African Bum Disease
19 June 2001 | by (Aber, Wales) – See all my reviews

Yep, pretty similar to Outbreak, but it does a fairly good job.

The usual American TVM stuff; naff cliches, overacting, lots of hairspray, the usual TVM faces, a happy ending and a soft picture finish.

Best bit is when Sheridan whacks fatty doctor round the chops with a spade - made me laugh out loud...

The plot isn't bad too, which rises this above the normal 2/3/4's that yer average TVM gets. But not that much!

5/10
