Trivia

Carlos Lombardi was inspired by a news report he read on a father searching for his missing son in the Brazilian state of Pará (an Amazonian area). After a clash of lands with a local indian tribe, his family was attacked by the natives and while he managed to escape with two of his sons, the youngest one was taken by the indians. Lombardi blended this idea, of course, with those of Edgar Rice Burroughs's "Tarzan" and Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book". See more »

You don't need to know the language...
24 August 2001 | by namdcSee all my reviews

"Uga Uga" is a blast of fun! It is High Camp at its best, and you don't need to know Portuguese or Spanish to appreciate the humor (all the (literally) half-naked men!). I have fun just trying to figure out why the characters are doing what they're doing. Why is the pretty girl dressed in a wedding gown, running after the cute guy in the glasses? Why is the Scientist running around with very little clothes on, and why does he appear to be psychic? All this and much more await you in "Uga Uga". Don't miss it!
