Trivia

Vidmark Entertainment, the distributor of the movie on VHS in the US, organized a special sweepstakes to promote it. The short ad where the stars of the movie explain to viewers how they can enter the competition was put on the VHS tapes along with the movie. The so-called "Island Madness Sweepstakes" offered a grand prize of 12 vacation trips for 2 as well as 150 other free gifts including rollerblades and beach fun packs. The ad promised that those who win the grand prize will be flown for free to Hibiscus Beach Resort at Saint Croix, an island in the Caribbean Sea that belongs to the United States Virgin Islands, where they'd get to stay for 6 days and 5 nights. In order to enter the competition, the viewers were told to write down their names, phone numbers and addresses and send the information by snail mail to Vidmark Entertainment. On the other hand, the instructions on how to get the free rollerblades and beach fun packs were shown only at the very end of the movie to motivate the people to watch it all the way though.

What the &%*$ was this?
21 August 2000 | by SmileyGreg17See all my reviews

I've been a comedy fan for as long as i can remember, and this is most definately the WIERDEST comedy i've seen in my life (& this said I own over 150 comedies, and have seen thousands). I was going through the videos in a local store when it was selling them off and shutting down after 15 years (i found some juicy &*$! in there), and i bought this film on it's National Lampoon connection, but this wasn't anything like i expected, but it ended up being really intriguing. My first impression in watching this was... What was the writer smoking when he came up with this? Whatever it was it had to be strong. Other people have explained the plot (if you want to call it that) but i just have a few questions for whoever has seen or had anything to do with this film. What was up with the villain guy's voice, Corey Feldmans outfits or hair, the evil guys hideout, or, hmmm, any other aspect of this film? All of this said, a few jokes do hit a mark, and despite the, poor scripting, plot, camera work and acting, there are some quite pretty girls. Pity about the rest. Ironically, if you like comedies, this is worth a look, because you will remember it as an experience, and to be truly different to any comedy (at least to me) that i've seen before
