Clever and hilarious. Highly recommended. Four players do an amazing amount, particularly Man #1 and Man #2 who assume something like a hundred roles along the way. The low tech "special effects" parodies left us in stitches.

Very stylish and energetic production. Lots of fun! Great cast. The material is what it is (parody of the film), but did not go on too long.
