Foxy filmmaker Liberty Jean and her movie company arrive at Wagatno Beach to film a torrid movie called "Say Cheese", going against the wishes of the puritanical Church of the Divine Light, leading all hell to break loose. The church's phony leader Bishop Wally plans to lead a holy war of the highly religious against the trashy film. That's when a bumbling gang of thugs are hired to sabotage the production whenever they can. How will the film crew get out of this one? Written by
In the 1980s, Canadian B movie producers made a number of comedies with the word "ball" in their titles ("Screwballs", "Goofballs", etc.), this movie being one of them. Besides using the word "ball" in their titles, all these comedies had another thing in common - they were really bad. It's a real mess, as if production had to go ahead without getting the script ready first. The various plots are slow and rambling - it takes about a third of the movie before everything is set up, and there are long portions of the movie where characters are offscreen for an incredibly long time. The comedy is also pretty lame, more often than not being incredibly soft instead of being more aggressive. The movie is so lacking in punch you can't get hostile towards it - you will just sit there with a completely puzzled look on you face. By the way, there is no academy of any kind to be found in the movie.
