Do films really get this bad?
14 October 2000 | by The_BaroSee all my reviews

Suspect plot, dodgy fight scenes, bad acting, this film has them all. The adverts in the middle of this film (on Channel 5 surprise, surprise) were a relief from the genuine awfulness. Its only redeeming feature is the reappearance of Cassandra's dad from Wayne's World 2 (I'm really scraping the barrel here!) Avoid
