Better than expected...
24 April 2018 | by brianabanks-033See all my reviews

When I found out that the dude from the failed YouTube nunchuk video had a movie I was all too excited to watch! I'm glad I did! This movie was funny, the acting was respectable, there was a good story line, and I was entertained. Definitely worth a watch. Good B-movie fun!
