So Bad That It's Good
21 October 2003 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

Robbie Benson has made a career out of over-acting and acting poorly. In this bad film I believe he also directs as well as stars in it. All of the acting in this film is bad. The characters are not sympathetic at all and it is just so stupid that I enjoyed it thoroughly! Danny Aiello as the mob boss, Tawny Kitaen as the girlfriend, the dude from TV commercials as the best friend, the "slick' drug dealer "Butchie", it's all so terrible. This should have a special spot on the cult classic shelf.
