YEE HAW!
15 February 1999 | by Evil AlSee all my reviews

Oh Golly, where can I begin?

This is state of the art mind boggling (and occasionally numbing) garbage with little if any purpose whatsoever.... I loved it! I had been hoping to catch this on HBO for monthes, and I got my chance about a week ago. And it was good.... oh it was so good!

I'd rank this up there with "Space Balls", if you love cheesy sci-fi with no meaning, real plot or storyline, and no real reason for being made, check this out....

I can't believe Roger Corman wasn't somehow involved....

****1/2 / ***** Keep on Rockin'
