I was an unpaid extra in this film and after 3 hours of Busey forgetting his lines he finally got it right and we got to go home. For my "work" I did get to go to the premier...and every one in the audience knew this film was *crap*. Heck, Julie Andrews could have done a better least she could have put 3 sentences together coherently. The edits are ham-fisted, and the stock footage doesn't match the current footage. The Continuity person must have had a blind seeing-eye dog. All in all I would put this film right up there with "Attack of the Killer Tomatos" except that this film isn't nearly as funny or as campy...witness the near zero commercial demand. If you are a video masochist: find this film and watch it often. The only problem is that because it is such tripe you will have a rather difficult time buying it.
