Bring Me Back Tissues !
10 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the best Comedy film I have seen in a very very long time, the actors were horrible, the girls had nice figures but no acting skills at all and it was like looking at a high school drama class on dress rehearsal night. The only actors I enjoyed was Richard Lynch who played the role of a bad dude who wore white and did not want anyone to touch him or get too close or he would have to put a mask over his face, protecting him from a person's stink. Frank Stallone was also a good actor and these two actors carried this hopeless film on their backs. There was a game played Battle Ball which was a high-powered motor-cross with teams, the blue and red and the equipment used was metal claws, protective armor and caged in bikes with a goalie running all around in a caged vehicle. In one of the final scenes Richard Lynch asks another actor to "Bring Me Back Some Tissues". Bad News
