Bottom of the barrel comedy
17 July 2016 | by Red-BarracudaSee all my reviews

A public relations man goes to Florida for a holiday, when there he comes into contact with some river people who are fixing up a boat. Before long he finds himself assisting the poor folks in their fight against evil corporate types who are polluting the river where they live.

Sadly, I found this comedy to be pretty interminable and completely devoid of laughs. Its story-line was completely forgettable and it was quite a challenge remaining even vaguely interested with events that unfolded on screen. I couldn't really find anything to keep my interest going quite honestly.
