Hilarious
thebishop23 October 2000
I found this obscure movie playing on HBO once at 3AM. It had just started and I figured I'd be up anyway. 15 minutes into the movie, I found myself laughing as hard as I ever had in my life.

While the story is a bit silly, it plays well with the cast it's given, all of whom are either comedy veterans like Eric Idle and Andrea Martin to the likes of Robert Downey Jr and Ralph Macchio, who plays the world's biggest scum ever seen in this movie

The movie centers around two gay siblings who are forced into producing an heir within one year of their father's death. But it's really the lengths they go to trying to get this done and the freaks they meet along the way that really make this flick a lost treasure. I won't go so far as to call it a classic, but since that fateful night at 3AM, I've watched this movie over and over (thankfully, I was able to get copy it as I've never found a real version of it anywhere since).

If you want to watch something silly with actors you know and/or love, don't have a problem with story lines that center around gay people and aren't interested in too coherent of a story, or if you just want to see Ralph Macchio play something completely different for once, and lord above knows he's the reason I love this movie so much (something I can't say too often), watch this movie.

This was one of the funniest movies I had seen that year!!!

Granted, the premise was stupid, this movie has me ROTFLOL!!! I soon forgot the name of it, but never gave up trying to find it. I saw it by "accident" at a sneak preview and didn't realize it was going to be something that I would want to have in my library.

I loved it.

Warning: Spoilers
This is a film that is either loved or hated. I saw it dubbed into German about 12 years ago and have been trying to track it down ever since.

I know that it is full of stereotypes, but that is what a lot of comedies are based on; that is why they are funny, because we all recognize the type of person being prtrayed.

Robert Downey is great, Ralph Machio is good, the cast is quality.

*********SPOILER*******

Robert D. & Ralph M. are real estate agents, during one call they try to sell a piece of land to someone who wants to build a church. It's in an ideal location, nice and quiet, where? About 50 miles east of Moscow!!!!!

If you think that is funny, you will like this film.

Silly gay-themed movie with silly plot, badly executed.

Movie is about gay brother and lesbian sister and having to get married or have a baby with someone to get an inheritance.

Good cast is wasted.

Just Awful...Enough To Truly Offend Anyone
Mitch-3829 February 2000
I was saddened to see that the modern "Entertainment industry" of this country could still put out awful, stereotyped images lacking even one dimensional sensibilities. What next, "Mammy with a banjo" on her knee?! For shame on anyone who voluntarily had anything to do with this movie.

The storyline is so preposterous, insulting and childish... Gentle reader, consider yourself warned.
