I LOVE to hate this movie!
9 April 2001 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

A movie you hate to admit that you love! Acting is bad, plot is predictable....what more could you ask for in a movie that you love to hate??? Mitch Gaylord is gorgeous though in the scenes where he is in his black bikini underwear! This makes it worth the rental in itself!
