"HOLD WHAT WHERE?", 16 August 2000

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.....
