Pretty bad.
2 November 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

All fans of "Emergency!" will want to burn this film, and that's mostly justified. This film has very few funny moments, the plot was idiotic, and the whole thing was a real waste of time. And don't think I'm just saying that to get a point across, this movie is really that bad. I can think of about 1000 other movies you can watch instead of this. Boy, I would have loved to see this on "Mystery Science Theater 3000". At least then the movie would have been funny.
