Product Description

For Your Height Only is legendary amongst lovers of truly out there cinema. A film about a two and a half foot tall secret agent - A kung fu master and suave loving machine who struts his stuff in a Travolta style white suit! Can it be true that such a film exists? It can and it does and here it is! Unquestionably one of the most outrageous and whacked movies in the world. This double disc set also includes Challenge Of The Tiger - featuring the greatest clone of Bruce... Bruce Le. Released for the first time ever in a beautiful new 2.35: 1 scope transfer ... this is red hot martial arts action as two secret agents race around the globe to foil a crazed madman's plan for world domination!

5.0 out of 5 stars I knew it would be good, but... March 31, 2003
Format:DVD
I mean, come on, a filipino midget weapons expert spy?!?! Weng Wang is simply incredivle! I expected some good schlock but I was unprepared for the level of greatness that For Your Height Only was about to hit me with. This is hall of fame, people. Just the fact that half the villains are dubbed in by bad Edward G Robinson impersonators should be reason enough to check this out!! And I say impersonators in the plural form, but that's assuming there is more than one guy doing the voices--and that's almost doubtful . Every scene produces great line after line that you could potentially bust out at your next party and sound like a comic genius. Make a great drinking game out this movie and put one back whenever a villain gets mamed by a Weng-kick to the groin.
Sometimes it is the case with cheese classics that you need to wade through a bunch of boring parts to get to the juice. But not this one. I could honestly say this puppy moves. At one point, my buddy bursted out, "Oh, I never want this movie to end!!" And true indeed, it will be receiving many more viewings from this proud FYHO owner. There's even a Web site out there dedicated to the very existence of this film, which should be testament to the level of genius we are talking about. And I don't throw the "G" word around too much. It's just a shame Weng didn't milk this franchise and do a dozen sequels. It's so worthy. I love that little guy!
Include this flick in an evening's double feature with Willy Wonka and you've got yourself a little person party extravaganza. Put it on, soak it in, yuck it up...

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a keeper! February 16, 2000
By Dino
Format:DVD
This is a really funny movie from the 70's. It was one in a series of movies starring Weng Weng, a Filipino midget (about 2 ft tall i think). He plays a secret agent code named Aget Double-0. This movie is filled with sex, drama, action and international intrigue! Better than any James Bond movie (honest). This is a must see for an Austin Powers fan as this movie is probably where Mini Me was adapted from. The dubbing is funny too, kinda reminds me of Woddy Allen's "What's Up Tiger Lilly?".

5.0 out of 5 stars Attention fans! the sequel is now available! May 18, 2005
Format:DVD
Attention fans! the sequel to For Y'ur Height Only is now available on DVD. The Impossible Kid (aka 007˝ : NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE aka The Incredible Kung Fu Kid aka The Impossible Kid of Kung Fu aka 007˝: Rien N'est Impossible) follows Agent 00 on more adventures. Good news is that the print is a little better (not much) than the For Y'ur Height Only DVD and is dubbed (previous copies of this movie were only available in French without subtitles). Unfortunately, it is NOT dubbed by the geniuses that dubbed the 1st film but dont complain its more Weng Weng action! It is available on the "Martial Arts 50 Movie Mega Pack" which was just released a few months ago. I'm not going to give any plot details away but if you enjoyed the 1st film and want more midget action you might as well grab the second one.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Oh, my little head!" July 9, 2005
Format:DVD
A reviewer on the Internet Movie Database once referred to this very odd 70's Filipino spy genre spoof(?) as "the greatest movie ever." While there is some scant evidence to the contrary, I confess I made a similar declaration to my bad movie buddie Jack while watching this. It brought on one of those serious giggle fits, those breathless, guilty-pleasure, I-can't-believe-I'm-watching-this highs that only truly good bad movies can induce. Star Weng Wang is a god, though I could have done without seeing his oddly giant nipples. Somebody really needs to dig up more gems like this and get 'em on DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jaw Dropping! November 11, 2005
Format:DVD
A truly incredible piece of exploitation nonsense! For Your Height Only is the most amazing piece of exploitation trash I have ever seen ... Starring the one and only Weng Weng, the three feet high Filipino superstar in the first of three outings as Agent 00, the movies parodies the Bond cliches and then some!

A wonderful midnight movie - get some friends together and watch this film - its an unforgettable experience!

4.0 out of 5 stars "You're petite...like a potato." July 9, 2005
By Alan
Format:VHS Tape
This was another film introduced to me by my friend Ian, a true connossieur of bad cinema. The main character is a dwarf who is a master spy, and a chick-magnet to the ladies. Definitely an original idea. Very funny, though how much of it was intentional I'm not sure.

It's dubbed too (everything's funnier when it's dubbed).

If you like bad movies, you MUST see this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars So bad that it's good February 11, 2002
By Maekju
Format:DVD
This is one of those movies that is so unintentionally bad that it is a must for any B-movie collector. Horrible acting, a ridiculous story, the worst dubbing ever and pure cheese make this the most entertaining film to ever come out of the Philippines. I would not compare this to Austin Powers like the other reviewers did. Rather I would say this is the result of an untalented group of people trying to parody the Bond films with a 2 foot midget in a banana republic with no budget. The fact that this film is even on DVD is amazing. The price for a single copy of this DVD is probably more than they spent on the entire movie in the first place. Support bad art and get your copy today.

5.0 out of 5 stars THAT MAN IS SIMPLE GREAT! July 28, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Wow! God bless the moment when i bought that VHS. Weng Weng is great in this film, he looks like Jackie Chan doing "real action scenes", great figther, seductive, and very funny! A real good spy-secret agents-comedy film with a lot of great moments and the most unexpected villain! And yes, if you like Austin Powers world you must see this one, it's like an ancestor! Myke Meyers ought to lookig for this man to next Austin Powers film, it would be wonderful. 88 min. of funny scenes GUARANTEED!
