PG-13 movie has a lot of R-type material.

A movie made by yahoos for yahoos...the cinematic equivalent of a body-slam in which the viewer is on the receiving end.

Features a shameless cross-promotion we had better get used to in this era of media conglomerates. The script could be mistaken for the portfolio of the Time-Warner empire.

Fans of ***- and feces-based humor will be rolling in the sticky, sticky aisles. Others may be only slightly amused.

It's less about being good and more about existing to suck dollars out of wallets.

A work of deviant genius, a hilarious hog wallow in juvenile mindlessness with a gentle spirit of self-mockery and a heart of gold.

Platt is a good comic actor and I have liked him in a lot of movies, but here he is not well-used.

Comic virtues linger in the memory a little longer than the farcical brutality of this pandering noisefest. Not that that's a significant victory.

Arquette and Caan, however, aren't given much to work with.

Spectacularly inane and poorly made film.

A pile driver to the brain.

Jeff Vice
Deseret News, Salt Lake City
January 1, 2000
A moronic, low-brow comedy that's only marginally better than its even more moronic trailer and TV ads.
Top Critic

Toilet-humor farce proud of its own crudeness.
| Original Score: 2/4

Idiot comedy 101.

Isn't worth the price of admission, even for wrestling fans.
