For acting less wooden, watch a cigar store indian!
17 May 2004 | by (NorthWest Ohio) – See all my reviews

This movie was dreadful from start to finish. From the score to the hokey storyline to the AWFUL acting and portrayals of everyone in the film. The only way my husband and I could watch this film was to give it the MST3000 treatment. And we had lots of fun, but at the movie's expense.

We laughed out loud at the ridiculous singing that underscores several points in the film.

We guffawed at the fact that they kept passing the same bit of scenery over and over.

We could not understand why the Indian chief spoke English with no accent, but couldn't seem to put his words in the right order.

But our favorite part was waiting for the Scalper guy to repeat what someone had just said, but rephrase it as a question. "Wanna know what I think about (insert previous line here)?"

Dreadful.
