If you have a high-tolerance for guilty-pleasure humor and John Leguizamo's wacky character of 'The Pest', then you might enjoy this comedy.

Leguizamo is almost funny but comes closer to being annoying. Jeffery Jones is mildly entertaining at least. Mostly a stupid movie

Ok, so the truth is it's a little bit stupid. (ok, maybe a lot) but it's also TONS of fun. If you try to take this movie at all seriously, you aren't going to appreciate it. So leave your intellect behind, and just enjoy the corny dumb fun.

It's an ok comedy. I can do without the bird poop jokes and John Leguzamo getting puked on all over face within the same scene a mans face his covered in seagull shit while he gets sea sick. Seriously the shit lands in his eyes.

I usually like Leguizamo but this movie is wholly misguided junk.

If you like slapstick and fart gags, then this one is highly recommended. Also, I'm 12.

Acquired taste. Is it bad this turned into a guilty pleasure of mine throughout high school?

Wow I hadn't seen this movie in years, didn't even remember it being that good, but holy shitballs this is some funny stuff right here!! I've always loved John Leguizamo so maybe I'm biased? or stoned? yeah definitely stoned. everyone hating on this movie clearly didn't smoke a few bowls first. Shame on you people! I admit The Pest is retarded, but that's what makes it so fucking awesome!! it's actually kind of brilliant.

A cult classic by today's standards. Go into this movie expecting nothing and you may find yourself surprised. Go into this movie drunk or high and you may find yourself giggling like the idiot for which it was created. Nostalgic and sentimental, it was "Dude Where's My Car" three years prior, based on that classic The Most Dangerous Game, a short story pretty much everyone had to read in high school. While Surviving the Game takes itself all too seriously with a dreadlocked Ice-T being stalked by Dr. Cox of Scrubs fame, The Pest never takes itself seriously, in any way, ever, which is part of the charm. The only thing missing from the poor production quality is a boom mike dropping into a shot, or a reflection of the camera crew in a mirror. There's no other movie like it.

One of the most thoroughly annoying, cliched, obnoxious movies I've ever seen. It's a shame, since Leguizamo can be funny and can also act.

Watch the opening section on you tube. You will not believe your eyes and ears.

I thought it was funny movie.

John Leguizamo pulls off a truly annoying performance, on purpose. A parody of "the most dangerous catch"
