The role of Tabonga the gorilla appears in the closing credits as actor "Tabonga" playing "Himself" as if it were an animal actor, even though it's quite obvious that Tabonga is an uncredited human actor in a gorilla costume. See more »
Schlock director Fred Olen Ray must hold the world record for movies with "bikini" in the title. He specializes in these extra soft softcore cable-porn movies. Vietnamese cutie Christine Nguyen is Tarzeena, a lost girl living on Kong Island. She wears a tiny tan bikini and has a pet gorilla (the ape costume is actually quite good). A safari led by Fabio look-alike Evan Stone searches for her. (He and co-star Nicole Sheridan were also in Fred Olen Ray's "Teenage Cavegirl" which is also quite amusing.) This has lots of nudity, some very hot girls, and frequent simulated, non-explicit sex scenes (more like an NC-17 film).
I can't recommend this for fear of bursting into flames and going straight to hell, but it was fairly enjoyable on a non-think level due to much tongue-in-cheek humor. A cliché travel montage of planes, boats, and maps made me laugh as they edited in clips of a cable car, a dune buggy, a locomotive train, and the space shuttle. The simple story, which includes a mad scientist, is reminiscent of an old '40s Republic serial. The fact that this movie does not take itself seriously and has a few funny moments (such as references to '60s TV shows) places it a cut above in the humble category of cheap adult cable movies. Bloopers during the end credits are also funny. However, it is not in the same league with a "real" B-movie or porn feature. This provides some light entertainment and some impressive skin, that's all.
