Audience Reviews for A Tiger's Tale

Unbelievable romantic combination of C. Thomas Howell and Ann-Margret.

Dean McKenna

Super Reviewer

I loved this crazy movie. C. Thomas Howell is lovable as Bubber in this whacky comedy. A tale of how a young highschooler falls in love with an elder woman and the chemistry they both have with each other. One of my favorite comedies.
