This film is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen. I remember seeing this years ago just loving Anthony Michael Hall's performance. If you love him now in the Sci-Fi Drama TV series The Dead Zone, or you loved him in his role as Whitey Ford in 61*, or you were blown away by his performance in Exit in Red..NOW is the time for you to see a true dramatic talent like AMH be completely GOOFY!
This man has mastered comedy just as much as drama. If you loved his jazz club scene in Weird Science ( you remember the one.."Hey Fats, man..let me tell you my story, man" ), or the scene from Sixteen Candles where he had the prom queen drunk in the backseat of the car, then you will LOVE this movie. Michael Hall just keeps getting better with age. His performance in this film is delightful! The gnome is so adorable and believe it or not the two make great costars!
Sure this movie isn't a classic like Science, the Club and Candles, but it's a great film to see Anthony Michael Hall as he makes that transition from child actor to leading man. This is that in between film where he is evolving as an actor and really coming into his craft.
Plus you can't help but love ridiculous goofy comedies like this!
" I'm sitting here handcuffed in a patty wagon about to be charged with first degree murder, Gnorm, because you had to go doom an entire race for an elf chick named Rena?! "
This movie didn't win any awards, but as corny as it may sound it will win your heart! Corny, cheesy thing to be said, I know.. but I love this film! And Gnorm is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen...next to AMH that is.. :)

This is perhaps the worst film ever made. It boggles the mind to ponder the fact that money, time and effort went into producing this utter monstrosity. It is worth seeing if only to help one understand the true meaning of the word "horrific." It also features the most tasteless chase scene in cinematic history. See it, abhor it, and cherish the fact that you will never again experience any film quite so abyssmal.
