Saturday Trivia

TV Movie: The Curse of King Tut's Tomb (
There's been quite a bit of hype on various sites about this TV movie, of which the above site is just one example, including an interview with the movie's star: "On Saturday at 8 pm/ET, Hallmark Channel sends onetime Starship Trooper Casper Van Dien to contend with The Curse of King Tut's Tomb, as his maverick archeaologist races a ruthless rival (The Mummy's Jonathan Hyde) to find the boy king's untold riches. Sound a bit familiar? spoke with Van Dien about his bid to prove he's Harrison Ford-tough, his famous lineage and the secrets to a successful royal romance."
At least one reviewer (Linda Stasi on the New York Post) doesn't much like it:
She describes it as "an original TV movie so bad, it will keep you in more stitches than a mummy's shroud. It's all the brainchild/fault of the Hallmark Halmis - the father/son team who produce these bazillion-dollar, disastrously lousy movies over and over. This time, however, they've beaten their own record and made possibly the worst TV movie since Tut walked the earth. Let's start with the obvious: There is not one grain of truth in the whole "adventure" yarn. Not one." I am now absolutely dying to see it!!
