Newt's movie review

Pre-requisite: Meatballs

Recommended viewing: Porky's

2 drink minimum. Be prepared for lots of Loverboy.

If you're in the right frame of mind, this movie's really funny. Otherwise it's just stupid. Garofalo has to work hard in a couple of places to keep things afloat but the rest of the cast, especially Meloni, settle nicely into their wacky characters.
