what the ....?
25 December 2004 | by onepotato2See all my reviews

I thought (I recall) that lifelong-super-dingbat Dyan Cannon was responsible for this atrocity. It was about this time I began to detest her hopelessly cheerful, west-coast, idiocy. She has a brand of brewed-in-California, positive-vibes only, spacy on & off-topic blather that she employs to derail every conversation she particpates in.

I remember watching a bit of this with my mouth hanging open. There is a particularly appalling scene/effect with Cannon and Merlin holding hands and spinning in the cave for some unknown purpose.

What on earth is Malcolm MacDowell doing in this? It really has to be seen to be believed. One of the worst made-for-TV movies ever!
