gave me the level of entertainment I expected of it, witty dialog
30 January 2007 | by (high'n the SW desert) – See all my reviews

The DVD box that I have has a blurb about the worlds worst gorilla suit, but that's easily out-done by Tarz's dumb wig. But the dumb wig and the ape suit do set the tone of this unlicensed literary character spoof!

It's director Hans Johnsons only film, while Tarz, Patrick Wright is a well known face, the wig disguise didn't work, from TV's Dukes of Hazzard show to film, several early Russ Meyer products. He worked regularly with Jane, Tally Cochrane. She had staring roles in Joe Sarno's Erotic Young Fanny Hill and Sassy Sue. Georgina Spelvin must have been signed for her name, ha, as her role was rather sedate for a well known porn star in mid-career. Boy is anything but, appearing to be in mid 20's.

Being a long time fan of rumble in the jungle films, I had to give it a swing and it gave me the level of entertainment I expected. Witty dialog, corny puns and semi-interesting T & A. And sometimes the scenes actuality seem to be in a jungle, of sorts!
