A CRASH COURSE IN TRAVOLTAISM
18 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

Crash Course has it all...and none of it good. The plot is just a thin piece of floss used to hold together some of the most uninteresting car chases ever filmed. Somehting about gangsters and owed money...who cares? Let's just all enjoy a young and fit JOEY TRAVOLTA prancing about town in the tightest jeans ever caught on film. If the overdubbing doesn't distract you, Joey's hair will. Brother JOHN must've have taken some tips from JOEY when he did SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER! Did I forget to mention the story? There really isn't one. Unless you have an extreme TRAVOLTA FETISH, there is no reason to sit through this complete waste of time. I wish Joel, Servo and Crow T. Robot were there to get me through!
