It's Camp, it's funny, It's enjoyable!
28 August 2001 | by (Milwaukee, WI) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed watching and listening to Sheriff Cooper. His impersonations of John Wayne and other characters cracked me up. I wonder if anyone else caught that? Our entire family enjoyed the movie,as my son says it's "Camp" and you don't see flicks like this anymore, it's fun!
