Dreadful!
26 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

Not even the label of "camp" can save this one. A precursor of The Producers, but without its sparkle or satiric bite. Chevalier does everything short of winking at the camera--a sad final chapter to his career. The project ends up resembling the intentionally bad TV pilot that the film is about.
