Adventures of Hercules In The Land of Cheese

"Oh ... goody. Another rescue. How many times do I have to get tied up like this before the big lunk gets the idea?" Source: vidcap from "The Adventure of Hercules." Thanks to the good folks at the Peplum blog for pointing it out!

The Adventures of Hercules is a ripe piece of sword and sandal cheese from 1985 starring strongman Lou Ferrigno. The reviewers on the Internet Movie Data Base give it a fairly thorough drubbing, but frankly it does not sound much worse than a lot of other family-oriented sword and sandal flicks.

And in one respect, it's much better than most. In this adventure, Hercules has a couple of lovely young wenches accompanying him on at least some of his adventures, and I guess it being 1985 they figured out that some watchers would like to see skimpily clad females along with the usual leather-diaper clad male lead, and the female leads are MOST entertaining. You can check out a very abridged version of the movie to see more of what I'm talking about.

That's what I'm talking about!
