The only intelligent animal in the movie, a colorful parrot, narrates this simple story of love, lust, and bedrail. The main pair of wild women looks like white trash in leopard skin and black. They dislike their uggy local tribe's men and may just have to hogtie some men from another tribe from the south. They swim in a large croc pot, or legume of crocodiles, tempting the croc gods like leggy snacks.

Bad acting and stilted duffus dialog do a comedy not make. It is a croc.

4.0 out of 5 stars So awful it's wonderful 2 Dec 2009
Format:DVD
This is one of those films that's so bad in every respect that it's actually enjoyable. Not quite in the same league as Plan 9 From Outer Space, but almost. I think the producers of the film must have realised how bad it was so tried to make it amusing by inserting at frequent intervals shots of a parrot making corny remarks. But whatever the location, the parrot appears to be in exactly the same tree that has miraculously moved from one place to another. I won't bother to describe the plot - it really doesn't matter - just enjoy the dreadful script, acting and production values.

1.0 out of 5 stars So bad it's dreadful 13 Aug 2013
By Colin Smith "keep on running" TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is truly awful. You've heard the oft-used clichéd term: "It's so bad it's great"...well this is so bad it's....bad! No saving grace anywhere - no script, terrible performances, embarrassingly daft dialogue, zero production values, even completists will struggle to stay awake through this one. Before watching I was reliably informed that the story revolves around a clan of beautiful women living on an island paradise known as Wongo (Florida). The lovesick Amazonians are on the prowl for a group of gormless men living on the other side of the island, but find themselves under the radar of a horde of lonely ape men who plan to take them as mates. Having now sat through it I'm still none the wiser.

At least the tasty Amazonian totty are pleasing on the eye.... With not a hair out of place, they pounce on their hapless male victims (gulp) before marching them off dog-on-lead style. Please don't knock the squawking-talking parrot - he's the best thing in it. With nothing going for it, the movie needs a lifeline - surely the producers will at least attempt to play it for laughs (which they do) but it's not funny just downright bloody annoying.

I obtained my copy through buying the bumper bargain boxset: Sci Fi Classics [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] which at least gives you another 49 low-budget movies to mull over if this charmless bull droppings from 1958 should fail to please (and the collection also plays on a Region 2 DVD player).

3.0 out of 5 stars "He Carries The Wing Of The White Bird Of Peace." 15 May 2006
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Despite being a camp classic, this film often drags. The premise is simple: two tribes, Goona and Wongo, inhabit an island. The women of Wongo are beautiful, while the men are ugly (by which I mean average looking), while, predictably, the women of Goona are ugly (really ugly; one of them looks like Divine on a bad day) and the men are handsome. This paves the road for great conflict, but also paves the way for long boring stretches of canoe paddling and stupid subversive plotting.

The film opens with amusing credits done in a cave painting motif, and notes that one of the star Wongo women, Wana, is "Adrienne Bourbeau" (Barbeau) in a very early role. The other Wongo women get monikers like "Omoo" and "Ahtee." The central fixture of Wongo life is worshipping a "dragon god" which is actually a small alligator. (This was filmed at various tourist traps in Florida.) Women go talk to the alligator, and then interpret the alligator's instructions for the tribal leaders in between frolicking in their authentically native sundresses and bikinis.

This film has loads of filler, and manages to get boring at an alarming pace. Also frequently featured is a highly annoying parrot that mostly squawks, but also encourages the women to wrestle each other (with much hair pulling.)

Of course a man from Goona shows up and the Wongo women swoon while the men plan to kill him. The women foil their efforts in one of the least plausible screen moments in history. Trivia buffs please note that as the Goona man makes his escape (by canoe) the background music is the exact same music as used during the "resurrection of the dead" scene in Ed Wood's infamous "Plan Nine From Outer Space!" This is a welcome break from the rest of the soundtrack, which is highly bassoon intensive.

I would have given this film two stars, but there is one scene that earns it another: the "sacrifice dance" scene, which features the Wongo women writhing about led by a Queen in an alligator headdress. I have not laughed quite so hard in a while.

As the film winds down we see a woman wrestling a small alligator for what seems like an hour, followed by a call-and-response sacrifice ceremony reminiscent of the loyalty vows in "The Wild, Wild World of Batwoman." This leads ultimately to a unique fight scene featuring men with clubs against women with spears against an alligator. (The alligator wins.)

Of course everyone knows how this is going to work out: the ugly men and women pair up, and the attractive men and women pair up. This leads to much rejoicing, mostly from the audience, because their 72-minute nightmare is finally over.

This is fun viewing once for strictly camp value, but most people wont need to see it any more than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walla-Walla-Bing-Bang!... 3 Aug 2005
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I love this movie! Yes, it's stooopid. However, by watching this tale unfold, we know the makers of this film were well aware of it's ineptitude! It's all for fun. Story?? Well, the men of Wongo are goons, while the women are beautiful. The men of nearby Goona are surfer-dude beach-types, and the women are "ugly" (which means they're fairly normal looking). Wongo refuses to help Goona to defeat an army of apemen (guys with white paint on their faces). Events occur which force the Wongans to seek out the Goonans, which gets the "ugly" guys 'n' gals together! The women of Wongo strike out on their own, capturing the Goonan men by surprise, and a good time is had by all! Watch for the annoying parrot, the 3' alligator attack, and the Wongo-babes' dance of doom! WWOW Belongs on every DVD shelf, if for no other reason than to make other schlock-addicts drool...

1.0 out of 5 stars I'm not wild about these women 9 Mar 2006
By Lonnie E. Holder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I think I must have lost my sense of humor, because this movie was just bad. The dance of the women for the dragon god became unendurable, and I was tempted to fast forward through it. The fight between one of the women and a four foot long alligator was too protracted to have any tension. I did think the fact that the alligator started to swim after release was interesting.

There are supposedly three groups of people in this movie. There are the people of Goona, where the men are handsome and the women are homely. There are the people of Wongo where the women are beautiful and the men are ugly. Lastly, there are the ape men who may be invading Goona.

After the hot women of Wongo anger their god, their men send the women off to the temple of the dragon god, which is a large alligator. The women soon encounter the handsome men of Goona, who have been sent weaponless into the woods as part of a trial, and being the wild women that they are, they capture all the men to be their personal playthings. In the meantime, the men of Wongo appear to have disappeared, perhaps done away with by the ape men.

The absolute worst part of this movie is the predictable ending, which I will not reveal in any detail in the event you decide to watch this turkey.

This movie has it all; bad acting, bad plot, bad dialog, and bad props. I thought I saw colorful shorts under the loin cloth of one of the men. The women appeared to be wearing swim suits under their outfits, or perhaps tights. I did enjoy the blue hair of one of the male leaders of Wongo. The leader anticipated a trend.

I thought this movie might serve as fodder for bad jokes. However, either I was uninspired or this movie is just too insipid to be joke material. In any case, this movie fails to take off in any meaningful way, so I recommend you avoid this movie for something with more quality, like "Blood Tide." Good luck!

3.0 out of 5 stars WHAT ABOUT THE WOMEN? 29 Jun 2013
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The feature opens explaining this is an experiment in nature. Goona is inhabited by "men with skin like women." The women in Goona look like Soviet Bloc stereotypes (cold war era). Wongo inhabited by brutish men with bad skunk hair and beautiful women, blonds, brunettes, and red heads. They are have smooth legs without a scratch living in huts.

Wongo worships stock footage films of alligators which they call the dragon god. The two live separate, but when a pretty Goona male prince comes to visit to ask for help against the ape men, the ladies go gaga over him, which the brutes don't like.

The film boasts one good cat fight. Not that the fight was any good, but the people watching and cheering in outtakes was funny.

This is a film that predates the Beach movies of the 60's. It has a similar feel to it and I would recommend it to those who like that theme.
