TRAGIC CARPET RIDE!
13 January 2000 | by (CARDIFF,WALES) – See all my reviews

There is nothing like a good Arabian Nights fantasy adventure movie and this is nothing like a good one.This is a waste of film,money and time and they couldn't even think of a decent title;if these guys had made a western they would have probably called it "COWBOY STORY".....Why not call this trash "CALIPH FINDS ANDY HARDY" and have done with it?
