Just not funny.
29 September 2001 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I'll give this movie one thing. David Foley, that's it. The acting is so bad, even for 1986. The plot outlins a boy, Bo Baker (Folet) hired by his uncle who really for some unknown reason HATES him, to uncover a nazi scandle.

Out of 10-3.1 for creativity.
