I am sure this was not the career that Debbie Gibson and Tiffany saw when they were big in the 80s, but they both throw themselves into it with gusto. The effects and CGI is not good but you don't have time to dwell on this before it moves to the next scene and there are all sorts of flaws in the behaviour of the Pythons in particular (decapitating bodies for example) but if you want a serious film about snakes you would probably choose one with a different title.
The bottom line though is it does not feel over long and boring while delivering what it promises on the box the box with infectious energy and not a little wit!
But who cares when there's so much fun to be had. The two women's characters hate each other which leads to a cat-fight in the middle of a fund-raising party for the swamp where punches and cream cakes are thrown and, without them even noticing, the rest of the guests start getting eaten by monsters, following which one of them says, "I think we're alone now," and the other replies with the next line of the song. Mickey Dolenz has a surprise and funny cameo and gets (spoiler warning) eaten. Sorry was that too late? Well, it was obvious anyway. The DVD cover art doesn't exaggerate by much. There are not just two monsters but dozens of them. Most of the cast gets eaten.
It really is a bad film but I was too busy enjoying myself most of the time to notice.
Eco warrior Dr Nikki Riley (Debbie Gibson) releases a captive python from an animal testing lab, time passes... the local gator population starts to decline and Sheriff Terry O'Hara (another former singer Tiffany Darwish) puts a ban on hunting gators much to the annoyance of a ragtag bunch of local hunters.
When a gator is attacked and killed by a large snake Sheriff Tiff declares open season on snakes.
Not wanting to give too much away but when the snakes start to chomp their way through the local population Tiff comes up with a novel solution (the clue is in the title).
From thereon in it's good old fashioned fun as the mega-beasts head towards a local nuclear power station and our heroes try to stop them.
The CGI effects are bargain basement but to be honest that suits the movie well. The script is purposefuly cliche-ridden with some knowing nods to the two former pop idol leads and even a nod towards Jaws.
The cat-fight between former pop rivals Tiffany and Debbie Gibson as they demolish the banquet at a fundraiser as former Monkee Mickey Dolenz looks on is far better than the vast majority of the monster bouts.
The downside is there are no extras other than a trailer but selling at well under a fiver it's pretty good value and if your sense of humour can cope with a movie that is played solely for laughs this mindless monster mash may be right up your street.
Both Tiffany and Debbie manage to get a few extra plugs in from the "I think we're alone now" exchange to a couple of musical contributions Serpentine by Tiffany and especially Debbie Gibson's Snake Charmer to the tune of the old ribald classic "It was in Baghdad when my mother met my dad..."
