Weekend Of Laughs!
23 November 2004 | by (Markham,Ontario) – See all my reviews

I taped this movie years ago & I thought that it was a pretty lame movie. But there were some really funny parts in it that were not meant to be funny. Lee Majors was cast as "Larry" a few years before his really big role as "Steve Austin" in "The Six Million Dollar Man". And Robert Conrad plays "Eddie" the main bad guy out of the two. The part that is really funny is the line that "Larry" says to "Eddie".

I quote: "Eddie! What are trying to do! Are you on something that I don't know about? Acid! Speed! Something?"

The line is a classic! If you ever get a chance to see this movie, keep it on until you get to hear "Larry" say that line. It's priceless! If I ever have the chance of meeting Lee Majors someday, I would ask him if he was on something that we didn't know about, after making this partly funny clunker...
