Do not watch this movie under any circumstances
28 January 1999 | by Gort-7See all my reviews

A complete waste of celluloid. Literally all the funny parts of this movie were in the trailer. Too stupid and pointless for even MST3K to tackle. One can only hope that all extant copies, plus the negatives, have been destroyed.
