well done, very entertaining, excellent picture
17 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

Sit back and enjoy it. It is well done. It has a good story line and will entertain you and your family. The acting is excellent, color and photography are excellent as well. A real surprise of a movie. The boy in it is really innovative. Making slingshots out of condoms. Wow!
