More like stinkweed....
16 September 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If ever there was a movie that SHOULD have been directed by Alan Smithee....

"Tulips" basically details the "romance" if that's the word, between an odd woman (Peters) and an even odder man (Kaplan) who is contemplating suicide.

Though this was billed as a comedy, I didn't laugh. Nope, not even a smile. Not a snicker. This isn't even worth laughing at condescendingly.

A product from our neighbors to the north (Canada, for those of you not reading this in the United States), this is the leading reason why Kaplan is best remembered for "Welcome Back, Kotter".

Lord knows he'd prefer it that way.

And as for Bernadette...well, the less said about her involvement, the better.

One star. Please, someone plant these "Tulips" six feet under.
