Kajagoogoo Out for Revenge
12 November 2002 | by helfeleatherSee all my reviews

A preppy brother and sister very stupidly play a prank on a gang of heavies who have been making their life hell. Obviously they didn't take the gang seriously because of their Kajagoogoo hairdos. What they forgot was that this is the eighties, and even violent sadists had silly hair.

Naturally, the gang seek their revenge. The leader Silk wants to maim Preppy Boy, and the tough but attractive Crip wants to have his way with the sister. They're aided by a the obese Melvin, who's literally attached to his motorbike, and the stereotypical sex-crazed Latino.

The only person on the goody-goodies' side is the bloke who played Willis In Different Strokes. They don't have a chance
