No Kidding!
10 January 2000 | by (New Yawk) – See all my reviews

This film is indeed one of many in a tired, tired genre. Dan Butler gives the only mentionable performance, but even this is strained by the predictable ending. The senator's son, who I assume we are supposed to feel for, is a sneering brat, and I was jealous of the senator himself who was granted an early, merciful relief from this stinker.
