A princess (Laura Herring) in the Amazon rain forests tries to fight a conglomerate threatening the forests by going to Los Angeles. There she links up with a rich kid (Jeff James) who tells her that she must get on tv to succeed with her mission. Quick as a wink the two come up with the idea of winning a lambada dance contest that is getting tv attention. Sid Haig also co-stars as a witch doctor who accompanies the princess and provides some humor.

Beautiful place. Do you know it?

Oh, of course not. Anyway,

these are the downstairs bedrooms.

They are for guests.

Except this one...

...which our good- for- nothing son

occupies occasionally.

It's 3:
00, Jason. In case getting up

ever occurred to you.

Out dancing all night.

Whenever he's like this,

you can skip his room.

- How will I know?

- If you don't see him eating...'s probably safe to assume

he's passed out in there.

Now this is the entertainment....

Oh, God, you startled me.

Oh, hello.

- Oh, I hired a new maid today.

- That's good.

- I hope she's better than the last one.

- She seems okay.

Oh, she's an absolute darling girl.

And she does an outstanding job.

But- - Well, I am a bit concerned

about having her live here.

I don't want a thief,

if that's what you mean.

She might pocket change we

leave out, but I'll watch her for that.

But what worries me is that

she seems so, I don't know...

...different from the other girls

we've had.

You know, she only had

one small handbag with her.

Oh, I'm afraid she only has

one change of clothes.

I don't care what she wears

as long as she does a good job.

I just hope she takes a bath

every now and then.

Jason, where do you think

you're going?

- Out.

- Could you be a little more specific?


Yo, you're in luck, it's Jason.

Oh, hi, Ash. I'm on my way.

We had a date.

I want to dance with you. Tonight.

Look, are you gonna dance

with me or not?

Okay, fine, fine.



Why not?

Come on.

You look great. Mom would die

if she saw you in her dress.

I do not wish to make

your mother upset, Jason.

My mom likes being upset.

She's made it a lifestyle.

I want you to meet

some of my friends.

- Hey, guys.

- Well, look who finally showed up.
