Storyline

It starts off seriously enough, with three thugs robbing an innocent young woman at night in the city, but then switches to Vin Saxon and Carolyn Brandt doing a goofy Elvis-like rock 'n roll number (very charming though). The next day the thugs are bored. Picking a name at random out of the phone book, they decide to terrorize Carolyn Brandt. After some campy dramatic scenes, she is kidnapped by the goons. They decide to ransom her. After receiving the ransom call, Vin Saxon and the good-natured, but not- to-bright gardener sit around despondent, wondering what to do. "There's only one thing to do!" exclaims Vin. The two rush off into the next room and become the costumed heroes Rat Pfink and Boo Boo... Written by Mick Taylor <alhazred@aracnet.com>

Trivia

When the kidnappers open the briefcase containing comics, the most visible magazine is Issue #2 (January 1965) of "Monster World," published by Warren and featuring the cast of The Munsters (1964) on the cover. Monster World was a sister publication of Famous Monsters. While Famous Monsters had a long distinguished career, folding only when Warren went under, Monster World didn't last as long. See more »

Goofs

The first girl is chased by a gang of two people. When they accost her, a third gang member appears. Much later, when one of them comes back with the ransom money for Cee Bee, the gang suddenly has 4 members. In the middle of the scene, it shrinks back to three again. See more »

Somewhat strange inept hilarity
28 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this infamous turkey a few days back while stone cold sober, which certainly isn't the right way to go with such a weird film. The first twenty minute or so I thought was actually quite good, unintentionally amusing but with a compellingly quirky sixties ambiance. For a while I thought I had started watching an obscure art-house film by accident, but then the ineptitude started to really kick in. My interest started to slip and then the movie changed completely in tone, into a totally bizarre Batman and Robin spoof. It went from unintentionally funny to deliberately flat out hilarious. I rarely laugh at comedies, being naturally quite a grump, but this had me in stitches. The characters (Kogar in particular) and dialogue were nuttier than a squirrel nest and the course of events so ludicrous as to be bordering on surrealism. For such a comparatively short film, this was bursting with invention and inept ingenuity, and anyone who likes Hollywoods unbelievably dire recent attempts at comedy should watch this, to see what humour is really about. Film buffs should check it out too, apparently Stanley Kubrick loved it.
