No assassination on Wednesday, please, I have a history test
26 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

I saw this (or a very abbreviated version of this) film on TV back around 1985. It was a puzzle. I found of copy of the film, then bought my first VCR. I was not disappointed. It is the silliest movie I have ever seen! Every aspect of it's production (acting, writing, sound, composition, cinematography, etc.) is truly bad and hence it rates an 11 on the scale of 10 all-time-bad movies.

Malibu High improves with age like a fine wine - each viewing brings new insights into how bad (and how entertaining) a film can really be. I'd recommend a group viewing with like-minded friends who occassionally need to kick back and have a great laugh.
