Movie Reviews

True 70's flavored B-movie!
gary e flatt | Daytona Beach, FL United States | 07/28/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This a true classic. I grew up watching this as a young kid and I love it! Johnny Yune stars as the english accent challenged "Bruce", a goofball of a character that is inexplicably trafficking cocaine for the mafia that he thinks is "special flour". Along the way you'll see more politically incorrect characters, jokes, and slang than you can handle. Dumb cops, amateur "kung-fu", one liners from cheeseville, 70's styled chicks and hilarious stereotypes! If you go into this movie with the mindset that it is a b-movie, I think you could end up enjoying yourself. For the TRUE fans of older Cheesey movies."
It's all about the Yune

"Johnny Yune plays an affable if somewhat dim witted immigrant who inadvertently gets mixed up with the drug trafficking underworld. To say any more about the plot would be pointless as it only serves as a device to spotlight Yune's silly stand-up humor within several contrived situations.

The acting is bad and the jokes are tired but Yune's character is so likable that you can't help but root for him. He's goofy, innocent, clever and has a heart of gold.

Oddly enough, the DVD has been edited of a couple of "tiny bits" to receive a PG rating that my old Beta tape did not have. The items cut were small and unimportant, but it seems strange as what's left of the film isn't exactly inoffensive. Yes, like many films of it's time, it has plenty of politically incorrect, stereotyping humor. But it's directed at everyone and so ridiculous that it can't be taken seriously.

I like this film probably because I saw it on cable over 15 years ago where it ran over and over again and somehow etched itself into my sub consciousness. I also like it because Yune is genuinely funny and charming. You may like it if you like other tasteless and absurd 70s/80s comedies
Terrible DVD transfer

"Wow the picture quality is just awful, sound is muffled. The DVD looks way worse than the old VHS version. I would buy VHS if you like this movie. The movie is pretty funny even though the gags are really dated. There is a scene where Marsha Warfield (from Night Court) is in jail and she rubs cocaine on her teeth."
