  1. I loved this review. It nicely gave info on just how bad this movie is, while still giving us some laughs, like “If at first you don’t succeed” and the “Beat up by a 12-year-old”

    As for the ending… I personally didn’t like it. Because I didn’t like 2001. Sure, you guys did a great job at giving it homage and making them look alike with your own twist, but… I haven’t read the book, and after seeing the movie once – it doesn’t explain anything, by the way – I don’t even want to. But, that’s just me.

    Great review, and good commentary on it too.

  2. It’s a good thing Rob didn’t want to see the film when it came out in 1987!

  3. The only good thing to come out of the film is the fake laugh

  4. I’ve read that this was the old British guy’s last film…sadly. The Dodger kid floats around various TV shows, no big roles, the bullies (except Tangerine) have all gone off the map (one of them was the director’s son), and Tangerine has actually made a name for herself on TV… in Mexico. This film was so bad, she had to leave the country for her career
