The funniest bad TV movie Ever!
24 April 1999 | by TarynHWrightSee all my reviews

If you're like me and you love watching cheesy made-for-TV movies, this one is for you. Nothing is funnier than hearing Tony Danza try to pull off a Southern accent. The ending psychotic sequence is worth the price of a blank tape. If this is ever on Lifetime or something, take my advice. You'll laugh throughout.
