Want a piece of Hollywood Hasselhoff history?

Want a piece of Hollywood Hasselhoff history? Then, you might want to pay Wal-Mart a visit.

Here's what to look for. A specialized drop bin full of DVD's for Father's Day. Marked about $2.89 or something like that. The video? 'The Decade you were born. The 80s.' On it in the specials section is David's movie, 'Bail Out.' It's such an obscure movie that you might not easily find it elsewhere.

I watched this movie a few weeks ago, actually. It's very cheesy and full of bad acting but you cannot argue for the super cheap price that you pay. It's basically a tv movie and nobody should expect anything spectacular.

Well, cable TV for it's day.

But, it's weird to see this movie in a KR-type light.

Imagine if Michael Long in another time line hadn't been shot down in the desert. Instead, he retired from being a police officer and moved to So. Cal. to enter the line of bounty hunter, instead. You can kind of see the same formula being used. Weirder yet...Hasselhoff works well, surrounded by bad or good acting. It's like he IS the gray zone between good and bad.
