Editorial Reviews

Chemical waste seeps into a small town's water supply, causing the birth of a mutant FROGGG which is instinctively driven to mate with its genetic match - human women. Sexy EPA super-agent Dr Barbara Michaels tracks the Froggg's every move, fighting off corrupt good-ol'-boy politicians and drunken rednecks at every turn. No one in town believes her, or the evidence, until the shocking climax when the Froggg is finally brought to justice... or IS it...?

"Frog-g-g" is an intentional spoof of pre-CGI monster movies, and as such is a mixed bag. At times it takes itself a bit too seriously, but at others is intentionally campy. The plot is as old as cinema itself: evil business tycoon dumps toxic waste into the town water supply creating a strain of giant killer amphibians who need to spawn. What I am saying here is that the giant frog is extremely attracted to human women, which, naturally, leads him directly to the St. Mary's Catholic School For Girls. There is a corrupt Sheriff (the brother-in-law of the businessman, of course) and a romance subplot. In other words, it's exactly what you would expect from a silly guy-in-a-rubber-suit monster movie from the 1970s.

Sometimes the spoof works (normally when it is being more intentional) and sometimes it just drags. There is a lot of high school football shown (some might crassly call this padding) and eventually the frog man does invade the football game. I have a couple of favorite moments from the film, the first was in the opening credits: I knew I was in for a rough ride when I saw the credit "Music by The Glam Spice Generation." Although unable to top the music credit, I did enjoy that the frog killed a nun instead of procreating with her. When asked to explain this unusual behavior, our heroine, EPA super agent Barbara Michaels, says that "he probably sensed a low estrogen level."

There were also some things that I did not like about the film, notably the inability to fast forward through the previews, and the frog-human hybridoma birth at the end of the film, which was both predictable and unnecessary. It did feature scream-queen Mary Woronov as a gynecologist delivering the little biology experiment, which was a bit of a B-movie coup for the production.

4.0 out of 5 stars FROG-G-G IS A G-G-GAS October 28, 2005
Format:DVD
Rarely has a B movie sendup been as effectively campy as this little gem. Obviously a tribute to those fifties movies that featured genetically mutated creatures, FROG-G-G has some of the most inane dialogue one could imagine, a creature which is obviously a man in a frog suit and actors who treat their roles like Shakespeare. This all adds up to an entertaining, often hilarious, comedy horror flick. The finale in which the female doctor confronts the frog creature and strips to her breasts is priceless; the fan in the stadium who screams "It's a giant frog..run for your lives" is straight out of "Them." It's all done with such affection for the genre it spoofs and it's one of the funninest horror spoofs in recent years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ribbit June 24, 2006
By MEL
Format:DVD
Overall a good movie if one is in the mood for it. Some reviewers have complained about the lack of action, obviously they have never watched a 70s drive-in movie which Frog-g-g is honoring/spoofing. The dialogue is part of the joke, dialogue is cheap compared to action scenes, and more nudity would also be beyond a typical 70s drive-in.

1.0 out of 5 stars This amphibian should have stayed in the swamp June 27, 2005
Format:DVD
I was truly looking forward to this title. It sounded and looked fun. The idea of someone making a cheesy 50s monster movie could have been worth a few laughs, but instead this title only bores. First off, there is almost no Froggg in the entire movie which is the biggest disappointment. I have to sit through 75+ minutes of lame drama and dialogue to get a few glimpses of the Froggg humping one bare breasted chick. Why? On top of that the film lacks any sort of fun plot. I mean give me something thats a bit more interesting than just a bunch of talking heads. I wanted to see some hot chicks search for the creature in the swamp, I wanted to see some cuties dragged off to his lair in desperate need of rescue (Creature from the Black Lagoon stuff), I wanted to see a few goofy action scenes of the Froggg going on a killing spree, or it maybe escaping a silly trap. Something exciting! Geez, have fun with it, be creative! Who wants to sit through endless and tiring dialogue scenes in a creature flick? My advice to the filmmakers: Keep going, your concepts are good, but your execution needs to be a lot more inspired. Have some fun with the creature, put the humor in the action and most important...put more creature in a creature movie!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Frog-g-g!.... Kermit No! November 10, 2009
Format:DVD
Frog-g-g!: 5 out of 10: Frog-g-g is slightly better than the average nature gone wild remake that one usually finds on the Sci-Fi channel running in a movie marathon some rainy Saturday afternoon. (This, by the way, is damning with faint praise.)

It has a good sense of fun about it, a real catchy theme song and lipstick lesbian sex scenes. It is also a missed opportunity that tries to do a couple of things and pretty much fails at all of them.

For example the lead scientist character is a lesbian. She is played by Kristi Russell who does make a decent movie lesbian. (A movie lesbian is a hot chick who likes to make out with other hot chicks preferably when guys are watching. This should not be confused with non-movie lesbians who have mullets, beer guts, wear hockey jerseys and will kick your ass for looking at them twice.) While there are a couple of brief lesbian sex scenes they seem a bit sisterly. (I really don't mean this in a good way). There is some topless hugging and kissing but nothing that screams good exploitation.

Well at least as a parody of 70's nature gone wild movies it works right? Nope. All the parts are here (The scientist hero, her girlfriend, the reluctant sheriff and the big bad industrialist who of course is both the lifeblood of this town and the sheriff's brother-in-law.), but the movie plays it much too straight for a good Airplane style parody.

Everything else is downhill from there. The movie has no horror at all and considering the plot consists of a man-sized frog copulating with virgins the exploitation is disappointing. (I'm sorry but when one rents a cheap C-grade Humanoids from the Deep rip-off. One expects a hecatomb of nubile young flesh and gratuitous nudity to boot.)

Nevertheless I'm a sucker for nature gone wild movies and movie lesbian sex, no matter how tame, has never hurt a film. Neither has a catchy theme song with the dancing Sleestak.
