"Let's laugh at the blind!! how 60's can you get..."
1 stars

Will someone put a bullet in Leslie Neilson like.. now?

See funny man. He blind. He bump into things. Oh Magoo.

This is one of those films so misguided that there's really no target audience, no point to the project, simply a roll of the studio dice and a hope that it might do a Trial And Error and actually come out with a million or so profit and one less film on the deal of a contracted over-the-hill star.

That's the aim, and if you schmucks go out and rent the video you'll make their aim easier to achieve. Boycott this crap.

Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. Pass a rectal probe. It's more fun.
