70's drive-in comedy
30 July 2000 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This was one of the last film First American film company released. The film has very little nudity, but it's has a likeable cast and even thrown in Dick Miller in the first 10min for the Roger Corman crowd. There's even a STAR WARS take-off in the begining. Recommended.
