Weird. Wacky. Silly. Stupid.
19 February 1999 | by (Bridgewater, MA, USA) – See all my reviews

I've seen all four of these movies. The funniest one was the one about Salamander men. Man, was that funny! Ha Ha Ha! It featured this weird super hero named starman who wears skintight pants. Weird! Bizarre! This one also has those alien salamander men, who flopped around and there's also lots of mindless action (the creators of the dreaded Power Ranger show must have seen this as kids). If your're weird, you'll like this, anyone else beware!
