Native guides: Kong kong kong kong kong kong! Kong kong kong kong kong kong!
Ray Fay: They keep saying "Kong kong kong kong kong kong".
Luce Habit: Yes, that's true.
Ray Fay: Well, do you think this has some underlying meaning or symbolism or social significance?
Luce Habit: Perhaps it's a secret code.
Ray Fay: Maybe it's another language.
Luce Habit: Aha, you are clever. But since I speak all native languages and they speak Unga Bunga, a language popular in many old movies and the only language spoken on Lazanga where they do the Konga, I can safely say that "Kong kong ...

Better than the 1976 remake of King Kong
25 April 2005 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

This gender bent spoof of King Kong was hard to see until the advent of DVD. Thats a shame because its better than the film that producers of the remake of King Kong unleashed on the unsuspecting world. Having not pretense at being anything other than a send up this film lets it all go in what is mostly a good but really dumb comedy. The problem with the film is that even at a running time of around 80 minutes this movie is way too long. There is only enough material to sustain a 20 minute short and its stretched to fill a feature. The lack of material leaves many dead spots and allows for some really bad material to creep in. Had this been shorter it would have been better (say as a sketch on SNL), but as it stands now its a very interesting side note to the debacle that was the 1976 King Kong remake.
