Goofs

When the explosives are detonated at the wire fence, Misty simply hits the detonator plunger positioned all the way down against the body of the detonator, instead of pulling it all the way up and pushing it down. The generator inside could not have generated the electrical charge for detonation without the plunger being pulled all the way up and pushed down. See more »

My brief review of the film
29 November 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

An awfully silly little comedy with only half-baked satirical elements, the film is however energetically acted, especially by Jamie Farr and Rich Little, and what those two actors alone can do makes the film worth checking out. The director, John De Bello, is best known for 'Attacking of the Killer Tomatoes', and while this film did not gain the same cult status, it possibly is better. The music soundtrack is great, and some of the satirical aspects do work: the secret ingredient is sort of like Coca Cola's secret ingredient, and the market competition does reflect the consumer orientated society of today - but if only it were not full of silly gags and characters that do the film no good. Richard Gilliland is also not the most convincing choice for his leading part, but Farr and Little do spice up the acting side.
