Verrrrrry Funny, classic cookie comedy!, 12 June 2005
Author: bluewave67 from United States

This film is very funny, although it is currently our of print. If you desire a cheesy 1980's film that puts a mercenary into the competitive cookie business...this is your film. Shadoe is hilarious! Precilla Barnes is also very good as the mayor of the town that Shadoe Stevens tries to "tame" in order to fund his cookie business. The only problem is that he can not cook! This film is classic overdone male machismo, wrapped up in cookie dough. Yes, it is predictable, but very funny nonetheless. As far as I know, this is the only film where Shadoe Stevens is the star. He became famous for doing the voice tracks and announcements for the original Hollywood Squares.
