Granted in 1989 there were not too many advances in special effects and the movie was indeed low budget, but there was always the underlining humor throughout the entire movie. Numberous funny one liners were delivered by John Larroquette were done so with just the right attitude and degree of seriousness to make the line that much funnier. I disagree with everyone who says that the movie was borish and unfunny, you must look deeper into the lines delivered then just the surface humor and slapstick. This movie to this day remains one of my all time favorites. If they ever released it on DVD I would be first in line to buy a copy.
