Its not half bad.
8 December 1999 | by matthiasfSee all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, this is not a GREAT movie, but if its on t.v., its definitely worth watching. Its basically one of those typical 80's movie thats only shown on Comedy Central or USA. But its not half bad, its written pretty good and quite funny at times.
