Storyline

Traxx has battled his way through El Salvador, the Middle East and Nicaragua, spitting lead with two-handed good grace. He decides to retire to a life of baking designer cookies. Running out of dough to buy more dough, he hires himself as a "Town Tamer" and begins cleaning up Hadleyville, Texas, telling the lowlife street scum, "You got three choices. Be good, be gone, or be dead." Like all bacteria, the scum are resistant: crime boss Aldo Palucci (Robert Davi) brings in the dreaded Guzik brothers to rid the town of the town tamer, setting the stage for a showdown in the streets.

Quotes

Commissioner R.B. Davis: As police officers, we hold to a higher standard to what we deal with. You're out of the jungle, Traxx! This is civilization, or can't you tell the difference?
Traxx: It didn't look much different to me.
Commissioner R.B. Davis: Let me tell you something, Traxx. This is the 80s! Suspects and victims have the same rights! Even if they do shoot and kill an old lady and a puppy!
Traxx: Well... I'd like to hear that from puppy's family.

Verrrrrry Funny, classic cookie comedy!
12 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is very funny, although it is currently our of print. If you desire a cheesy 1980's film that puts a mercenary into the competitive cookie business...this is your film. Shadoe is hilarious! Precilla Barnes is also very good as the mayor of the town that Shadoe Stevens tries to "tame" in order to fund his cookie business. The only problem is that he can not cook! This film is classic overdone male machismo, wrapped up in cookie dough. Yes, it is predictable, but very funny nonetheless. As far as I know, this is the only film where Shadoe Stevens is the star. He became famous for doing the voice tracks and announcements for the original Hollywood Squares.
