This was THE movie to watch in the late 80-early 90's with your friends for a great laugh out laud flick!!. It was hysterical. In college, it got the 'brainiacs' and the 'party-players' united as one. What a riot! There is something in this movie for everyone!

A feminist movie disguised as a bimbo movie. Adrian Barbeaubot and Shannon Tweed were in this and neither showed their fantastic boobs! WTF? And Bill Mahr is an idiot. The whole movie is so stupid, disguised as being funny.

A laughably awful, low-budget film.
World's greatest actress in world's greatest movie

"In my humble opinion this is the greatest movie ever made. Karen Mistal's portarayal of Bunny, the Bimbo was so perfect that her career was ended by the belief that she WAS a bimbo. Such a cruel fate for an actress whose talents single handedly carried "Return of the Killer Tomatoes." Another 'feature of this movie is that it is the only movie I have seen where Shannon Tweed keeps her clothes on. There is the usually sterling performance by Adrienne Barbeau, and Bill Maher demonstrates that long before he was "Politically Incorrect," he was just generally incorrect. I could go on and on about this movie, but it is too tedious typing in my straightjacket in the dark."
Fun Movie; Poor Transfer

"Ok; I remember this movie fondly. I still love it...and have the poster on my wall at home. But the DVD...I'm so disappointed. The quality is incredibly poor. The picture is grainy, and tends to have the 'cross-hatching' artifacts of over compression. The print itself had scratches that have been preserved for all time....how very sad. Frankly the quality is comparable to a 2nd generation VHS copy...even the one at your local rental store is likely to be better. Oh; and I recall someone else mentioning that the DVD is Mono! He explains that far better than I can. Well, all in all: Do Not Buy The DVD! If the studio doesn't care enough to put some resources into releasing the DVD of this flick, why should they reap any further profit from it?"
What's up, Doc?

"Cannibal Women in the avocado jungle of death is very, very funny. The basic idea is that the USA is running short of avocados and they need to make a deal with the Piranha Women to increase the free world's supply (it turns out that the Reds have started to beat us in the avocado race). So Shannon Tweed (Hot Dog), with the help of a guide played by Bill Maher (Politically Incorrect) and her student Bunny played by Karen Mistal (Return Of The Killer Tomatoes) must go into the jungle of death. Luckily Bill has a copy of the guide book.
Starring Adrienne Barbeau (Escape From New York) as the leader of the Piranha Women the film is a hoot. The movie is soaking in humor. For example the savages are said to speak a primitive language. French, in other words. And the jungle boat ride is compared to the Disney one (even with a hippo attack).
From Shannon collecting all she needs for the journey, selecting her notepads to deciding which bullets to take, to Bill trying to teach a tribe of Donahues how to be REAL MEN, with a beer scene right out of 2001, there is no limit to the funniness and a few adult jokes are placed here and there. The fight between Shannon and Barbeau COULD have been better - they don't know how to fence at all.
There is a message buried inside the silliness, about male and female relationships, but that's not allowed to screw up the comedy. To counter the weak serious theme there is some brief nudity, at the beginning, when the amazons are having a swim in the river and both Tweed and Mistal look good in the tight skins the Piranha women wear. Mistal does wear a lot of pink outfits, mostly what look like swimsuits, which is a pleasure to see. So it's all good, clean, adult fun! Great for a 90 minute flick. Get it used or new.
