Reviews
Mine: The writing is strictly routine and some of the plot points are just silly. What makes this watchable are the top notch perfomances by Queen Latifa and Steve Martin. She has amazing screen presence! Steve has a great gift for physical comedy. To give you an idea of the type of movie this is; the funniest scene involves laxatives! I enjoyed it, a good antidote to the real world.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: When a lonely guy meets a woman on the Internet who happens to be in prison, she breaks out to be with him, and proceeds to wreak havoc on his middle-class life.
