Spoof based (loosely) on an old Indonesian film, which has had the old foreign soundtrack removed and replaced by an over-dubbed English track. Central character is a female wrestler who has decided that she no longer wants to wrestle, but whose mother (a former wrestler herself) wants her to keep wrestling to make money so her brother can have the operation (his seminal vessels run to his skull, rather than his groin, which purportedly will cause his head to explode if he gets too excited). During the course of her story (in which a number of brawls ensue), she is befriended by a Elvis-impersonating martial artist. Written by Scott Bales <sbales@cisco.com>

User Reviews

Way smarter writing than I expected
6 January 2019 | by british1500See all my reviews

Two women are wrestling, each pronouncing "Uganda" differently, and arguing over it. This is like watching a Rifftrax or MST3K episode with the original dialog completely removed.

Being a Troma film, I had little to no expectations on this. But this time, none of the filming was done by them. So no sped-up Benny Hill-style footage, a bunch of people piling into an apartment and having a party, just an Indonesian action film.

This film pleasantly surprised me. The comedy writing is REALLY sharply written, reminding me all too many of the jokes of MST3K or Rifftrax. "Surf Nazis Must Die" was mentioned, so the original film was in 1982, but this was re-dubbed after 1987.

The audible magic doesn't end there. In one scene, a woman is walking around in an office, but with added sloshing sounds to give the illusion that there's standing water. Electromechanical pinball sounds are playing for no reason during a match.

Just watch it. It's a pleasant surprise from Troma.
