My rating: **
My assessment (the first 101 words at least): I’m growing seriously tired of these stupid 80’s comedies. They have nothing to support them but their crappy characters and gags. Yes, Ogre is a fun character and basically the only reason this movie is getting all the way up to 2 stars. However, I feel that there’s so little to actually enjoy with this movie. I don’t know if watching all these movies has somehow made me a cinema snob, but I’m simply embarrassed to be caught watching these movies. Perhaps I’m out of the age range, and find it childish now, but this movie just feels worthless to me.
