"I don't go bottomless."
6 August 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Stripper Margot Kidder goes to Mexico to meet her estranged father Burt Lancaster. First she meets American drifter Ted Danson, who shows movies to the locals from the back of his van. He takes her to meet her dad, who she learns is dying and wants to leave her with directions on how to find some money he buried from his bank robbing days. So Margot hooks up with Ted and these two crazy kids try to make it work while thinking about Papa's buried treasure.

Lancaster's not in the movie for very long but he hams it up while he's around. His daughter Joanna was one of the producers so it's entirely possible that's the only reason he did this. Margot Kidder is the main star and she's chewing scenery all over the place. Reportedly she and Lancaster did not get along. It's easy to see why as they are both trying to out-ham each other at every turn. That death scene is like something from a Saturday Night Live sketch. Ted Danson comes off as the most likable member of the cast but not enough to save even a single scene from the tediousness that envelops this entire movie. The pace is very slow and the movie is mostly boring, save for the moments of unintended comedy such as Kidder's impromptu dance routine in a cantina. Not something I would recommend. The last name of Lancaster's character might amuse Superman: The Movie fans who watched this for Kidder.
