A waste of film, even in 3-D
10 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just saw this at the World 3-D Film Expo and it was the world premiere showing of it as a 3-D public showing. I can't even imagine why this was even made in the first place.

I guess they wanted to show off some of what could be done in 3-D, but, then they never showed it to the public in 3-D, only 2-D. Wow, it must've been dull, dull, dull...

17 minutes of hula in Hawaii and not on a crappy sound stage would've been far more interesting.

What's really funny is that the print I saw was brand new. It was struck recently from the original negative. Now we know what's cluttering up film vaults while other films are left to degrade and need 'saving.' Glad to know a no-talent like Pinky Lee is safe for posterity...whew...
