Storyline

Philo takes part in a bare knuckle fight - as he does - to make some more money than he can earn from his car repair business. He decides to retire from fighting, but when the Mafia come along and arrange another fight, he is pushed into it. A motorcycle gang and an orangutan called Clyde all add to the 'fun'.

Trivia

Just before the scene where the Black Widows are knocked out by Clyde's "right turn", Clint refers to Clyde as Meathead. This was the same name his character Harry Callahan referred to his dog in the fourth Dirty Harry movie, Sudden Impact (1983). See more »

Goofs

When Clyde is demolishing the Mercury, he is using both hands to hold up the front windshield. A crew member wearing an ape glove provided a third hand to help Clyde move the windshield. See more »

Quotes

Cholla, Black Widow Leader: Why me Lord? You made other men out of clay. Mine, you made out of shit.

No spoilers How do you rank this movie? Easy a 6.

Clint was a 2 in it. Cylde was a 10 in it. Adds up to 12 divide by 2 we get a 6.

Clint has never been a great actor. Thought Gran Tranino was his best job ever. He got shown up in this film by an Orangutan.

Clyde rules!!!!! So sad when I heard they where not the same Clydes in both of these 2 movies. This Clyde was tortured and killed by his trainer. We should have gotten the first Clyde to left turn him. See what its like to be abused.

Wish I had Clyde as a pet. That would be awesome
