Mesmo com seu ˇtimo elenco, esta cˇpia sem personalidade de Vamos Nessa! e RÚquiem para um Sonho Ú o exemplo perfeito da expressŃo 'muito estilo para pouco conte˙do'.

Jean-Franšois Vandeuren

Despite its wackiness, it wasn't particularly funny. I should've known from the inclusion of John Leguizamo that that would be the case, but I… More
