Thank you!
20 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

I'd like to take the time to thank everyone who did anything in this film! This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen... BUT IT'S GREAT! This is the first movie I ever saw that showed me just how funny bad movies can be. Some are painful (Lost in Space), others are funny (Twin Sitters), while some are both (A Kid in King Arthur's Court). But this one....WOW! If you don't have a humor for bad movies, avoid it. But if you do: 10/10!
