Audience Reviews for The Wrong Guy

I am a huge "Kids In The Hall" fan as well as a HUGE "Newsradio" fan. This lends itself to being a big Dave Foley fan. This movie was just not great. It had some laughs...it had some good laughs, but truly it was more of a "Kids In The Hall" sketch stretched out for a full hour and a half. I love the sketches as much as anyone, but there is a reason they are short and sweet...they work that way. This should have been the same. Dave Foley is wonderful (and there are a few "Kids" cameos as well as some belly laughs) and Jennifer Tilly is a sexy beast, but... If you want a few good laughs when the queue is empty, check this out, but no need to go out of your way.
