Another dreadfully dull Troma release that bypassed theatrical distribution and went straight to home video, this ambitious comedy with pretensions of social relevance opens as sullen teenager Paul (Adam Nathan) is kicked out by his shrewish mother and sent to live with his father, John

Reid (John Mackay), an executive at a cable station. Paul's girl friend, Donna Rose (Julie Hanlon), accompanies him. Dad gives them both low-paying jobs in the TV station's dingy supply room, and Paul is inspired to fake a terrorist attack there. Shot on 16mm in 1985 and screened for critics under

the title AMATEUR HOUR, this hopelessly dull and terribly unfunny comedy from director and cowriter Stanford Singer just drags on and on without any sense of pacing or dramatics. Nathan is just plain awful, and Hanlon isn't much better.
