Curiously enough plays like a 90-minute version of the old television show. That's not necessarily bad. Full Review
The story moves so slowly and obviously, you don't even need to be in the theater very much (or your living room when the video comes out) to follow it. Full Review
This is the kind of movie that isn't even worth renting when it comes out on video because, with the possible exception of Michael Lerner and Omar Epps dancing to show tunes, you've seen it all before.
