What is he, a pimp now?
I've seen countless teeny bopper comedies the past couple of years, and
I can honestly say, this wasn't one of them.
This was a good, straight forward comedy, with some hilarious moments
and a lovable character. The story was also interesting, even though it
was very predictable from the beginning (I don't know many people who
watch comedies for a complex, deep, mysterious story line anyways)
My favorite thing about the movie is all the actors fit in perfectly
with the characters they are playing. Especially the main character,
who develops through the movie from a weak, shy, kind hearted guy, to
somebody who is still kind at heart, but not afraid to defend himself
and fight for what he wants.
This isn't the best comedy ever, but its good. And I would recommend it
to anybody looking for a good laugh out loud movie with lovable
