This film is utterly without discipline or focus in a way that -- to one's shame --one eventually finds oddly endearing.

It seems to be targeted at eight-year-old boys with attention-deficit disorder, and could have been more competently made by any one of them.

Even surrounded by unbearable sloppiness, Leguizamo is fascinating to watch.

Pic exists solely to showcase Leguizamo's wild and crazy antics, which are very much an acquired taste.

When Mr. Leguizamo isn't doing third-rate ethnic parody, he is wallowing in scatological jokes that are so poorly prepared and executed that they make similar antics by Mr. Carrey play like classic routines.

If you have any doubt that John Leguizamo is not funny, this movie will handily reinforce that notion.

The script and Leguizamo's talents don't mesh, so the actor comes off as more offensive than funny.

There is not a socioeconomic, political, ethnic or gender group that is left unoffended.
February 14, 2001
Talented and versatile actor-comedian John Leguizamo indulges himself so totally with incessant mugging, mimicking and all-around showing off that he begins to wear out his welcome before the opening credit sequence is over.

It's the kind of movie where every paying customer deserves to receive a handwritten apology from the producers.

Essentially a collection of ethnic and bodily function jokes punctuated by chases.

This movie defies review. To critique it would be like writing about a restaurant that only serves birdseed. Of course, humans don't like birdseed -- it's not meant for our species.

By their nature, pests are meant to get under your skin and this one certainly does.

A revoltingly bad stinker that is easily in the running for the worst film of the decade.
