Joey Travolta's triumph!
1 September 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Joey Travolta has proved he is a great director with this gem of a film! A wonderful cast. A witty script. This film is engaging from start to finish. This is one of those films you will be telling your friends to watch. I really enjoyed it. Joey is supposed to be directing a film about the life of movie star, Sal Mineo. Well, this film proves he would do an outstanding job making a movie about Mineo. I truly hope investors see this film. They should be lining up around the block to get the Mineo film made. I own Sal Mineo's website and am convinced after seeing this film, Joey Travolta shoud make the movie about Sal Mineo.
