Joe Moss: Coffee? I LIKE coffee!

The director’s Beast of Yucca Flats was so bad it was good.  This later effort is just plain bad.

One has to work pretty hard to find the plot.  I think it goes something like this.  A married couple is running a sport skydiving business.  It is failing largely because fatalities keep it shut down while the FAA investigates.  For some reason not related to their physical attractiveness each of the spouses is hit on by outsiders whom they reject.  Acid does not react well with parachute material.

Harry Rowe: Suzy, you’re a broad. Get lost!

Unlike most ultra-low budget dreck this film has a cast of thousands.  Not a one of them can act.  I watched the Mystery Science Theater 3000 riff-track of the movie after seeing the film straight and it was an improvement.
