Storyline

A suspicious hunchback is spying through a scope on the UCLA campus from a tower which he makes his home out of, when his eye catches a beautiful girl. He lustfully keeps his eye on her until he sees her being violently pushed away while trying to stop a guy from beating up her boyfriend. This makes the hunchback mad and he makes himself known by swinging from a rope Tarzan style onto the campus and attacks the man who pushed the girl away. The hunchback is later taken into custody by campus officials and is later examined by the campus professors, Cathy, the beautiful girl, and Alex, her boyfriend. While on a ride back to the campus, the hunchback escapes the police car and is being chased by Alex, Cathy, and one of the professors riding along with them, Dr. Webster. He leads the trio to his tower and shows them the whole place. Dr. Webster then feels that it's best for him to stay there and he, along with Cathy, asks Alex to stay with the hunchback. After a long argument, Alex ... Written by Anonymous

Cute Movie....
2 April 1999 | by (Manchester, NH) – See all my reviews

....but definitely belongs on Comedy Central's "Mastercheese Theater", which is where I always seem to catch this movie every time it's on. :-)

I think the movie is cute, although I don't know if it deserves the star rating it had when I looked up this movie. Bob is funny, I will give him credit for. I think Cory Parker was trying a little too hard to be Woody Allen with a lot of his lines in this film. It could have been better, but it is a good time killer.
