Worst film I ever seen...
14 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie is by far the worst I have ever seen. Don't get me wrong, I love slapstick, I can even confess liking Police Academy. But this?

The basic story, some kids join a "Dojo" to become marshall arts masters. Of course they mess up. The director's been following the blueprint on how to make a slapstick comedy.

don't see it, never, noway, nohow...please..
