Slow-motion Cock Fights!
6 October 1999 | by (Fluid Lake, Indiana) – See all my reviews

You can't get much better than roosters fighting in extreme slo-mo while a dwarf (Tommy Maden as Chicken) looks on in eager anticipation. Such was the grand climax of this film! It's been years since I saw it but as I recall, the dialog was lame, the acting stiff, and character development non-existent. For all this, though, there was a laudable moment near the end where the roosters are fighting (again, in slow motion) with the typical early 80s sound effects. In a precursor to "Babe", the roosters are actually talking to each other as they fight. The lines I remember are "There's hippos in the kitchen" and "Wax the cat, Joel". I KID YOU NOT! And then there was this flashback sequence concerning the "conception" of Chicken, the dwarf, where his mother is attacked by a flock of roosters while browsing a selection of pigeon books in a local adult book store.
