A recycled message
18 December 1998 | by (Cleveland,Ohio) – See all my reviews

This movie serves one purpose and one purpose only, and that is to teach people that steroids are bad for you. This has been tried so many times before, the whole message begins to lose its meaning. So the writers decided to make it more appealing by adding in a bus-load of profanity and an occasional sexual remark ("some guys would give their left nut to be where you are"). However, none of this helps. How many times do you have to tell us that steroids can kill you? Sure, there's still some idiots who see this and continue taking them, but to the rest of us it's just a recycled message.
