Better than I imagined
9 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

1st of all this could very well be an undiscovered gem of 80's B movie comedies.

Now don't think your getting the best movie ever made, the actors are headed by the guy that played Chaka in Land of the Lost (no kidding really), but don't let that fool you this movie is actually pretty funny, despite the other reviews here (which I respect, but disagree with).

I don't know, but what can I say, sit back don't over analyze it, and give it a chance it's better than you might think.

Plus what can I say Leslie Danon is pretty hot.
