Disaster area!
4 February 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This movie is another dismal attempt to cash in on the eighties trend for self-consciously zany comedies that featured lots of T&A, fashionable grossness and outright stupidity. Some examples of the genre are actually pretty good (choose your own favourite), but this isn't one of them!

Kelly Monteith was very popular in the UK for a very brief time in the early eighties, then his career faltered. I wouldn't be at all surprised if this movie contributed to his downfall, as it is just dreadful beyond belief. Technically poor, with a freewheeling, thrown-together, improvisatory feel, and hardly a laugh anywhere. I still can't believe someone signed the release form!

The only watchable scene is the 'Making Money' musical number in which the always gorgeous Corinne Wahl (she has a habit of turning up in dreck like this...SPRING BREAK, anyone?) slinks for her supper, displaying her eye-boggling physique and a pretty good singing voice. That sequence alone is almost worth the admission price, but only if you're a hardcore fan of hers. Otherwise, avoid this complete clinker like the plague. Or buy it, drool once, then tape over it.
