Bad Script!!!
25 May 2000 | by (Toms River, NJ) – See all my reviews

This film didn't follow-up to the first two successful sequels! John Berry, was not a good director, and especially a bad script!!!

Tony Curtis (Father of Jamie Lee, starred in "Halloween" the same year), did an Ok job, and I say that this film was disaster!!!

NO STARS!!!
