Trivia

The role of the Bear Creature was actually played by a costume designer named Lucas Gunn. He worked on several aspects of the costumes used in the movie, but this was his very first creature design, as such he wanted to play the extra role of the creature (a very short role to be sure). After the movie released the part in which the bear creatures head is toyed with by the twins, became a fan favorite spawning several common references in internet memes etc. See more »

This movie is every little boys dream...
20 March 2006 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Yes, I loved this movie when I was a kid. When I was growing up I saw this movie so many times that my dad had to buy another VHS copy because the old copy had worn out.

My family received a VHS copy of this movie when we purchased a new VHS system. At first, my mom wasn't sure that this was an appropriate movie for a 10 year old but because we had just bought a new VHS system she let me watch it.

Like I said, this movie is every little boys dream… The movie contains a terrific setting, big muscled barbarians, beautiful topless women, big bad monsters and jokes you'll only get when you get older. So, a couple of days ago I inserted the video and watched the movie again after a long time. At first, I was bored, then started thinking about how much I loved this movie when I was kid, and continued watching. Yeah, the experience wasn't as great as I remembered… The acting is pretty bad, the storyline is pretty bad, the jokes weren't funny anymore, but the women were still pretty. Yes, I've grown up. Even though the movie experience has changed for me, I still think it's worth 7 stars. For the good old times you know…
