Remarkably bad movie
20 January 2001 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Rarely, does a film combine so many poor actors, such a lame story, stilted script writing and unappealing characters.

The good thing about this movie is the 2 minute cameo appearance by Corinne Wahl describing how much she enjoys riding on motorcycles. Very sexy scene. This segment appears about 5 minutes into the movie. After that, eject the tape from your VCR and throw it into the fire.
