I like the movie-- but, then, I'm in it., 20 December 2002
Author: Ted Newsom from Burbank, California

The script seems let down by the realization, despite the good attempt at period production values. Benny Benewitz is excellent, the girls not so terrific. Most of the supporting cast are better than you could expect from an ultra-low budget movie.

There are designed echoes of Groucho Marx in the story, though the character is nowhere near as caustic as the real Groucho. The film doesn't deserve the obscurity it received.
