      EllaJo r How did this funny movie get this low of a rating this is an old school classic Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/24 Full Review Noah C The best film of Pauly Shore (since Encino Man). Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/18/24 Full Review Cassandra S I don't understand why this movie got such bad reviews..lol. I've always liked this movie. I've seen worse. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/26/23 Full Review Alli S I absolutely LOVED this movie it had an actual plot and came with a happy ending. It met it's PG-13 rating perfectly as there were some sexual reference easter eggs here and there but nothing too explicit to turn to an R rating. Like I said before this was a great movie and I definitely recommend it as it is my favorite Pauly Shore movie.
