Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member I never Thought I would ever use the term" has no redeeming value" until now. I had to force myself to watch this 1980's "stinker" all the way to the end. I always look for the campy or zircon in the ruff, but this movie was just plain painful.
