The gun used at the end of the movie is not a real gun. If you look at the end of the barrel, it is clear it is either a squirt gun or a replica with a plugged barrel. See more »

1 October 2000 | by (Bracebridge Ont) – See all my reviews

It used to be that either a bottle of Canadian wine or a Canadian film sent people scurrying. The wines have improved. The films have not. This is an absurd plot with high school level acting, incompetent production and threadbare sets. Better we do no films than grind out embarassments like this. I was generous with a 2 vote. I regret not giving it a 1. However l is described as "awful." This film demands a stronger word.
