If u havnt seen this, watch it do ur self a favor. great move 22 out of 10. I think i was made somewhere in the mid 80s. the 56.com link only show like 48mins of the movie all 3 links are like that. google didnt work for me either. but guess what stagevu worked great 2 bad i got to wait 14324 hours for it to load. but for this movie its worth that wait!!!
