Movie Summary
Seventy one year old Tony Curtis headlines this comedy drama as Jack Curtis, who played the title former superhero twenty five years before with his loyal sidekick Tadpole (Arye Gross) fought crimes in syndicated television series. Though the show is dead, Reptile Man remains popular on the promo circuit and so every day, Jack dons the foam rubbery costume as does Lewis, who plays Tadpole. Poor Lewis has been typecast and though, with Jacks help, constantly auditions with little success. It doesnt help that spot-light hogging Jack is verbally abusing Lewis. One day, Jack takes his role a little too seriously and in costume attempts to stop a convenience store robbery. While recovering in the hospital, Lewis, at the urging of Ellie his wife, steps up his attempts. Again he fails. Then one day he learns the reason why: apparently, jealous Jack has not been as helpful as he seemed. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
