Hell Comes to Frogtown (1987,Donald G. Jackson & R.J. Kizer)

I'm just going to copy paste the plot outline for this one because its just too good.

"'Hell' is the name of the hero of the story. He's a prisoner of the women who now run the USA after a nuclear/biological war. Results of the war are that mutants have evolved, and the human race is in danger of extinction due to infertility. Hell is given the task of helping in the rescue of a group of fertile women from the harem of the mutant leader (resembling a frog). Hell cannot escape since he has a bomb attached to his private parts which will detonate if he strays more than a few hundred yards from his guard."

Given this plot, I was expecting something that was "so bad it's good", but instead got a film that knew it was silly, and had as much fun as possible with its premise. It has a lot fun and the fun over comes the flaws, which are many. But then again how can someone not expect something liek this to be flawed?

I just wanted a film like this to be as fun as possible and this one delivered with its cartoonish over the top style and non stop antics. It left me smiling a lot of the time, and thats all I wanted from it.
