Ruled by the evil Satoris, an ancient cult of Canadian wrestlers, the Ziox, are bent on world domination. Instrumental to their plan is a map to the ancient Ziox cult idol, recently discovered by a young boy, Troy. When the Ziox invade his home to recover the map, he flees and ends up in the bed of a passing pickup truck, driven by Rowsdower. Rowsdower and Troy become friends, and together search for the lost idol before the Ziox can claim it and take over the world. Written by Leo L. Schwab <ewhac@best.com>

Shortly after Troy jumps into Rowsdower's truck, there' a shot of it heading down a gravel road. The left driver's side headlight (of a total of four) is missing. In the next shot, as the truck pulls to a stop in a field, all headlights are intact. See more »

Quest for the Lost City: The Final Sacrifice: Episode V: Canada Strikes Back
11 July 2002 | by perniSee all my reviews

This is not the funniest film that Mike, Tom, and Crow have ever bashed, but it does have its merits. For one, let's look at the plot, or, more specifically, the lack thereof. Troy is this twiggy, pasty kid with bad teeth who is obsessed with solving the mystery of his dead father (instead of, like, girls or getting some fashion sense). One day he finds this map written on a crusty napkin. Now the map's pretty darn funny to look at just because it looks like a seventh grade kid drew it in Art Class. Anyway, this map leads to an idol, as we learn much, much later, and if someone destroys it a lost city made of gold will rise up out of the ground and this deep-throated villain won't be able to get his army of invincible warriors. Or some Swords and Sorcery, Dungeons and Dragons type crap like that. Honestly, the whole fantasy element is lost when you film your movie in Canada. Troy gets some help from a hockey hair sporting drunk named Zap Rowsdower. Great name, buddy. No, really, I love it. The first half of the movie is basically Troy doing nothing around his house. He's puttering around, as Crow puts it. He eats some pizza, looks at a picture of dear ol' dad, calls information, looks at his Aunt's romance novels, gets a wedgie...you know, the kind of stuff geeks normally do on a Saturday. Then we get shots of Zap trying to fix his truck. This is a theme that shows up again and again in this movie for reasons I cannot comprehend. Literally 1/3 of this thing is Rowsdower looking at his hollowed out engine. Then we get a cult whose members wear black tank tops and ski masks while showing off their hour glass tatoos, some really cheap sets, you know the drill. The riffing is pretty good in this episode, considering the trio did not have much to work with, so check it out.
