Coming of the space, the prince Flick (Pedro Aguinaga) asks the Trapalhões (The Dabblers) for help to free the planet where lives of the domain of evil Zuco. He offers a reward, it accepts for the four friends, that embark in a spaceship by a called hairy monster Bonzo. In the planet, they use tricks and they win Zuco, but they don't get to save Princess Myrna's life, that had been kidnapped by the thief. She should be substituted in the throne by Loya, exactly the girlfriend of Didi, that knew during the adventure in the strange planet. Already in the Earth, os Trapalhões (The Dabblers) think that everything didn't pass of a dream, but they are convinced otherwise when they come across a jeep full of bars of gold.

What if the Three Stooges were the heroes of Star Wars ???
19 January 2005 | by CelluloidRehabSee all my reviews

This is a Brazilian movie, starring the Three Stooges of Brazil : The Tramps. The movie starts out with a car chase in which the Tramps are being followed. After the car chase the Tramps encounter Prince Flik (an alien) who is locked in an epic battle with Zuco, over a Brain computer. Flik is there to recruit people to help him (and the princess) to fight Zuco.

This movie was intended for children or for brain-fried drug users, since it makes very little sense. It is very much a Star Wars clone, except without any logic and obviously meant as a comedy. Most of the characters have Star Wars counterparts. Prince Flik is obviously a Luke-lookalike and Zuco is Darth Vader, except wearing more gold and having various motor skill problems. There is also a Chewbacca lookalike, lots of Tuskins (who can forget the Tuskin fight scene ... that will NOT end ???!!!), and Princess Leia. The director uses slow motion shots, reverse shots, fast forwards, dumb sound effects (hitting sounds included "boink", "dink", and "ping") and triple takes to "move" the story along. I have not even mentioned the slow-motion fight scenes, complete with boxes full of drop-kicks (provided by the drop kick champion, William Shatner). The music sounds like a 70's disco night in Cairo, Egypt.

The main problem with this movie is the length. It is an 88 minute long movie. There are scenes that seem to go on forever with little to no resolution. One such scene is the "Tuskin" village fight/kidnapping. Another would be the trip to the "space disco" (Mos Eisley). The scene is at least 10 minutes long, in which the aliens do the alien "disco". The alien disco would be like two zombies trying to dance. The Tramps then proceed to monopolize the dance floor, by doing the human disco. This then all turns into a bar fight, complete with drop kicks, slow motion, triple takes and the annoying "sound" effects. I am not even going to get into where the Tramp's female companions came from and what they're suppose to be doing. Most of the fight scenes consist of Dolemite-like hand to hand fighting or bonking someone on the head with a stick (there also some Stooge-like slapping). One of the strangest scenes has to be Didi's purchase of arms from an arms dealer. During the random scene (at the space disco) he shoots 5 aliens and a vehicle, all to test the weapons. When his attempt to pay for the weapons with human money is rejected, he then shoots the arms dealer.

This movie is slightly better than Turkish Star Wars, but not by much. They both drag and have nonsensical plots. For what its worth, enjoy this movie with others and with plenty of medicine nearby.
