It is so bad it is good.
1 August 2000 | by TMJohnsoSee all my reviews

The only reason I voted this movie so high was due to it's campy-ness. I don't know if camp was intended, but it was definitely there.

Lela Rochon was a trooper. She played the part as strait as possible. Every other character was so exageratted until it was funny. I don't recommend this one unless you are a fan of bad "B" movies. If you are, you will definitly enjoy this one.
