A dud of a movie
26 March 2006 | by auditorberlinSee all my reviews

Believe it or not, I actually had a very small role in this movie that was spliced out during editing and I actually dozed off on several occasions waiting to see myself(before I discovered that I had been deleted). Now just ask yourself, how bad must a movie be if one of the background 'actors' actually falls asleep while viewing the movie and checking to see his debut? However, I did get to see Leigh McCloskey from Dallas while I spent an afternoon in Watts of all places with a bunch of other slugs filming this movie. But I must admit, I enjoyed the experience and my presence didn't add or take from the movie since I was about as essential as a contorted cigarette butt. The movie does contain an interesting ensemble(I hope I spelled that big word correctly, anyway, I'm too dam lazy to check the dictionary) but I digress, the interesting characters include Carl Lewis, Frankie Valli, Abe Vigoda(Fish from Barney Miller) and quite a few other Love Boat bound Hollywood legends. Well, as far as my 'movie career' is concerned, I did two other blockbusters during the same year of filming, 1986 and I have trouble remembering the other 2 since they didn't get anywhere either. I guess I was a bad luck charm when it comes to movies.
