God, this movie had so much promise...
30 March 2000 | by Mykii Suicide PBFSee all my reviews

I rented this movie the other night and I was totally disappointed

I was hoping it would be a horror comedy (along the lines of Uncle Sam & Jack Frost), but it turned out to take itself too seriously

I hate movies which have a silly premise and goofy death scenes and STILL try and scare ya!

It has to be done right and The Catcher just wasn't

It was a very boring movie, with really rubbishy effects.

the only saving grace was the baseball bat up the butt scene (made me laugh)

and the fact that it starred the gorgeous Monique Parent

Avoid at all costs
