Weak tripe that would probably never see the light of day again if not for Hugh Grant's participation very early in his career.

Hee hee hee heeeee....oh it makes me chuckle. I didn't even get half way through it. Hugh's mullet, the damsel in distress - LOL!! It's so cheesy Velveeta would have some major competition. Oh my......still laughing.

Awesomely bad, and good for a laugh. (I mean, just look at any of the many VHS/DVD covers. They're laughably unattractive, which is about right for this movie.)
