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

it's just not funny
25 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the dumbest spoofs ever made.

Like Kung Pao, it splices together scenes from older (also crappy) movies.

It also adds a dubbed soundtrack rivaling that of an 10-year-old with a $20 tape recorder.

I'm not sure what possessed anyone to make this spoof.

The smelly poop joke that occurs throughout the movie is especially painful to endure.

It wasn't funny the first time we see it.

It becomes even less so, each subsequent time. By the 15th time, I felt like hurting someone.

Unless you like spending your time watching movies that were so poorly done they elicit an physical reaction, steer clear.

Why?? Why did they allow this movie to be made? Why!?!?
