FOR YOUR HEIGHT ONLY - 3 Slimes
Not Rated
Copyright 1979 Liliw Productions
Reviewed by Andrew Borntreger on 'a long time ago'

The Characters:  

  • Agent 00 - Weng Weng, the highly trained and respected secret agent who is about three feet tall.
  • Irma - Secret agent planted within the evil organization, considering she takes strolls in the park with 00 it's not surprising her cover is blown. Shot just before the ending credits roll.
  • The Chief - Leading the forces of good, this guy can make anything sound boring.
  • Dr. Van Kohler - Scientist who has created a powerful new weapon, the N-Bomb.
  • Anna, Lola, and Marilyn - Women that fall in love with 00 and briefly partner with him, some a little more than others.
  • The Big Guy - Heavyset guy who owns a terrible red suit. (No, he is definitely not Santa.) Shot by 00.
  • Cobra and Mr. Kaiser - Evil gang leaders who hate midgets, shot by 00.
  • An Impressive Number of Evil Henchmen - Just as impressive dead.
  • Mr. Giant - Leader of the evil organization, about a full head taller than 00, which isn't saying much. Shot by 00.

The Plot: 

Few films will ever come close to this one, it is just plain wrong and the dubbed dialog hardly helps. Who cares though? It's a dubbed midget spy film from the Philippines, for some reason I feel the DVD should glow around the edges and be accompanied by a chorus.

When the brilliant scientist Dr. Kohler is kidnapped by an evil organization the forces of good call on Agent 00 to rescue him. Don't worry that he has to jump kick people in the knees, this guy is lethal. In addition to his hand to hand skills, the agent is an accomplished marksman. One of the amusing things he does is slide across the floor firing his pistol and boy does he slide, one would suspect he is being thrown by a crew member. Tell me that some guy ready to toss Weng Weng along the floor when the director yells, "Action!" is not funny. (I don't believe you.) The pistol/submachine gun he uses is quite a bit of work, especially putting it together. Good thing all the bad guys give him time to assemble it.

For the most part the film is a blur of gunfights, clandestine meetings, a disco club, and simply confusing stuff, but finally Agent 00 locates the secret island Mr. Giant uses for a hideout. Evil gets the short end of the stick as numerous guards with red berets are gunned down by the triumphant good guys. You'll never look at a Bond film the same again.

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • The Philippines possesses the most powerful weapon known to man.
  • Getting kicked in the tailbone will stun you.
  • Hotel registers are public information.
  • Poison detection devices should be made out of the best conductor available, as in electrical.
  • Kindergarten children have the disposable income targeted by drug dealers. (Another example of poor marketing research.)
  • Midgets like to hide under tables and smash people's toes.
  • Dirty rags make excellent gas masks.
  • A midget and a woman in high heels can outrun four healthy men.
  • Secret tracking devices should not have blinking lights on them.
  • Spraying a room with submachine gun bullets will kill everyone except the good guys.

Stuff To Watch For: 

  • 3 mins - Mirror, mirror on the dresser...
  • 11 mins - He picks up a watch, but when we cut to him it's magically turned into a pendent.
  • 13 mins - Where is Q when you need him to explain gadgets?
  • 16 mins - Who in the heck thought this scene up? Hehehehe!
  • 36 mins - You know, the floor in this room looks really familiar...
  • 44 mins - A normal person would be cramped and uncomfortable inside that box.
  • 53 mins - The guard cannot see 00 hiding?
  • 59 mins - Let's not do this, please? Whew.
  • 62 mins - Is that a reference to "Fantasy Island?"
  • 75 mins - Where have I seen that floor before?

Quotes: 

  • Mr. Kaiser: "The forces of good are our sworn enemy, and I repeat, they must be exterminated. And I mean lethally!"
  • Agent 00: "I'm Secret Agent 00."

For Your Height Only
Reply #17. Posted on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM by WengWengWannabee
I recently viewed "For Y'ur Height Only" (in the movie title the word "your" is hyphenated) and I have not been the same since.
Stuff from the movie which has stayed in my head and will not go away:
– The dubbing of the Philipino actor's voices using generic african-american, mexican, british and 40s gangster film voices.
– Weng Weng's pancake-sized nipples.
– The atrocious video and audio editing throughout the entire movie.
– Weng Weng's disturbing comb-over.
– Weng Weng's multiple wardrobe changes throughout the film – sometimes in the same scene!
– Weng Weng's painfully overacted cry of "Irmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" near the movie's end.
– and so many more....
I would loooooooooooove to see the sequel. Does anyone know where it can be bought.

If you think this Philippine movie is weird, take a look at "THE KILLING OF SATAN", probably the worst "skeleton" b-movie I´ve ever seen. A midget spy cannot compete against a 40-something, moustache-wearing, out of shape islander called Lando who (please, watch this movie) ends up murdering Lucifer himself. With a magic stick. Given to him by the christian God, who happens to live in a cave in a philippines island.
Nude native women, religious stuff, crappy dubbing,guns, islands, the hell, Lando... and the infamous "uncle papier mache zombie"

Actually, "The Impossible Kid" is the sequel to "For Your Height Only."  It has some amusing parts, like Weng Weng riding a micro bike, but I definitely prefer the original.
There is a correction NEEDED HERE!

This movie totally deserves AT LEAST 4 stars!  Ive shown this movie to countless relatives, friends, and even teachers, and they all agree that it is phenomenal. Compared with other 3-star content, this is amazing, and I (and my friends) agree that it deserves at least a four.  Entertainment value just a bit less than killer klowns...

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
