This movie is incredibly ahead of it's time. Considered porn in it's day due to nude females and "adult" language, it is no more shocking by todays standards than a Madonna video. It is the comedy that sets this one apart from the crowd.
This is ribald comedy in the classical sense, peppered with 1960s taboos and social commentary, but serving up the sight gags and asides when you least expect them.
A Dave Freidman classic.

Friedman's spoof of Hollywood 'jungle movies' is over 30 years old, but it still holds up as both comedy and 'adult' fare.
There's a fair measure of toplessness and multitudes of bare behinds, particularly among the jungle denizens, so this film is not for the kiddies (unless you're a rather progressive parent). What makes the film memorable, however, is its outrageous treatment of that timeless Hollywood genre wherein Anglo-Americans venture into savage territory for treasure or to capture some legendary creature (e.g. King Kong). Friedman (who wrote the screenplay) pulls out all the stops here, making TRADER HORNEE both a masterpiece of political incorrectness (stuffed with questionably racist & sexist jokes) and a harmless confection of tame eroticism.
Blond siren Deke Sills ("Algona") never made another film, but she's a great amateur actress - greatly amateur, if you get my drift - and a balm to the soul. If you're red-blooded, full of pep and ambition, and a fan of matinee-style jungle adventures, you don't want to miss TRADER HORNEE!
The DVD includes the 8-minute film trailer - a classic of pulchritudinous self-congratulatory rhetoric - and an informative though low-key audio commentary by Friedman & Something Weird's Mike Vraney. You'll watch it more than once, and that's saying something!

A light farce of a jungle goddess hunted for her inheritance and treasure. Not a bad movie for the this type of movie. Nudity included.

This movie had to be a drivein special. The women were georgous but that's where it ended. Hamilton Hornee has
benn hired by the Wabash bank in Indianapolis to travel to Africa and find a missing Matthews heir named Prentiss. He is accompanied by his secretary Sultry Sommers,Tender Lee and two more heirs Max and Doris Matthews.
Also traveling with them on the trip is Dr. Stanley Livingston who wans to search for Nabucco the white gorilla.
Upon entering the jungle they are captured by feirce African tribesmen. Shortly thereafter they discover that Prentiss the missing cousin is actually Algona the white goddess who rules this tribe. After some attempts at action and humor the safari people escape. One member stays behind. I didn't remember seeing this movie at the drivein during the 1970's.

Not the type of comedy you bust out laughing at but one you find yourself chuckling a lot at.This is an sexploitation picture with a great sense of humor.The story is about a down on his luck detective and his mistress secretary who deeply in debt accept an assignment in Africa to find a missing heiress who turns out to be a jungle goddess of a flesh eating tribe.They take along a newswomen who is boffing the banker who hired them,a scientist who lives with 2 playmates and a leecherous cousin and his mistress who will inherit the fortune if the heiress isn't found.Their guide is a broken down drunken bum who was once a great hunter.On the way to find her they have various sexual liasons.No real down below nudity but plenty of topless good looking female nudity.The thing that sets this movie apart from most sexploitation is the good natured comedy throughout.One of my favorite movies ever.

Actually zero stars. Kinda like a video I once bought rated X that ended up a series of interviews with some ladies after a nice spicy description.

As usual the acting was weak and the story so-so. NO VALID ROMANCE. When it came to the "exotic" parts, the DVD movie skipped beyond minute displays of frolicing nudes. As for comedy, maybe after a few kegs. By then, you'll laugh at anything, well anything like this waste of funds.
