"I can vouch that the soundtrack is worth while"
26 June 2003 | by (philly) – See all my reviews

It should be a crime that Police Academy had over 3 sequels and I lost track of the number of Lethal Weapons after they lost steam with the second installment, and yet the Sidney Poitier-Bill Cosby comedy pairings are not yet available on DVD and a Stevie Wonder musically driven project seems to have vanished from the earth. I just completed a power point on the life and contributions of the man born Steveland Morris. In an otherwise saccharin report, I will have one sidebar in which I explain my disconcert with the burying of a project that Mr. Wonder was so heavily involved with. If you ever get the opportunity to see this film, you are in store for a treat as it is a hard to find attraction. Although, I haven't had the opportunity to view this film, given the soundtrack and the non-threatening subject matter one can predict that it is worth a look.
