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

Written in 10 days, based on an idea writers John Platt
& Roy Langsdon
came up with in the car on the drive to producer Menahem Golan
's office. The script was commisioned in December of 1989, was in production by the end of January, 1990, and hit theaters on March 17th that same year, all in an attempt to beat rival lamdada flick Lambada
(1990) to theaters. Both films were eventually released on the very same day! See more
At one point, Nisa calls the villain "matador". It is intended as an insult. But "matador" is a bullfighting term. What Nisa really means to say is "asesino" (murderer). See more
