Cheap!
21 September 1998 | by (Brevard, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

I would think that any movie staring the king as himself would have more of a budget than this. The whole film seems to have only 10 people ever speaking and those that do sound like a high-school play, very wooden. If it weren't for the shots of the race cars this film would get a 1.
