: should I go to this flick and watch the Gobble Bobble, or save my money for a KISS concert?
Now I will say first, that I have not personally seen this flick.
But two of my best friends got whipped into going to it by their
respective mates. Considering we are talking about two serious
alpha-male types that I wouldn't expect bitching from b/c of the
chance to salivate over the "talents" of Jennifer Lopez (I refuse
to refer to her as J-Lo)...I was quite surprised at the acidic

boss who orders the job doubts his ability, so he sends Ricki (Lopez) to
If you can't see the inherent problems already, then this movie might
just be for you....
