Andy J. Forest,
Filmed during the Lambada dance craze (if there really ever was one), this film tries to have a social conscience. A princess (Laura Herring) in the Amazon rain forests tries to fight a conglomerate threatening the forests by going to Los Angeles. There she links up with a rich kid (Jeff James) who tells her that she must get on tv to succeed with her mission. Quick as a wink the two come up with the idea of winning a lambada dance contest that is getting tv attention. Sid Haig also co-stars as a witch doctor who accompanies the princess and provides some humor. Written by

Okay, granted that I saw this movie several years ago and I was much younger, but I remember it as being totally hilarious. No, it wasn't a film with much depth, the concept was really stupid, and it surely wasn't going to win any Oscars. But it was super funny, because it was just that ridiculous. Still to this day I can hum the theme song to the movie,(sad, I know)but it's an awesome memory.I recommend this movie to anyone that wants to laugh their but off for no reason. The Forbidden Dance is a movie that I hope to own, so I can look at it countless times and remember the sheer genius that went into making this great film:)
