Goofs

When Eegah lopes from his desert cave into modern town civilization (to search for his new amour Roxy) he's fascinated / confused by the untouchable manikins behind supposedly unknown to him glass .. but as soon as moves on to cross nighttime's road, he quickly checks both ways, presumably to be assured it is clear of modern dangerous cars ... (well, he was almost run over by Roxy in the opening reel, so perhaps he just learns quickly!) See more »

Eegah! Eegah scores big with father/son duo.
10 January 2003 | by morocca8985See all my reviews

Eegah taught me a lot of things about life. It taught me how to love, it taught me how to hate, and it taught me how to paaaarrrrtttaaaaayyyy! If you love to get down and dance the night away, then have we got a movie for you! Never once, have I seen so many fantastic elements combined to create such a pristine film. The only word that can describe it is "Eegah!" After watching this movie several times, I finally realized the hidden message behind the word eegah. Eegah is an acronym, and goes as follows.

E-Ecstatic-my mood after watching this movie

E-Envisioned-this film captures everything a film should

G-Gay-this movie made me the happiest I've ever been in my life

A-Archie Hall Jr. and Sr.-that dynamic duo that just wouldn't quit making me smile

H-Hell-I'd go to Hell before giving up my copy of 'Eegah'
