typical
9 September 2003 | by (Rutherford.. NJ) – See all my reviews

i thought this movie was cool the first time i saw it.. like when i was in 5th grade... low and behold 10 years later when i see it again, I WAS TOTALLY TOTALLY WRONG. this movie was quite bad. it's one of those that you regret seeing, like howard the duck. my suggestions is to take every copy of it off the market and have a good old burn pile. the movie is garbage and if i ever wanna see something like this, i'll just turn on the upn or the daily news.
