Storyline

A documentary filmmaker, who has spent the last 15 years making films like "Aluminum: Our Shiny Friend," is finally given the chance to make the documentary on Indian farming he has always wanted to. The catch? He must simultaneously direct a porn film. But as he tries to make the porn film, which he turns into a musical called "Halloween in the Barracks," he must deal with a temperamental actor, a fundamentalist preacher, and other obstacles. Written by Mike Myers <mmyers@ucsd.edu>

Only reasons to watch it
8 September 1998 | by (California, CA) – See all my reviews

Since this film is not closed-captioned, the only reason I rented it was to find Andrea Parker (who's barely seen as one of the dancers, a nurse).

After watching the movie, I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to see Robert Downey Jr. parading around in a military coat and panties, showing off his legs.

Otherwise, it's just an entertaining farce of a movie whose bizarre plot lines can crack a smile or two.
