The comedy is not revolting garbage, but actually well-written, rapid-paced and funny enough to squeeze howls out of the audience at least once every five minutes. That's not to say Barry Sonnenfeld's film isn't as dumb as an Arizona State football player
I would rather watch Cheryl Hines sing along hilariously to G.T.O. than hear Robin Williams crouching behind a tree hoping to convince his family he has diarrhea. Criminally, Sonnenfeld feels the opposite.
The movie will simply make a few million bucks and vanish, relegated to the darker closets of Blockbuster and Netflix, and historians will politely forget about it out of respect for the careers of those involved.
