A fun romp of a film.
7 November 2001 | by rcs8See all my reviews

It's been years since I saw this film. BRAVO network used to show it fairly regularly back in the early 80's. Yes, it is somewhat silly at times, but it held my attention from start to "Weekend"-style finish. Basically good fun. A 6 or 7 out of 10.
