The Girl From Rio, as you might guess, is about the island nation of Femina, which is inhabited by scantily-clad superwomen intent on conquering the world. At some point, one of them goes undercover as a nail salon worker in Rio. In retrospect, the marketing department realized that they should have put more emphasis on the machine gun-toting babes, and less on the manicures.

Also deserving less emphasis? The movie’s leading man, Jeff, a spy who, on a scale of Jason Bourne to James Bond, rates somewhere around the level of bathtub mildew. He’s come to Rio to kick ass and wear size fifteen sport shirts, and fortunately the hotel is well stocked with size fifteen sport shirts. It must be a Rio thing.

It’s Carnival time, so grab your beads and join Mike, Kevin, and Bill before the Girl From Rio pulls a Guy From Harlem and moves to Miami.

Yeah. Sequel to "The Million Eyes of Sumuru".
Tomorrow night I plan to watch the MST3K episode of "Million Eye" followed by this.

And the first Jess Franco movie riffed since Castle of Fu Manchu. Correct me if I'm wrong. I love this period and type of film so excited about this one.

Oh God, he really did direct Fu Manchu. Man, that episode was painful.

I really hope they made a "Girl from Rio meets a Guy from Harlem" movie.
