Alternate Versions

Theatrical version distributed by AIP in the United States featured a "violence warning" gimmick, i.e. a horn sound played before violent sequences. This was not included in the Canadian theatrical version distributed by Cinepix. A bell rang to indicate the end of the violent scenes. This version is offered as a bonus audio track on the current DVD and Blu-Ray releases. See more »

So this is what it takes to make it in Hollywood
1 February 2005 | by bbagnallSee all my reviews

I watched this film because of some SCTV skits featuring Bruno the Hunchback that were based on Eugene Levy's experience with this film. The Bruno character is called Bunker for some reason here.

The acting through this film is horrible, including Andrea Martin and Eugene Levy, but it's their early work so it's understandable. The film-making is often inept, such as when the three victims are playing Monopoly and the microphone is visible at the top of the screen for about three minutes. The males in the film, including Levy, are some of the dorkiest guys I have ever seen in my life. That Levy is the leading man indicates how bad some of the others must be. One guy even has fur on his arms, I swear.

Anyway, it's a laughable film that gets very tedious after the first 45 minutes or so once you realize it's going nowhere.
