CGiii Comment

Harrington's career was a strange affair...........not unlike this film.
 
A spoof (yes, spoof - it cannot be taken seriously) on Hansel & Gretel........unfortunately, the little girl who plays Gretel must have been the producer's daughter - the kid can't act. The rest of the cast don't do much better........preferring ham, demonstrating camp.
 
The writing is uninspired and the ending is as satisfying as a failed orgasm.
