ROBERT CULP NAKED
14 June 2002 | by wilburscottSee all my reviews

This was one poor film. While at times it does keep your attention, the muddled plot is too hard to follow. And besides, it is hard to focus on the plot of a film when Robert Culp is running around NAKED! NO human being should be subjected to such mental torture.
