2005 Full Review Philip Martin Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Rated: 2/5 Jul 30, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews
