User Reviews: I suppose I was a little hard on this film. It entertains, indeed, but it’s filled with holes and inconsistencies. I suppose if you ignore the aforementioned "holes and inconsistencies" you could get a kick out of this.

Childish, ridiculous, at times funny… Goofy, filled with rotten acting (and rotten bananas), bad camera-work, bad colours…

It’s actually kind of nice to see a pretty well established director’s first film and realize it’s a total B flick.

I like the king kong reference. And the 2001. And the Beauty and the Beast (Cocteau would be proud… either that or roll over in his grave)
