Aye Carumba!
23 June 1999 | by DanB-4See all my reviews

A wicked case of insomnia had me watching this movie on TV. Suffice to say that there would have been more entertainment value had I turned the TV off and watched nothing. Beyond bad from every angle. You don't expect much from a movie like this but this one fails to meet even the lowest standards. 1/2* out of ****.
