half a success
27 August 1999 | by Reelboy-2See all my reviews

The wackiness of this movie will grasp your attention initially. However, the director treated the subject matter too seriously, spoiling this modern farce. The acting performances of the young boy hero and his aunt, who believes he has biblical powers, are not stellar. The supporting cast of flamboyant characters does a good job. All in all, lets say that the dramatic undertones are uneffective in what should have simply been a demented comedy.
