Some films are bad enough to be funny, this one is worse
Sometimes a film is so badly made, that in itself is a source of entertainment. Hope on such fun made me watch this movie. I was bitterly disappointed. Not because of the clumsy acting, the rickety cutting, or the lack of anything posing as a storyline or plot. I expected all these flaws and was prepared to enjoy the rubbish. What put me off, was the appearance of Gene Kelly, a performer of some standing in my opinion, in this rag. What baffled me, was the lead caricature mister knievel himself. I admit having had dreams with me in grand roles, saving the world, democracy, freedom and the girl, but to have this wet dream put on celluloid would not arise in a similar dream. The man has an ego like Jupiter (God and/or Planet) and the sense of relativity of an amoebe. And his cinematografical skills equal the latter. Do not watch this movie, even when you want to see it for its lack of quality. This one is too bad for even such entertainment.
