| Pretty amusing actually!
I'm amazed this movie doesn't have more comments. It's not the best comedy flick out there, but I've definitely seen worse. All in all I found this movie pretty damn amusing, with some definite laugh out loud moments (like someone unexpectedly talking with their bellybutton) to be had. I would say if you want a feel good comedy with no great expectations this one is a keeper.

The plot is a bit odd, Rob Schneider plays a corrupt time share salesman who's made millions,gets caught and sent to prison. Naturally his main fear is that he is going to be violently raped over and over during his stay and so enlists a martial arts master (Carradine, who better?) to teach him how to defend himself before he's committed. There is more to the plot of course, but I don't want to give anymore away.

There really are some good parts played by some surprise actors, some unknowns, and a fair share of MMA fighters, and all in all they all play pretty funny roles. This movie isn't a masterpiece, there's some plot holes, and some of it just plain didn't make sense. But that's beside the point. This is a funny movie and more people should see it.

Did I mention Rob Schneider totally knows martial arts and kicks ass? Because he does.
