Title: Malibu Express
CinemaBandits Title:Thought Eradicated, 'Magnum PI Mustache Virus' Strikes Again!

CinemaBandits Review: Take a simple Texas country boy...give him some tiny jeans and an enormous mustache...throw in a plot that even the writer's of 'Murder, She Wrote' would've found stupefying and contrived...and you got yourself Malibu Express!

Think 'Knight Rider' meets 'Baywatch'... but not quite as clever.

Our simple Texas country boy/private eye, Cody, lives on a yacht that's painted to look like a train (because his dead mother love trains... oh, and his dead father used to street-race against hillbillies... no kidding). Cody's marina landlord hires him to find out who's selling American computers to the Soviet Union...

Yes, I said "marina landlord"!!!!

Somehow, he ends up at some woman named Lady Chamberlain's Bel-Air estate... as a guest?... or maybe a servant?... (you know what?... that's just plot, and if Malibu Express proves only one thing, it's that it certainly won't let plot get in the way)

Anyway, Cody has his own unique way of solving international espionage mysteries... although, for the life of me, I can't tell you what that is... because it seemed as though, throughout the entire movie, all Cody did was act like that creepy guy at a party trying way too hard to impress the ladies!

Throw in scantily clad girls, a Ferrari or two, and feathered hair-cuts for the entire cast and, well... Malibu Express isn't going to win any awards for film making, but at least it'll entertain 13 year old boys for an hour and a half!
