I have this movie because my mom actually bought this based on the fact that it stars Adam Sandler. This film deserves its place in the IMDb.com Bottom Rated List as I dislike it very much & it's incredibly unpleasant for me to endure it. The big difference is that this is Sandler's debut film, prior to joining "Saturday Night Live," & this ain't like the more mean-spirited films Adam's known for today (The irony is that he could perhaps have become the boorish comedian antagonist in this motion picture.) I don't even dare watch it while doing other activities like playing a Wii U. The reason why this DVD isn't a coaster is because as a "Mystery Science Theater 3000" fan, I have my patience. Besides I also hope to sadistically play this for others like my future kids as punishment.

Only really worth watching if you absolutely love Adam Sandler, not his humor, but Sandler himself, because that can't be found anywhere in this movie, at least not much of it. He's just starting out. This is basically a B-rated movie without the so bad it's good element
