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.

"HOLD WHAT WHERE?"
16 August 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

this film is full of catchy/witty humor, and is a joy to watch. b.m.o.c. may not be for everyone because some people just can`t relate to a hunchback that has lived in a room that overlooks a college campus for most of his life. but if you give this movie a chance you will like it!

to be honest their really isn`t much to say about this film except that it`s about a hunchback that falls for a college co-ed and has some funny mis-adventures throughout the movie. it`s not a film that could win academy awards but it is a film that will win your heart, it`s one of those "feel good" movies that will end up having some kind of cult following for many years to come. rating (best of 5 stars) .....3.....
