: I know I speak among fans of the movie, but I have to ask, why did people think it was this horrid flick that almost ruined Kevin's career. Sure, it wasn't up to the high standards of "Clerks" but why did people think it was this huge bomb? I thought it did okay at the box office. I mean, it couldn't have cost much. So what is with people thinking it was the other "Showgirls" of the year? I think it might be the 2nd Kevin DVD I get. Would the commentary help explain all this to me?
: Also, sorry for clogging the board up with bs. I just have a lot of stuff to ask of the fans and Kevin.
well I believe the story goes that it was the first "teen-titty" movie in a long time and among critics that genre is usually viewed as campy no matter who makes it. And what about this it might be the second? The commentary does give insight on how and why the movie was recieved the way it was...buy it...own it yesterday!
