Tasteless, forced comedy just about killed the Zorro franchise for many years.

Audience Reviews for Zorro, the Gay Blade


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA This movie is funny as hell man. I loved this movie before I understood what "gay blade" meant. I just thought he was SUPER happy and loved brightly colored outfits, of course now I know that it means you served in the navy and you're very talented with a whip! Now that I think about it, the gay Zorro doesn't use a blade.... title error, loss of half a star!

Curiosity definitely killed the cat or rather it should have killed me. Funny, stupid and all of the above...
