Hilarious laugh riot!, 12 May 1999

I saw this cheesy marvel of a flick under the "Something Weird 2000" filmfestival under the name "Bowanga! Bowanga!" with an introduction in person by The Mighty Monarch of Exploitation, David Friedman (Bloodfeast, 2000 Maniacs, Erotic Adventures Of Zorro etc.). Three white bozos are lookin' for the lost tribe of "the white sirens" in "Africa". Our merry trio witness lots of footage from several mondo jungleflicks: Tigers, elephants and even a moose!?! Finally they find the amazon tribe which captures the men. The tribeleader keeps the strongest man for breedin'(!) and the rest are to be sacrificed to the almighty sungod. But the other "sirens" revolt and our trio makes an narrow escape. The End. All the sirens are wearing zebra stribed bikinis, panties with matching high heels! They all learn English pretty fast and with different accents! Fans of "Wild Women Of Wongo" and "Cat Women Of The Moon" should check out this wonderful wacky junglegirl epic which is definitely pre-PC Hollywood.
