Wanna watch something funny?
29 October 1998 | by (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

The only reason I rented this flick, was because it starred "Joey" from "A Nightmare On Elm Street 3 - Dream Warriors", as well as "Heather Chandler" from "Heathers". And that is the only reason to watch this crud. You want to see an actor do their worst job, then rent this one.
