Finally no Captain Kirk! Shanter as actor imagin that!
17 February 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Finally a Shatner film with no stupid Star trek references in it ! My God he can act! Unlike the painful "Free Enterprise" made for all the " Please,Get a Life " trekkies, Shanter creates a new character and its pretty funny. He plays an escaped mental case who's "Voice cries out to be heard" and has a script that must be made under him arm. Shatner has many witty scenes that are a pleasure to watch. I was reminded of the old "Twilight Zone'"Shatner. It's nice to see Shanter with out all the dreary Star Trek baggage in tow.
