Review by anonymous (posted on 19-Nov-2006)

One star only because this is the kind of movie that is so campy and bad it is actually entertaining sometimes to watch plus that coupled with Teri Hatcher carries the movie with her crazy panicking, great looks, and underrated comedic acting (she actually is funnier than Andrew Dice Clay in this movie.) Movie revolves around Teri Hatcher (a famous model), her sister (a female Indian Jones type archeologist,adventurer) and the DiceMan himself, a bouncer with "BrainSmasher" englossed proudly on the back of his leather jacket. The Chinese monks are looking for the red lotus, a flower that can grow even in the most harsh winters and has a magical power when eaten that can give you rule of the world. Teri Hatcher's character's sister has it and soon Teri Hatcher's character (can't remember name) becomes envolved along with the hapless but fighting formidable bouncer, Ed, played by Dice Clay. If I paid $10.00 to see this in the movie theater I would have yelled bloody murder and demanded a refund or thrown popcorn at the screen or at least dropped in on the aisles. (yes, I am that mature). But, since it was on free broadcast TV it was worth watching, and this is the key word- one time- and only one time in a lifetime. So, if you aren't looking for an Academy Award type movie and just want to watch a movie knowing it will be fun and dumb, very dumb. Watch this movie. And where has Andrew Dice Clay once huge in the 80's to maybe early 90's, I'm guessing gone. Teri Hatcher is still big on the big TV rating evening soap-drama Desperate Housewives. And at last-is there a more beautiful woman ever than Teri Hatcher in her prime years of about 25-30 when this movie was filmed. Don't get me wrong, Teri is still one of the most beautiful women in the world and has aged very, very slowly. And gee, if Andrew Dice Clay can get 500 people (total) to put together this cheesey movie, there still is hope in Hollywood for a regular schmuck like me. Peace and long live Hatcher (-: Rod O'Connor
