A seriously unfunny comedy full of actors who've been really funny ... elsewhere.

Audience Reviews for Out on a Limb


Francis Veber's another criative screenplay. But not so good and totally unfunny.

This will no doubt be a guilty pleasure of mine. The cast makes this movie worth it for me. It's silly all in all but I truly don't mind the silliness. I'd watch this anytime it comes on TV. Also had a nostalgia trip because I used to see this VHS box cover all the time at the video store but never saw the movie until now.


L.O.V.E IT!!! It's hilarious, when i has to be...good for people who have nothing better to do, but watch this...
