User Reviews

Barely released would be action, or was it comedy?
9 November 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This film barely played anywhere (bottom half of UP IN SMOKE in Los Angeles in most theatres) as it features Marjoe Gortner as a guy who is framed as a drug smuggler, gets help from a town drunk (Robert Lansing) and gets mixed up in a middle of a drug deal in Hawaii. Intresting original songs are featured in this PG film with very little of anything. From the company that brought you DOGS and later turned into the late American Cinema in the 80's. Not recommended.
