I got this expecting a camp riot. What I found was a fairly standard propaganda piece, a bit confused at times but generally aware of itself enough to stay "on message" as the phrase goes these days.

As a result, the film isn't as funny as originally billed; it really provokes no strong response in me at all. Ho-hum.
