Film Crew: Wild Women of Wongo Reviews
August 1, 2011
The sharp-tongued critics behind Mystery Science Theater 3000, Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy return as The Film Crew. Their target is the wonderfully named Wild Women of Wongo...
The bonkers premise of Wild Women of Wongo starts with the bored Mother Nature and Father Time creating two tribes. The first is the Wongo tribe, filled with beautiful women and ugly men. The second is the Goona tribe, filled with attractive men and ugly women. As the two tribes meet, chaos ensues.
Naturally enough, the film is terrible. Poor enough to worry for the sanity of those involved in its production, it probably deserves to languish unloved in a vault somewhere. For some strange reason director James L. Wolcott elected to insert footage of a squawking parrot into the movie whenever things needed livening up, something that becomes highly annoying the third time around.
With a film as misguided and downright silly as this, the big question is can the Film Crew make it even funnier? It's the kind of movie that unwittingly challenges the audience to make their own jokes, and although there are some extremely amusing comments from the Film Crew, you can't help but feel that they picked a very easy target with this one. If you love MST3K then the Film Crew series is worth a look.

a one star movie made two stars better by the MST crew heckling in the background, natch. filmed in beautiful florida (hey! that's where they filmed "flipper" too! calm down, little johnny) this epic was simply an exploitive reason to get men and women to dress in loincloths and to run around like they were prehistoric types (they've never done THAT in hollywood before!) and to rassle one another, what joy. JUST like it was way back when...

MST fans, this is one that fits right in. A terrible movie, now with the proper fun and mocking added. The host sequences are pretty funny too. Now DANCE!

Another good riff from the stars of Rifftrax and the later seasons of MST3K. This movie is probably the worst they've done, and the riffing is outstanding. Very hilarious.
