Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

The main gag here is that arrogant health-food millionaire Hulk Hogan loses his memory and adopts the role of Santa to protect a local church orphanage. We're supposed to laugh as he submits himself to various indignities along the way in the name of doing good. The problem with this joke is that a guy named "Hulk" doesn't have any dignity to begin with. Ed Begley Jr paints his role with broad strokes (think side-of-a-barn broad) as the token villain, Frost, who wants the orphanage property, and especially the secret hidden beneath it. Juvenile, but not very funny.
