Bad movie
15 December 2006 | by joebat23See all my reviews

The script was bad and the acting was bad. It was supposed to be a comedy but it wasn't funny -- I would call it verbal slapstick, juvenile. I would expect 13 year olds to act like this, maybe, but not adults, not even in a comedy. The dialogue was unbelievably stilted. There wasn't a realistic moment in the film. All the Asians in the film were presented as caricatures. I tuned in to AMC part way through the film, actually not too long after it started, and kept watching it mainly to see the credits at the end. I didn't realize it would last another two hours. Another annoying aspect was the martial music they played non-stop. MASH, which debuted a few years later, was the movie they were trying to make but fell far short of.
