Weird Low Budget Comedy
31 August 2013 | by (North Hollyweird) – See all my reviews

I'd put this in the same bag as Roger Corman's "Creature From The Haunted Sea," a low-budget, quickie, unfunny comedy taking off on the then fairly recent takeover of Fidel Castro in Cuba. One thing though. Corman's film, as bad as it is, is a freaking masterpiece compared to this fail fest loaded with phony accents (at least we get both bad Spanish and French accents...and the Fidel Castro doppelganger sounds like he's channeling Bela Lugosi half the time), bad costumes and worse fake beards. Corman's film was written and shot in about three days with leftover money from another movie (and seems like it)...and it's not quite as bad as this one. (Gee, Jackie Coogan can add this to his pile of roles in horrible movies like Mesa of Lost Women.)

I agree that the title is totally pointless. There are a few pretty girls on board, but they are clearly there only for eye appeal and quite tangential to the silly plot, what there is of it.

If you must complete your collection of unfunny broad comedies based on Fidel Castro, then by all means, check this out. Otherwise, you can stay the blank away.

Saw it online, and it is most likely public domain, so it should be available for free if you are a masochist.
