This is a great movie!, 16 December 2000
Author: goonorama from Huntington Beach, CA

This movie is so much fun for so many reasons. It has action, ridiculous dialogue, rampant sexism, a dash of gore, and very funny performances. There are many schools of thought that might say Tawny Kitaen's performance was bad. I disagree. Her blend of innocence, energy, and complete lack of formal actor training are perfect for this movie. Much of the same goes for Brent Huff as the leading man. Watch this film with friends! Oh, and did I mention nudity? It's got that too. An excellent cinematic experience. Sequel, please.
