Thankfully MST3K did a treatment of this.
17 July 2001 | by (Chicago 'burbs) – See all my reviews

I don't know what persuaded the makers of this movie to release it. I don't know why they hired the editor they did. He should be lynched for technical ineptitude--not that he had much to work with. And so should anyone else associated with this movie.

UNLESS you are viewing the MST3K version. Then this movie becomes a real laff riot.
