MAKE IT STOP!!!!!
24 March 2001 | by (Hillsborough, NC) – See all my reviews

If your idea of fun is watching Adam West dance and simulate receiving oral sex, by all means, enjoy. Otherwise, this may very well be the worst movie I've seen made in the 80's. And I've seen SQUEEZE PLAY.

Phil Silvers was in this, too. And Rob Petrie's boss.
