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

HILARIOUS!! Better each time you see it!!
29 November 1999 | by (California) – See all my reviews

If you're ready for a ton of dog poo jokes, and want to see early Sylvester Stallone outtakes bolted together in a really fun parody, then A Man Called...Rainbo is the perfect film to see. This movie made me laugh out loud again and again with its combination of outrageous physical gags and political barbs. The more you watch it, the more you will see...this is a surprisingly well-layered movie, worth seeing again and again!
