"Mr. Hex" starts off a little slow and has a couple of forgettable songs but, at the end of the day, it delivers a pretty good Bowery Boys movie. This movie is not among the Boys best but it's not one of the weaker ones either. It's in the upper middle if you know what I mean. I'll probably check this one out again sometime down the road. Honorable mention: a dreamy Gale Robbins.
