What a 70's jewel!
8 April 1999 | by (East Texas) – See all my reviews

I totally adore this film! It is truly among the more terrible creations to ever be released on the world! Definitely watch it with a remote so you can catch all the little oddities. Don't be fooled by Troma's attempts to pass this off as a modern flick--it is from 1974, and definitely NOT a Costner film. He has a very small part, though you can see the budding talent in this 19-year-old. He's the only one with talent, though. Look for fun things like articles of clothing that disappear and reappear--this film is PACKED with unintended hilarity! Enjoy!
