      Paul Tatara CNN.com Grown men with their own offices found this material amusing enough to film. Feb 3, 2018 Full Review Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle It is a comic nadir, the stanky green crust caking the bottom of the well of titters. Rated: 0/5 Apr 5, 2001 Full Review Peter Travers Rolling Stone Laced with such rampant misogyny that the laughs stick in your throat. Rated: 0.5/5 Apr 5, 2001 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...periodically amusing yet mostly tedious... Rated: 1.5/4 Dec 29, 2022 Full Review Charles Cassady Common Sense Media A parade of labored sex gags and bathroom humor. Rated: 1/5 Dec 15, 2010 Full Review Nick Rogers Midwest Film Journal Desperate is too kind a word. This isn't so much a movie as director Gregory Poirier's failed application to the Farrelly Brothers Country Club. Even those looking for T&A will be disappointed, unless Jerry O'Connell's hairy tuchus floats their boat. Rated: 0/4 Dec 2, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

      Derek T This is the quiescential coming of age movie with slapstick humor and surprisingly original content for a genre that has been repeated with copycat producers following the latest trend since the late 70's. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/15/23 Full Review ahmad m A humorous tale that just crosses past the line of relatable. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member If you like sophomoric hijinks and stupidity than you will love this. If you are repulsed at the thought do not watch this. That is it. I watched this 20 years ago on cable and I watched it again with my 2 University aged kids back from school and we cracked up on the floor. The scene with the little redhead is hysterical a great twist. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Decent watch at best, probably won't watch again, and can't recommend. If you are just running out dirt humor comedies, then this might do the trick, but it's definitely lower quality than, say, "American Pie". With some low-tier male actors, and underrating their female stars, this doesn't have the writing or star power to really wow me. Shannon Elizabeth owns every scene she is in, by far the best actor in this, and probably the funniest too. Jamie Lee Pressly is basically reduced to a male fantasy gag. I actually like Jake Busey ("The Frighteners", I'm unsure exactly why), but his character is specifically unlikeable in this, and barely funny with a one-note joke of being a misogynistic asshole. While the has some funny moments, there isn't a lot to this movie other than a lesson against gambling and treating women like consumables. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review steve d Terribly unfunny "comedy" Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Is Jerry O'Connell really that bad? I have to wonder if they'd had someone else in that role, if it could have made it a bit better? Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
