So bad it's good!
5 June 2001 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Some films are just bad. Some films are so bad, they're fun to watch. This one is fun to watch. I knew it would be "good" when the box cover promised "George Kennedy in a dual role!" He can't play one role well but two? You bet!
