Keep in mind, I'm a fan of the boys.
18 May 2000 | by (Cleveland, OH) – See all my reviews

The Bowery Boys star in one of their earlier entries. In this one, the gang taps into the power of hypnotism in order to earn enough dough to help out a damsel in distress. Slip (Leo Gorcey) hypnotizes Sach (Huntz Hall) in order to give him the strength and stamina to win a local boxing tournament that has a prize of $2500. Bad guys hit the scene, of course, and bring in a ringer, as well as a bug-eyed hexer, Mr. Hex, who will sit ringside and jinx Sach with the evil eye. The quality is a bit better, being one of their earlier efforts, and a few laughs are had, especially once Mr. Hex comes on the scene. Of course, Bowery Boys fans will enjoy it more than others.
