May become a cult classic - for the wrong reasons
12 March 2002 | by alexander_bcSee all my reviews

I think that this will become a cult classic - but not for being a good movie. When I was a teenager, I went out with friends to see this movie when it first came out in the late 70's. After it ended, we all gave each other a puzzled look and then expressed it in verbal terms - What was that! We wondered why we had spent good (and scarce) money on this fertilizer-in-celluloid-form. This is why I still remember that movie after all these years.
