Pretty Damn funny
31 July 2004 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

The first time I saw this movie, my mom rented it for me back in 1993. Up until recently I had forgotten about the movie completely. I spent 3 months searching every video store in the area and coming up with nothing, then my friend found a copy on half.com and I was in business. This movie is so funny, completely random. The songs, the wolfman impressions, the amazing robot from outer space. My favorite song from the movie is "big men, big women". I cannot count the numbers of quotes from this movie. It may not be a masterpiece, but it will make you laugh your head off. If you can't laugh at this movie, then you are a cold heartless moron. But you don't understand, when the moon is full...I become a WOLF!
