A mind- numbingly awful motion picture that has a better chance of making a viewer physically ill than of provoking a genuine laugh.

When a film critic starts throwing popcorn at the movie screen, something has to be wrong.

Even the audience at the free promotional screening was hard-pressed to find many genuine laughs in this purportedly comic abomination.

The best gags pop up in the closing credits, which should tell you something about what precedes the finale.

The constant movie references didn't make me laugh, they made me want to see other movies. Better movies.

Clearly, Pat Proft was wearing too many hats, and both his writing and his directing suffered for it.

The only person who fares well here is York, and that's because his character is killed off just minutes into the picture.

The rest of the cast doesn't look like it's having nearly as much fun as Nielsen is, but they are all exceedingly game and that's all that matters in these movies.
