My guilty pleasure.
9 August 1999 | by houdini-4See all my reviews

It has bad acting, bad stunts, bad sets and I love it. This is right up there with Rocky Horror Picture Show and Plan Nine from Outer Space. I have probably watched this 20 times. The only redeeming value is the line: "Life is a wheel, what goes around comes around." Words to live by.
