Description du produit
To avoid a serious avocado shortage, the U.S. government hires feminist anthropology professor Margo Hunt (Shannon Tweed) to find the man-eating Piranha Women tribe who inhabit the avocado jungle of Southern California. Assisted by chauvinist Jim (Bill Maher) and a dim-witted student named Bunny, Hunt must convince the tribe to move to Malibu condos while simultaneously fending off her rival Dr. Kurtz (Adrienne Barbeau). Meanwhile, Bunny's contemplating joining the Piranha gals -- but she must consume Jim first.

Looks like the U.S. strategic avocado supply is being threatened. You can locate the region on older maps that show the Mohave Desert was. Seems that there is a bunch of wild native California women be lead by a renegade scientist Dr. Kurtz (Adrienne Barbeau.) They have the munchies for avocado pickers. Is this a fact or is someone dumping Avocados off the coast?
Watch as the daring trio of Dr. Margo Hunt (Shannon Tweed), Jim (Bill Maher), and Bunny (Karen Mistal) go up the river to investigate. And do not over look the tribe of Donahue's.
As a side note, Bunny got invited to a wet T-shirt contest but could not go as all her T-shirts were dry.

Sure, the box cover has three hot ladies on it (some of them are known to show skin), and with a name like "Cannibal women in the Avocado Jungle", the viewer is certainly expecting a movie that fits the B-genre.
Alas, no. Well, the budget and (horrible) production value certainly fall into the B-category, the plot line and other 'virtues' (cough)gratuitousnudity(cough) of the category are missing.
The plot is a bit of parody of "Heart of Darkness" (and Apocalypse Now) in that the protagonists go deep into the "Avocado jungles of southern California" to seek the fate of Dr. Kurtz, who went missing on an earlier expedition.
The movie lampoons extreme Feminism: Shannon Tweed play a stereotypical uptight Women's Studies professor (Margo Hunt), who seems a caricature only until she meets Adrienne Barbeau's character (Dr. Kurtz), who is an more exaggerated, militant feminist. The satire of Feminism would be typical in a lot of B-Movies, so the ready willingness it does this at first seems appropriate. However, the plot betrays this:
1. "Bunny", an airhead who clearly doesn't belong among the intelligentsia of Dr. Kurtz/Margo Hunt, takes up the Feminist mantle by offering to join the cannibals and kill her first man.
2. The expedition party comes across the males of the jungle, who are fearful of all women and domesticated to the point of ridiculousness: they throw tea parties and crochet their own clothing.
3. After the teaser of nudity (censored in the Amazon streaming video) in the opening scenes...there's nothing. Not even some sexy poses or anything at all even meant to titillate. The women wear tribal clothing, but nothing about the cinematography or the camera takes advantage of this fact. In a B Movie/exploitation flick, you lose all credibility if you don't deliver those goods.
4. Sacrificial men in the temple of the cannibal women are a reverse parody of 'typically objectified' women: intelligent, sensitive beefy hunks, who are nevertheless upset to be only valued for their meat (literally).
In the end, then, the movie honors sex-negative Feminism more than it lampoons it. For the underlying messages and (especially) the stubborn refusal to add sex appeal to any part of the movie, I give it the low rating. Not because honoring sex-negative Feminism in a movie is wrong, but because honoring sex-negative Feminism in THIS kind of movie (which typically honors sex-positive Feminism) is more than wrong....its a betrayal.
If you like silly movies, give it a look.
Fair warning, despite the casting of Adrienne Barbeau (of Maude fame) as the Piranha Queen, breasts play a surprisingly small role in this epic.
Suggested double feature: Amazon Women on the Moon. (Try telling your coworkers that you watched those two movies in a single weekend!)
