User Reviews

I was enthralled by such a refreshing, original work of art.
27 March 2001 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

One of the most refreshingly unique films I have ever seen. A must-see for those who liked Raising Arizona or the Space Ghost series. Campy and entertaining and a most welcome break from the formulaic drivel. If you like "pop" movies, you will not understand this one. But if you are tired of the same old thing, you need a hero. Fearless Frank is that hero.
