Review by Charles (posted on 27-Sep-2007)

This film has its moments. "Going over to a construction site to skateboard" is just one of 'em. Of course Dullard is being sent by butchers into Chinatown (San Francisco) to collect the bill. As a parody, I thought 'Porklips Now' was better than 'Hardware Wars' (You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll kiss $3 goodbye) and 'Closet Cases of the Nerd Kind' in which 3.1416 means a pie in the face. You decide - watch all three! LOL

Am I the only person that has seen this movie? Back in 1984, I rented a video called "Hardware Wars and other Film Farces." It has the title, "Hardware Wars" which was also directed by Ernie Fosselius, "Closet Cases of the Nerd Kind", a farce of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". And it had "Porklips Now", a crazy parody of Appocalypse Now. It was tacky, funny at times, but very slow. The best part was probably when "Dullard" is talking to "Fred Mertz". I won't spoil it for you if you manage to find this. I have been searching for the above named movie with no luck. Even on Ebay.

From the parody of The Door's the End, to the disco version of Flight of the Valkrie, it has it's moments.
