Uncommon Douchery: Erik Estrada Stars In Liberty Counsel Movie With Mat Staver

Uncommon Douchery: Erik Estrada Stars In Liberty Counsel Movie With Mat Staver | Daily Crew | Scoop.it

Based on the trailer, the film looks to be exactly as awful as one would expect a movie made by Liberty Counsel to be ... especially one that actually features Mat Staver in an acting role.

Bret's insight:

Bound to be a gigantic failure, just like Frothy Mix's magic candle nonsense.
