Storyline

It's 1969 and Sylvester Stallone is Jim Ramroc, a U.S. Army Private who, runs away from the Vietnam war to avoid getting shot. With the FBI, the CIA, the IRS and the District of Columbia Record & Tape Club all hot on his heels, Ramroc tunes in, turns on and drops out. He changes his his name to Rainbo and joins a group of subversive, radical, dirty commie hippies. Together they concoct a fiendish plot to overthrow the United States; a diabolical scheme involving bombings, phone sex, platform shoes, Richard Nixon, radioactive dog poop, and World War III. Can this devious plan be thwarted? Can our freedom-loving democracy be preserved? Can you make any sense whatsoever out of this hilarious combination of outtakes, new picture and sound, and a Really Big Star? Find out in "A MAN CALLED...RAINBO." Written by Scott Altizer

VERY FUNNY
24 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is like a wacked out version of "What's Up, Tiger Lily." Stallone plays this stupid hippie who's trying to get this girl in bed and she keeps blowing him off. It's really hilarious. This is a great tape to have going on during a party.
