A definite must-see.
11 October 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

And not because this is good film! No, this movie is so incredibly awful you have to see it! There are too many mistakes for me to recount here, so you'll have to see the film for yourself! While nothing compares to the badness of "Pod People", this movie comes close! A definite must see!
