Probably not as good as I remember.
20 May 2010 | by (Harrisburg, PA, USA) – See all my reviews

I'll give it an 8. Some memorable moments, but if I watched it, it would probably not stand up to memory. I don't remember many of the actors except John Paragon as Ramon Estaca. John, of course, was notable as Jambi from Pee Wee's playhouse. I remember there was one parody of Tina Turner called Tina Turn-On and she would do a weather report and say how things were "hot" like Tina sings in Better Be Good to Me. It's a shame things like this will never be released on DVD.
