Not THAT bad considering the target audience
23 December 2001 | by JBoze313See all my reviews

Let's be honest, this is not a great movie...it's not a very good movie. There are a few laughs here and there, and, for the target audience (kids), it's not too bad. I'm not sure what network this movie was actually made for (I know I first heard of it when Fox took control of the Family Channel.)..so, it's clearly aimed at children. I watched it myself (I was probably 18 or 19 at the time?) and I enjoyed it somewhat. Overall it's lacking in humor, but there are some funny bits here and there. The premise itself is pretty funny, and could have worked with a good script. Bostwick's career never really went very far after Rocky Horror, I see...but he's enjoyable here.
