I bought this DVD in a 'buy one get one free' deal, so I expected it to be complete pap. But, it's not.
Some of the situations are very funny (especially the scene where Fraser is a writer)- and you just can't help but laugh. However, at the same time, there are some scenes that start off funny and just get so over-done that you get a tad bit bored.
But the performance from the stars is, I think, overall very good. Brendan Fraser is very comic in his various states (and hairstyles), and makes you giggle.
And, suprisingly enough, so does Liz Hurley. I thought very little of her performances before (also of her films ie- Austin Powers), but in this she is very purswasive. Unlike Fraser at times, Hurley is not too silly. She keeps her accent and character the whole way through.
I especially like the relationship between her and Fraser; they had good chemistry.
So, all in all, this movie is fun- and is to be taken (very) lightly. I reccommend watching before buying, though!
