Overview

Buxom Playboy foldout Shannon Tweed plays a sexy college professor assigned to investigate a sudden, disastrous avocado shortage; her predecessor, a Dr. Kurtz Adrienne Barbeau has never returned from the dreaded California Avocado Jungle. Accompanied by air-headed assistant Karen Mistal and macho guide Bill Maher of Politically Incorrect fame, Tweed ventures into the deepest jungle, where the Piranha Women rule. Proof that this civilization is a matriarchy is the presence of a tribe of wimpy, domesticated men called the Donnahews, who chant names like Alan Alda and Fritz Mondale as their mantra. Fortunately, Tweed is armed with her N.O.W. membership card, so she is allowed safe passage. She finally catches up with Kurtz, who reveals that the avocado shortage is phony, designed by the government as an excuse to capture the Piranha women and transform them into Malibu housewives.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Centerfold Shannon Tweed may be the putative star of this likable B-movie, but it's Adrienne Barbeau who gets to have the most fun. Poking fun not just at Marlon Brando but also at her own scream-queen image, the buxom brunette hits every mark like she's still hoofing it on Broadway instead of wading through an increasingly shallow pool of post-John Carpenter career options. As for the film itself, it never takes itself too seriously, and it never pauses long enough to make the silliness lose its charm. Heck, even Tweed comes off as a smart cookie thanks to her knowing smirk, her campy scientist getup, and her oh-so-intellectual spectacles. Bill Maher isn't much of an actor, but one could imagine him having made the leap to latter-day Mel Brooks satires instead of late-night TV; he more than holds his own. The title itself may be the best thing about Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death, but the flick just about lives up to its moniker.
