grade 'B', but you should really view it!!!!!!
20 September 2002 | by toddhauserSee all my reviews

This movie, although a grade 'B, movie.. warrants viewing ... believe me, if you like MST3k videos, you'll like this one even without robotic comments. There's something about the honesty and simplicity of the actresses that makes it a very wholesome movie ... so watch it, or drop out!
