The rainforest is doomed unless a tribal princess can teach the Americans how to dance.

I remember this moive.  Just what the heck was in the sack that made everyone drop to there knees in pain? 

I also love the idea of a jungle princess changing the world throught DANCE!  It's a plot from a Disney movie- trying to be sexy.  Maybe had she should have tried to see Bill Clinton.

I never seen this movie before, but I must say, it sounds extremely corny.  Though... that dance from the clip...  Buggedout  Buggedout  Buggedout

Not seen this gobbler yet, but regards the clip...once more, a guy takes out a thug, and don't take his weapons. Amature...

I saw this on cable one time years ago.  Wretched.   I didn't even know it got a theatrical release.  It looks like some direct to video piece of crap.

Saw this on cable like five or six years ago. I thought it sucked, it does have a few amusing moments that make you laugh really hard, the snake sack being one of them.

Anyways, I always thought Lambada was dumb. After seeing the clip I remembered why. It's not sexy at all when danced alone. At least it's not as stupid a dance as the Macarena was, and thank God, we never got a Macarena movie.

I saw this movie a long time ago.  I thought the princess was hot  Cheers, so I gave the movie a shot.  I did not think it was a bad movie, just typical 90's stuff.  I thought it was funny that she had to dance to save the rainforest.

I would watch it again.

Later,

The movie is terrible, and I almost gave it a lower rating than I did, but the Sid Haig as the witch doctor with the snake sack and magic feather really make me crack up.  The dancing angle is also presented with such seriousness that I cannot help enjoying it.

If it's any consolation, this is probably the best Lambada film ever made.

Can't imagine what actually Brazilians who saw this thought. Probably nearly we
re ready to stabbed there eyes out because of it out of shame. Really dancing helping the rain forest come on, give me a break. Richard Lynch and Sid Haig must of been wanting cash badly to appear in this stinker. Though this wouldn't be the first time Richard Lynch had done things for cash, look at Tony Zarindast's 1996 monstrosity known as Werewolf.

Nisa and her tribe live in the Brazilian rainforest. Part of the tribe's cultural heritage is the Lambada. Considering how close the dance is to sex, it is pretty obvious that the only reason Nisa's people have not overrun the Earth is that their rainforest is filled with man-eating animals. Anyway, Nisa and the other young people participate in rituals that involve dancing the Lambada and then eating an apple from the tree in the center of the village. All of that changes when Maxwell shows up with a government-signed deed for the land, and a bunch of jeeps filled with gun-toting mercenaries. If that was not evil enough, Maxwell makes sure to run over the sacred forbidden fruit tree after telling the tribe that they have to clear out.

GOOD GOD! This is, almost word for word, the majority of the plot for Avatar (2009)! Is there any movie that James Cameron didn't rip off when he was making that tired, overhyped, CGI-effects-ridden waste of 2-1/2 hours of my life?!  Buggedout
