Review Date: July 24, 1999
Director: Michael Patrick Jann
Writer: Lona Williams
Producers: Judy Hofflund, Gavin Polone
Besides its lack of consistent humor, I also found that the film ran a little too long, had one really exaggerated and unfunny retarded character who was just embarrassing, and many, many missed opportunities, including a flat ending. I did enjoy two smaller characters in the film, one being the father of Denise Richards character and judge#2 with his penchant for "young girls", but overall, most felt tired. Two characters which were way underused were Ellen Barkin, who could've been so much more, and Denise Richards, who appeared to be the star of the film from the look of its trailer, but actually only played a small part within a diverse cast of characters.
Overall, the film didn't do it for me, offering very little in real humor and relying more on the easy, let's make fun of the trailer-trash-folk-type of comedy. And if you're expecting T&A from Richards, forget about it. Any which way you look at it, missed opportunities all around.
