Call me a dreamer, but I would seriously like a Movie Minute devoted to the Peaches breaking down an episode of Big Sausage Pizza.
Kudos for giving this festering cyst tarted up as a movie the pulping it deserves. Eye-candy-predicated mush seldom stunk so hard.
The trailer alone was already much too much for my bile-ducts to bear … just one long facepalm of light & noise. You have my sincere sympathy for choosing to undergo full exposure.
I would just like to point out that Terry Kiser (Bernie in Weekend at Bernie’s) is NOT dead. I know this because my mother dated him in high school, so I have followed his career since he played Vic Hitler the narcoleptic comic in TV’s Hill Street Blues. Terry is 74, alive and well, and apparently still working!
