Trivia

The costume Gene Simmons wears for his nightclub act is actually the same costume that actress Lynda Carter wore for her television special _Encore! (1980)_, in which she tried to look like a member of the band KISS while singing "I Was Made for Loving You". See more »

Gene Simmons is the only reason to see this one.
14 August 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Gene made me laugh until I cried. He took this horrible mess and ran with it. The rest of the cast...well, what rest of the cast? This one is a real stinker but if you're a hardcore KISS fan you can appreciate the utter hilariousness of Gene's performance. Don't get me wrong, this movie overall is the worst I have ever seen but if seeing Gene Simmons in drag will live on tape long enough for my grandkids to see it, then it's worth it. LOL I pull it out of the cabinet whenever I need a good gut busting laugh with a horrible script.
