Trivia

LUMPIA was originally created as a reunion movie for the neighborhood kids that had starred in Ginelsa's amateur superhero movies when they were younger. Little would they know that the movie would later gain a cult following through local college screenings and then screen at a real movie theatre as part of the Hawaii Internationl Film Festival.

Crazy Credits

The Lumpia Wrangler was Melanie Fontanilla. Her job was to twirl the oily egg roll over the green screen in all the FX shots. See more »

HILARIOUS
5 October 2003 | by Before_SunriseSee all my reviews

The film was professionally shot and edited but on a $1000 budget and with a home video camera. What do you expect, it's an independent film. Considering the budget and sources, the movie was very well put together. It was entertaining overall and gave some good laughs but it's not something I would urge one to see. If you have the $5 to spare and some time to pass, support the struggling indie filmmakers and watch this film. If you like ridiculous humor, like that of "The Naked Gun" and "Monty Python", then LUMPIA is strongly recommended.
