You either get it or you don't!
8 May 2002 | by maxmooneySee all my reviews

Which explains a lot of the votes of "1"... Lou Pearlman (boyband daddy)executive produced and is in the first scene of this, one of my fave "bad" movies... it's not really bad but it is "out there." And star Steve Antin, who wrote and produced it, is very cute. The ensemble cast (check out the fire power) gamely gives their all and, like I said, you either go along for the ride or you don't. I did... and I still do every few months.
