The best bad movie EVER!
4 March 2008 | by misterneizgeitSee all my reviews

The most convoluted, peculiar beach movie ever made, Kato Kaelin's first movie, and one of the first films dubbed by Mystery Science Theater 3000: all these should give you some idea of how wonderfully bad this movie is. The premise involves Kato, a beach bum who has run (unknowingly) afoul of the pimp Big Daddy, meeting both the girl of his dreams, her nerdy brother, and a Japanese immigrant Saki trying to learn how to hit on women and dodge a guitar-playing beach bully. Nerdy brother invents a love potion that turns women into seductive fawning love-slaves, and Kato and Saki plan to get rich by selling it on the beach, exhibiting its properties first-hand. Unfortunately, Big Daddy gets this love potion and with beach bully's help kidnaps its creator, using its pheromones to lure all the women on the beach to him to become prostitutes for him, including Kato's love interest. Add into the fact that the movie includes sound effects, nudity in the opening credits, and a bikini-clad trio of girls providing a singing narrative, and you will agree that this movie must be watched just as an experiment to see how atrocious a film can be without spontaneously combusting.
