Lola is sexy
Weng has an annoying voice
Please God Stop The Pain


This is a film that I don't believe can exist, even while I'm watching it.  I can't believe that this film ever had funding and that anyone thought it to be a good idea.

Can't wait to find the sequel!

Ah, your Haiku is powerful.

The sequel is, sadly, not nearly the film that For Your Height Only was.  Despite having Weng-Weng again and he is still a smooth super-spy, quite a few of the scenes seem to be just going through the motions.  For the first, you have the silliness in the bar ("I like 'em little."), the crazy bit about them trying to assassinate Lola (I think it was Lola) every week, Agent 00 using the x-ray glasses on the receptionists, and all the scenes of him sliding while shooting.  The last reason is there, because you know some big stagehand was holding Weng-Weng for each scene, waiting for "Action!" so that he could toss the little guy along the floor.

Oh, and not to forget the fight between Agent 00 and Mr. Big.

It's surprisingly fun considering just how bad it is, but I guess that is why we're all here on this site.

The scene with Weng's boss giving him the various gadgets was hilarious.  The actor kept dropping off while talking about the gadgets.  I have a feeling he was making it all up as he went along.

I had little interest in seeing the film until I saw a portion of it on the Mondo Macabro DVD for The Devil's Sword.  One just doesn't realize how short Weng Weng is until they see him in action.  Amazing.

there's actually a third Weng Weng movie I wanna see, Wild Wild Weng I think it was called, and yep, it's a Western/Cowboy film  BounceGiggle

yeah Weng Weng is so short that he was in Guinsness Book of World Records for shortest lead actor in a movie ever (not sure if he still hold the record), my dad actually saw him in person once when he worked on tv sets way back in the 80's at the Phillipines
