why do people be hatting on this movie? it was funny! admittedly the leading lady character is completely a B on wheels but... OK so maybe the filmmaker was a misogynist, u wanna make some-thin of it?!?!?!
anyway, I enjoyed this movie a lot hokey as it was . . . cause it was funny!
DNA Dooley was really impressive, with his Swedish accent. why does one glom here say that's a flaw? the character was Swedish! whattdya want an Irish brogue?!!!!
full of delightful bits of business. this ain't raging bull or . .. . sure it Wildon't win the coveted Oscar or even a coveted Enema, I mean Emmy! but it was fun and only 76 minutes. ..
so what if they leading man was also a heel? so the two of them deserved each other!!!!
I'm sure Uli did much better with a woman more like a young version of the Madonna what runs the flophouse!!!
