It goes on longer than the Energizer Bunny...
17 August 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Geez, one of the most uninteresting movies ever made, or at least from the 70's. How they got Anthony Quinn in this is beyond me, he must have felt bad for the rest of the actors or something. I have to agree, the "Home of Sanchez" caption was the dumbest part of the whole movie, it seemed like it was from a comedy. This film seemed it would never end, and it bored me to the point of changing the channel after 37 minutes, but there was nothing else on, so I was stuck. Just plain horrible, the perfect cure for insomnia.
