How I saw it: on video (rented on DVD), yesterday
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay).
Objective Rating: 2/10 (gets points for dialog and subjective rating) c. 1.4/4 (Bad).
Dumb, with occasional bursts of hilarity. Mostly it’s just boring filler. The concept’s a cute idea, but why would they do it with a movie with so little dialog?
