Lowa Ninja Kick-Boxers and Gov. Ben Nelson...ONLY IN AMERICA!
16 May 2000 | by (Nebraska) – See all my reviews

As other comments have indicated, this is a VERY funny and satiric movie if you are from Omaha or are familiar with the nuances of this Midwestern oasis.

If not, you'll probably be in quite a fog, but get over it. People not from Scotland still get Macbeth, don't they?

A quirky, high energy romp that is refreshingly original...maybe next will be "Cornhusker Football--The Musical"?
