The actors more eager to goof around in schlumpfy costumes on a low-budget lark than to play their trashy characters with the seriousness such farce requires.

A funny comedy for about 90 seconds. Then Bette Midler goes off a cliff.

USA Today

By Susan Wloszczyna
The bad-taste murder farce is just an excuse for a bunch of actors to go slumming and ride about in - ha, ha - Yugos.
