It's OK for a movie with Chachi, 25 February 2009
Author: Nick Damian from Toronto, Ontario

What a long way he has come...from the old Happy Days to here.

Still looks like the same old Chachi...Scott Baio - finally cast as somebody not so nice.

Well he wasn't overly mean either - he was just a little rougher than his boyish typecast personality in every other show.

This is like Charles In Charge with a touch of a mean streak and a lot of money.

Not a horrible movie, but has lots to be desired because the thugs and mean guys have no personality and the cops have little to do too.

As for the daughter, sexy and sultry but really - does her character have to be so perfect looking but yet so bland? It's a Saturday afternoon movie - a time waster and yes - there are worse movies than this...even if it does have Scott Baio as a lead; it's still not overly horrible.
