Dorky and Dorkier
17 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Where I am there are several cable TV channels showing 24 hours of movies; the majority of the movies shown are total rubbish, which to the torture of prospective viewers are repeated ad nauseam. This movie is high up on the rubbish list. The opening scene is a dorky son talking to himself and then the dorkier father doing the same.And talking nonsense at that. After half an hour of complex plots and sub-plots,going no-where except into confusion, plus a half-hearted and artificial 'make it up as I go along' bunch of ham actors, a script that has hardly any semblance of reality, I switched this garbage off. Who on earth in their right mind would finance drivel like this???!!!! 1 out of 10.
