The '80s may have been a bad time for KISS, but they were even worse if you watched Gene Simmons try to act in a movie. Gene, stick to sticking your tongue out, please...

Yeah, Gene admitted that he didn't put his heart and soul into KISS during the 80s when he tried to break out into films. The constant line-up changes and the string of previous bad albums were not a good time for KISS back then.

I only a saw a few of Gene's films such as Tom Selleck's Runaway and Wanted Dead or Alive. I also saw his 3 episode stint on Third Watch.

I think Gene is good maybe for short minor characters or cameo spots in acting but, let's face it, he's no leading man.

Oh I totally agree - don't misunderstand me - I loved that movie as a kid! I think I saw it in the theater 3 times. I just think it's funny that this tiny, little, almost-completely-forgotten Disney movie had two future megastars. I still watch it, just to enjoy the one and only time that Thomas Ian Nicholas will ever get billed above Kate Winslet. I thought Daniel Craig was adorable in it, but it wouldn't surprise me to find out he's embarrassed by it. Look at his hair!

I didn't misunderstand anything. My dad took me to see this back when it came out and I didn't get into this one.

This is supposed to be a retooling of Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court right?

Oh yeah and pure lolz about Thomas Ian Nicholas

Yeah, very loosley based on Twain's novel. (For the record, the book is the only one by Mark Twain that I couldn't get into. Great premise - but it couldn't keep my attention).

I'm not calling this a great film, not at all - but I loved it as a kid. That's the only reason I remember it. And when Daniel Craig first landed the role of James Bond - how many people (besides me) went "Master Kane???"

The cast and fans of Star Wars either have a love-hate relationship or downright hatred for the 1978 television movie The Star Wars Holiday Special.

Though he had little involvement in its making (he allowed the special to be created with his characters) George Lucas says it was a mistake. He mentioned that if he had the time and a sledgehammer he would go around smashing every available copy of it.

Harrison Ford mentioned that he doesn't remember much about it and in his mind "it doesn't exist".

Other cast members hardly mention anything about it so it's pretty much understood nobody looks to fondly on this project.

After viewing it for the first time Chris Farley hated Beverly Hills Ninja (1997).

He felt that it dumbed down his physical humor skills to a tiring and foolish degree.

*His agent mentioned this on an A&E biography on him after he had passed away. Farley might not have mentioned he hated it in public but I mentioned it since it's within public knowledge that he didn't look to fondly on this project.

From what I've read, I think Farley himself was getting tired of being "the funny fat guy who falls down a lot." Of course, he'd built his reputation on slapstick, so it was a dual-edged sword.

Chris Farley was a talented guy. Sadly, like many great comedic actors, he had his demons and ultimately, they overtook him.

I watched this movie all the time back when it first came out. I saw it in the theater for a friend's birthday party. I ruined my VHS copy from watching it over and over.

I haven't seen this movie in years; I wonder if it's still in print. I still remember the cast; it had Sheridan from Desperate Housewives, Chris Rock, the guy from the Mortal Kombat films, and Will Sasso in a small role.

I think very few guys can pull off stupid humor and make it look funny. Chris Farley did it with this movie. I enjoyed it. Maybe now it's for the nostalgia factor but I liked this one.


Yeah, it was a shame about Farley's early death. I think he was actually the first celebrity death I had read about on AOL news back when we first got the internet.

Beverely Hills Ninja was my least favorite Chris Farley movie. I think it could be out on DVD.

I didn't say much. All I said was that it was over-the-top and a pure garbage fest.
