Trivia

The producers were plagued with financial difficulties and many of the crew members went unpaid. FX man David Allen was so apprehensive about working on the film that he insisted on being paid cash at the end of each day, but his fellow crew members weren't so lucky. After a series of long delays resulting in unpaid salaries, ten of the FX members decided to hold 8,000 feet of the film's effects sequences hostage until the producers forked over their wages.

Goofs

In one of the first scenes, a character clearly says, "Dr. Gordon, all of us here are aware of the total degragation that has overcome the masses." Obviously, he was meant to say "degradation." See more »

A hilarious sexy spoof of the original Flash Gordon series.
24 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

The title and genre belies the extraordinary production values that went into this film. Even the original 1 sheet (poster) exhibits the exceptional quality of a big studio effort; definitely suitable for framing. The concept is funny and the film is hilarious. The cast list alone will elicit a laugh. Any fan of the original serial will delight in the parallels and the irreverent treatment of this cultural icon. Naturally this refers to the original, uncut version.
