Bad, just plain bad
19 May 2000 | by (YEEEHAAAA) – See all my reviews

God did I hate this. How did I see it? You might ask? Happens that a school field trip was made to the movie theater which only has one screen, and the movie showing was rated R, so the principal put this on as a "history lesson". Now that's just plain weird considering IT HISTORICALLY INACCURATE, such as no California before Civil War, and other problems. Too violent to be rated a kids flick, even though that's what it's intended to be, but if you want your kids going around saying swear words, BE MY GUEST! And... Bad acting GALORE! Bad script, and I didn't know a town could be so barren! When I saw the governor's mansion, the question that came to mind was "Governor of WHAT?"

In conclusion, STAY AWAY.
