Guest Star.....THE BOOM MICROPHONE!!!
25 April 2001 | by berniebrownSee all my reviews

This is a movie that will have your jaws dropping!! For half the movie, you can see the bottom of the boom microphone and in some shots, THE ENTIRE BOOM MIC IS IN VIEW!! Also within this bad movie are people in a viewing room who are reviewing a bad movie. Definitely a movie that will have your head spinning!! This was a movie that the guys at MST3k would have had a field day roasting.....
