Sidehackin is the thing to do
11 December 1998 | by See all my reviews

Oh yeah! Let's hear it for this bomb! Cooch! Did I not love him? MY OWN FLESH I DIDN'T LOVE BETTER!!!! But he had to say "Noooooooo".

Misteeophiles will surely know this one as one of the best films that joel and the bots did. It probably never would have been seen by any human being again after its release if not for their recycling cinematic madness. Thankee-sai!

BTW, I have a friend who's spent a lot of time in the Orient. He claims that sidehacking is alive and well in the Phillipine Islands. Long live the sport that never lived!
