I was more interested in this movie because it was the first out the door of the then newly-minted MTV film production stable.

I don't know what I expected, but I got what I deserved - Jerry O'Connell acting like an idiot, an inanely stupid premise that went on far too long, a terrible script and shocking acting.

It was only just worth sitting through it for the few magical glimpses of the deliciously delectable Megan Ward, but the story - of a slob who moves into a New York apartment populated with sentient cockroaches who proceed to make his life hell before making friends and then saving the day - is as forgettable as... you know... that other movie with that guy?

The only thing that makes it interesting is the then-ground breaking CGI work back when the technology was only taking its baby steps. Watch the credits and you'll see it came courtesy of an animation studio called Blue Sky, who'd of course go on to give the likes of Pixar a run for its money with the obscenely successful Ice Age movies.
