It's amazing
6 August 1999 | by TromaticSee all my reviews

Amazing that Troma has survived, with this being their first movie. Very dull, particularly for a Troma film. This studio would get better, however. I believe that this says it all, but this system wants to force me to provide at least 4 lines commentary. So here you are.
