Well, this was hard to get through. I remembered Clark Brandon from the 80s (playing Jo's boyfriend on Facts of Life and Bobby's friend in 'My Tutor') and when I saw that he also wrote the screenplay I was intrigued. For about ten minutes. I was sitting there with a friend and basically talked out the dialogue it was so obvious.

The whole premise of the film is that a struggling burger joint start-up comes up with a way to increase business, by spiking their special sauce with an aphrodisiac. Then the FDA comes in and they get in trouble. This could have been interesting, seeing it today in 2012 because it is known that fast food companies put addictive chemicals in their food and there could have been a deeper or more political moral of the story.

But nope, this film was all over the map, obvious, sometimes embarrassingly stupid (I was never a fan of Jim Varney and he wasn't HORRID in this, but still not funny to me in any way).

I wouldn't recommend this, but I did get through it. There are some films that I can't even get through, and this was close.
