I've learned my lesson
10 August 2003 | by JoelDavidSee all my reviews

I'll never rent another Cesar Alejandro movie again. This was terrible, more so because it could have been passable if it had been written, directed or performed by someone else. Basically the idea alone might have been worthwhile in the hands of someone even semi-competent. Cesar Alejandro is laughably bad.

I thought this movie was a joke at first. It's like something they might have picked to do for MST3K. My friends saw it on the big screen and said it was hilarious. The audience was laughing and yelling at the screen. I wish now I had seen it in the theater so I could have laughed out loud with everybody else and not felt I'd wasted my money, having at least gotten a chuckle out of it. Run, don't walk, away from this one.
