Storyline

In this unearthed lost movie from 1990 that the studio deemed too terrible to release, a Vietnam veteran Sal Bando (Kevin Sorbo), tortured by his past as a pool boy, returns home to Van Nuys, California, and a country he doesn't recognize, in which it seems only Mexicans run pool-cleaning companies. Bando sets off on a brutal mission to reclaim his "rightful" vocation and enact revenge on the man (Danny Trejo) who killed his wife and son. Written by Anonymous

brilliant effort at sarcasm and satire and insult jokes
13 April 2013 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

i laughed & laffed at this screwball comedy! how anyone can be offended by this nutty movie is beyond me.

right from the start you know this is a budget movie with actors doing their thing in front of the camera and doing it in a 'carefree' attitude. that's what makes this film so brilliant and just fun to watch. the actors are just doing what they choose without concern with 'acting'!!!

Saint James St. James (Saint James Street James) is the narrator that keeps the goofy stuff in motion and takes over the action in the end. the ricocheting bullet is worth the whole hour and a half of laffs.

rent it and get happy with laughter!
