The film was based on an idea writers John Platt and Roy Langsdon came up with while driving to producer Menahem Golan's office. The script was commisioned in December 1989, written in 10 days, in production by the end of January 1990, and hit theaters on March 17th, all in an attempt to beat Lambada (1990) to theaters. Both films were released on the same day. See more »
Nia is supposed to be an Amazon Princess from Brazil, the glaring mistake is this character speaking Spanish, instead of Portuguese the actual language spoken in Brazil. See more »

They say the music is an universal language. I know another.

This movie is one of the funniest things I've ever had the pleasure of watching. I was like 6-8 when I watched it, numerous times. I was always impressed by how bizarre people thought us down here to be, I mean, oh, yes, EVERYBODY can dance, and especially lambada, not only one or other weird boy band, and everyone can easily get in the US, and, as far as I can remember, she's an Indian or something, and looks nothing like one, but, OK. Anyway, this gets a 6 simply because it's fun and funny. It's so bad, but SO BAD I can't help but laugh. Everyone I know knows this movie, and they are all like, It's bad as hell, but it's so funny. So, here's to crappy American movies that show how the average American think (though they are trained this way) the rest of the world is. And, what you know? I'm Brazilian born and raised, still residing, I have a computer, multiple TVs, have never been in the middle of the Amazon jungle, and I'm certainly not an Indian. Most people in the country aren't. PS: Nisa? If I ever meet someone here called that, I will make it my life mission to mock her.
