Very Funny ,Well-Acted B-Comedy
9 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If there had ever been a Golden Globe Award for B-movies,this one would definitely have been a nominee in the comedy category.I expected Glenn Morshower to become a breakout star from this,even though he did not,he has become a successful character actor.The nostalgia element is strong now for a couple of reasons;the home video market was around the corner,killing the B-movie market,(such movies are now made for home video),& escalating real estate values started bringing down drive-in theaters at a faster rate,in favor of Wal-Marts,strip malls,etc.I understand this movie is not on home video,which is a pity.If anyone involved with it is reading this,I urge you to put it out on VHS & DVD.
