Cool weird flick! Strangest ever made?
24 February 2005 | by galaxis007See all my reviews

This movie is so strange it simply must be seen. If the idea of Yasmin Bleeth and Buddy Hackett in the same film isn't enough to blow your mind; just watch a few minutes. The movie is totally surrealistic. Difficult to say whether it would be better to smoke pot first or not. It could be TOO much if you were stoned. Then again, you might need to be high to handle it. You'll understand what I'm saying after you see this. Could be a stiff challenge for even the top weirdies like "The Forbidden Zone" I promise you'll never think of Buddy Hackett the same way again. I rented it because the Blockbuster had absolutely nothing to watch that day, funny how you run across things you'd never find any other way.
