Classic B Movie!
2 July 2002 | by lamac1067See all my reviews

A movie lover's delight! This was one of the early roles for Gina Mastrogiacomo (Janice Rossi of the movie, Goodfellas). It's a shame she didn't get bigger roles after this picture. Yes, the script is lacking and the acting isn't Shakespeare, but it's a lot of fun to watch and it looks like they had fun making it. Mastrogiacomo's character, Ginny was absolutely hilarious, as was the story line between her and her comic book creator boyfriend. I have two copies of this title and would kill for a copy of the poster. Don't be so critical and just have fun with it!
