There have been worse 80s comedies than this one.
13 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

This frantic comedy suffers from Pinchot's annoying performance as the psychic - especially when he gets spastic. Larroqutte, playing it mostly straight, comes off better. The movie gets very silly at times, but at least it never stops moving. Certainly it's not deserving of such a low "average rating" on this site (at this time, 2.9). Something closer to a "5" would be more appropriate.
