Storyline

From the director of Revenge of the Nerds (1984) comes this outrageous sword and sandals spoof. Horny King Looney of Troy sends slacker general Awesomest Maximus to maintain peace with rival King Erotic of Greece. But when Prince Orlando, who's more into fashion than fighting, steals the King's wife Ellen to be his BFF, it's war. Written by Anonymous

Juvenile and Crude, But Has a Few Okay Parts, I Guess
15 March 2012 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

What can I say about this film? It is crude, juvenile, features countless topless women... it makes fun of homosexuals, women, Blacks, Jews, the mentally handicapped... the humor revolves around male genitalia constantly... It is as politically incorrect as you can probably get these days.

All that aside, it has some redeeming moments. I am not saying run out and see it. No. I do not want to be held responsible for that. In fact, I would urge you to not see it. It really is one of the final squeals of the National Lampoon legacy. (How you go from making Chevy Chase's finest films to disposable fart jokes is beyond me.)

I spoke with Kristanna Loken (who plays Hotessa) about the film, and she took on the film after reading the script and finding it humorous. While I can see the humor (I admit I laughed a few times), I have to say this will not go down as one of Loken's more memorable roles. If you are a fan of hers, you can probably skip this. If you find her attractive and want to see her with Sophie Monk, then you might be more interested.

In the end, I have to say this film was slightly better than I expected. But I expected the worst, so that means nothing.
