Quotes

Wendell: What do you make of it, Mike? White women running around like natives wearing GI-issue gear? Talking English, but weird English. "Headchoppers"? I never heard that word before. But I'll tell you one thing. J.J. and Duvall better make it back here on their own. Cause I ain't leaving here to go look for 'em. Those women are mean. And if they're bad, what do you think their men must be like?

"Those Women Are Mean!"...
30 December 2018 | by azathothpwigginsSee all my reviews

Blown off course during a storm, a plane-load of big, hairy men (including Clint "Killdozer" Walker, and Peter Lawford) lands on the MYSTERIOUS ISLAND OF BEAUTIFUL WOMEN (including: Jayne Kennedy, Rosalind Chao, and Deborah Shelton)! Said females are a semi-savage group of supermodel cultists, led by the goggle-eyed zealot, Lizabeth (Jaime Lyn Bauer). What terrible secret are they hiding? Why do they fear males so much? Who does their hair and makeup? MIOBW is a blissfully absurd, made-for-TV movie from a time when such productions seemed "edgy". Harmless and utterly enjoyable from beginning to end...
