I saw it!
15 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Underground Aces" was released to movie theaters...I saw it as a youngster. Remember, this was back in the day, as cfc_can mentioned, of movies like "Car Wash"...which were a dime a dozen. Comedy ruled the day. I agree, though, that this film can be a guilty pleasure, just like "The Gumball Rally." (Another obscure 1976 film.) I went to see "Underground Aces" because I loved "Battlestar Galactica." Worth noting is "Underground Aces" director Robert Butler, who cut his teeth on many a Disney film and television show. Another star of note (and a staple of television) in an early film role (after her appearance in "1941") is Audrey Landers.
