A dreadfully bad comedy movie...from '89!
27 October 1998 | by emmSee all my reviews

Reviving B-movies is one thing, and unfortunately, MUTANT ON THE BOUNTY doesn't fit well in the modern, contemporary year of 1989 when movies were made to really attract viewers' tastes. This would have been a fairly decent film thirty years prior to this release, without the lame jokes and terrible acting performances. Even the sets are poorly designed, too! Who on Earth would let the actors wear their original garments in a spaceship anyway? It's also unbelievable that I counted 13 "F" words spoken, making it the highest number for a movie rated PG-13 by the M.P.A.A.! Here is yet another lame-brained comedy that gets tossed out of the window. Ranks right up there with LEONARD, PART 6!
