Newton stinks up the screen
15 December 2003 | by (Chapel Hill) – See all my reviews

Wow, this was a really cheesy, bad movie. The acting was so bad. The lead, guy, was stiff as a board. But I saw him again in in some gay porn movie many years later. He was doing a scene with that guy from Fraternity Vacation. He seemed to have loosened up a little and was acting more naturally.
