5.0 out of 5 stars The most entertaining movie of all time!!! 2 Nov 2005
Format:DVD
To start off. This movie is a movie for the whole family but I doubt anyone who is young or does not have a sense of humour would enjoy the light heartness of this movie.
The film consists of about 4 or 5 people who you repeatidly see over and over again who all play the different characters (typically henchmen). The main character is a meter-high superhero (South American inbred James Bond) and yes he does get his girl as well as casually saving the world, shooting people and making big explosions.
This low budget film is very entertaining in the fact that it seems all the money was spent on the tacky shirts you see American's buying when they come over to the U.K. The story line is barely existant but it's not a bad thing. If it was obvious then it might detract from the fun of everything else in the film that is unintentionally funny.
Overly you have to take this film with a shaker of salt to really apreciate it and all it's tounge and cheek phrases and the acting that is so appauling that it's entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars I knew it would be good, but... 1 April 2003
By K. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I mean, come on, a filipino midget weapons expert spy?!?! Weng Wang is simply incredivle! I expected some good schlock but I was unprepared for the level of greatness that For Your Height Only was about to hit me with. This is hall of fame, people. Just the fact that half the villains are dubbed in by bad Edward G Robinson impersonators should be reason enough to check this out!! And I say impersonators in the plural form, but that's assuming there is more than one guy doing the voices--and that's almost doubtful . Every scene produces great line after line that you could potentially bust out at your next party and sound like a comic genius. Make a great drinking game out this movie and put one back whenever a villain gets mamed by a Weng-kick to the groin.
Sometimes it is the case with cheese classics that you need to wade through a bunch of boring parts to get to the juice. But not this one. I could honestly say this puppy moves. At one point, my buddy bursted out, "Oh, I never want this movie to end!!" And true indeed, it will be receiving many more viewings from this proud FYHO owner. There's even a Web site out there dedicated to the very existence of this film, which should be testament to the level of genius we are talking about. And I don't throw the "G" word around too much. It's just a shame Weng didn't milk this franchise and do a dozen sequels. It's so worthy. I love that little guy!
Include this flick in an evening's double feature with Willy Wonka and you've got yourself a little person party extravaganza. Put it on, soak it in, yuck it up...

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a keeper! 17 Feb 2000
By Dino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a really funny movie from the 70's. It was one in a series of movies starring Weng Weng, a Filipino midget (about 2 ft tall i think). He plays a secret agent code named Aget Double-0. This movie is filled with sex, drama, action and international intrigue! Better than any James Bond movie (honest). This is a must see for an Austin Powers fan as this movie is probably where Mini Me was adapted from. The dubbing is funny too, kinda reminds me of Woddy Allen's "What's Up Tiger Lilly?".

5.0 out of 5 stars Attention fans! the sequel is now available! 18 May 2005
By David Dupuy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Attention fans! the sequel to For Y'ur Height Only is now available on DVD. The Impossible Kid (aka 007½ : NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE aka The Incredible Kung Fu Kid aka The Impossible Kid of Kung Fu aka 007½: Rien N'est Impossible) follows Agent 00 on more adventures. Good news is that the print is a little better (not much) than the For Y'ur Height Only DVD and is dubbed (previous copies of this movie were only available in French without subtitles). Unfortunately, it is NOT dubbed by the geniuses that dubbed the 1st film but dont complain its more Weng Weng action! It is available on the "Martial Arts 50 Movie Mega Pack" which was just released a few months ago. I'm not going to give any plot details away but if you enjoyed the 1st film and want more midget action you might as well grab the second one.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Oh, my little head!" 9 July 2005
By Prairie Fox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
A reviewer on the Internet Movie Database once referred to this very odd 70's Filipino spy genre spoof(?) as "the greatest movie ever." While there is some scant evidence to the contrary, I confess I made a similar declaration to my bad movie buddie Jack while watching this. It brought on one of those serious giggle fits, those breathless, guilty-pleasure, I-can't-believe-I'm-watching-this highs that only truly good bad movies can induce. Star Weng Wang is a god, though I could have done without seeing his oddly giant nipples. Somebody really needs to dig up more gems like this and get 'em on DVD!

4.0 out of 5 stars "You're petite...like a potato." 9 July 2005
By Alan - Published on Amazon.com
This was another film introduced to me by my friend Ian, a true connossieur of bad cinema. The main character is a dwarf who is a master spy, and a chick-magnet to the ladies. Definitely an original idea. Very funny, though how much of it was intentional I'm not sure.

It's dubbed too (everything's funnier when it's dubbed).

If you like bad movies, you MUST see this one.
