Love me some rowdy Roddy Piper
It's an out there movie that takes itself as serious as it can. Almost thought it was going to be just one big porno with what the premise was. I loved the frog costumes. Wish they were consistent with the quality of the frog costumes. The woman frog's face was stiff and reminded me of the old Howard the Duck movie, but Toady's face had a lot more movement and expression reminiscent of how the Skeksis in Dark Crystal moved.
B-rate Snake Plissken travels across B-rate Mad Max wasteland to do battle with B-rate, frogged out Jabba the Hutt and co. All in the name of repopulation. Mostly groans with a few laugh out loud moments (“Eat lead, froggies!”) - would make sense on the shelf next to Killer Klowns From Outer Space.
I enjoyed this post apocalyptic satire more than I thought I would. It is Roddys best attempt at acting......apparently he hired an on set acting coach and gave all his effort. Sandahl Bergman as his opposite is a passable actress though she is very skinny for all her minimally clothed scenesscenes.
Mad Max meets soft-core porn meets Frogs starring the Hot Rod Rowdy Roddy Piper
