I've since hit YouTube to watch other trailers, and they are all as cheesy as can be so I suppose the movie probably was, too. It couldn't have been that bad, with it's PG rating - and I NEVER saw it available for rent anywhere in later years. I'd like to see it again. And I may even try to hunt the remake down one of these days, as the synopsis sounds a bit different than the original.
