A childrens tv movie and that is all!
7 August 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I think of the title of "National Lampoons" and i think of a hilarious insight into popular culture and the "cult" things of our times. I had expected something close to "Spaceballs" but was reminded instead of why i grew up! Do not view this movie unless you are grafting your child onto the realm of "Star Wars"....

Please step lightly!
