Tremendous fun, Great Twists
24 May 2005 | by (Whittier, CA, United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this with my wife about 5-6 years ago.

We rented it because I was on my Claudia Christian phase. (Still am, but that is another story...)

Claudia was also in The Hidden - a classic sci-fi / horror film.

I've been recommending this movie for years.

Today, I found out that it was written by Alan Spencer, the Creator, and writer for Sledge Hammer!

Very screwball, about a liar's fantasy gone bad.

Enough comedy, and enough storyline to make you forget that there is a method to the madness.

Now I double recommend this film - no wonder it was so great! Enjoy!
