Total Bore!
3 September 2006 | by microx96002See all my reviews

This movie was a total bore, it was a strange mix of comedy drama musical and travelogue. I now feel I've been to New York City. It was a 75 minute TV movie dragged out to 96 minutes with drawn out shots of New York City, with no apparent reason other than to pad out the short story line. Not dramatic or funny enough to be interesting. Mickey Rooney as himself was pure Hollywood, I've met the man in person, and he's nothing like that. However if you were a teenager around 1981 you might find this mildly nostalgic, if you're a Scott Biao fan, he's got a total of probably less than 10 minutes in the movie. Watch it if you must, but you'll probably be bored to tears.
