Stupid movie with strangely short actor
27 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

It seems to follow the misadventures of a Charlie Sands, a short man in a bad wig.

The plot revolves around his antics in some unspecified desert country where he's trying to set up a holiday camp. The humour is mostly slapstick and the acting is rather poor.
