The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik Yak

Ladies and Gentlemen, guest co-host Ralph the Dino Guy, on this 24th of January's BM: 

Yikety Yak – Don’t Talk Back

1984 / 106 minutes / unrated

Gwendoline (Tawny Kitaen) escapes from a convent and sneaks herself way into the Far East, with the help of her serving girl, Beth (Zabou Breitman). Gwendoline hopes to find her missing father, who has traveled into an unexplored land called the Yik Yak in search of a new species of butterfly. An innocent stranger in a very strange land, Gwendoline enlists the reluctant help of local tough guy and adventurer, Willard (Brent Huff), to lead her and Beth into deadly territory.

From there, it's one scrape after another for our heroes, including kung fu battles with slave traders, a showdown with some pirates, a fake-looking crocodile, superstitiously cannibalistic natives, poisonous desert winds, and more. Eventually, Gwendoline and company find a mysterious hidden city … made up entirely of women — vicious, dangerous women…

(summary courtesy DVD Verdict)

A French adult fantasy adventure film based on a popular comic book heroine, The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik Yak has been described as Barbarella meets Indiana Jones. It plays out much like an inept live-action interpretation of a Heavy Metal comic, but it is (surprisingly) much less graphic. Even so, if you find the human form offensive, you are advised to watch something else.

    Wow. That really was full of boobies - and a replacement for Reb Brown (sorry dude, you never got quite that naked!).

      Jeff, I grew up in Oregon, have lived in Cali for a long time. Never heard any part of a woman's body called a yik nor a yak. Where the heck are YOU from !!! lol Well, gonna go take a shower, maybe I'll find those items.

    • Diane

      I've heard a gay guy call it the ick, yuck.

      January 26, 2014

  • Brenda

    I can see by all these insane messages, we were OD'd on bacon. Man, he had a good butt! I just love man butts as much as you guys love girl boobs!

    January 25, 2014

    • Jeff

      Never underestimate the appeal of girl butts.

      January 26, 2014

    • Brenda

      Jeff, you are a good man. You're right -- girl butts are nice indeed, too. I'm so glad I have an abundant supply of all the necessary parts!

    Mike, I grew up eating horse meat, initially my mom told us it was beef. Very lean, tender, tastier than beef. And when she told us our dinner was veal -- it was Rocky Mountain Oysters! But again, yummy and tasty! What a trickster she was. You can see I survived tho. Errr, right? Right? I'm not a Zombie. Am I? Naaah.

    Thank you BMNers for trying out BACON-flavored popcorn and drank cups of BACON soda. =0)

    January 25, 2014

    • Victor C.

      bacon on popcorn works. Bacon in soda... not so much... :-P

      January 26, 2014

    • Mike

      Well, I hope some people enjoyed the bacon-flavored horse jerky that I brought.

      January 26, 2014

  • Brenda

    Boobies, thongs, monkey, breasts, booties, bacon, pictures -- hmmm -- anybody dropping in mid-conversation would really wonder!! But WE know. hehehehe. What fun! Did anybody get brave enough to pop the top on the bacon beer? ewww

    January 25, 2014

    • Victor C.

      and horsies. Anyone eavesdropping probably already knows we're nuts. Anyway, it was good seeing you all again, and meeting a few new faces.

    there was one scene where I know he was massaging a man's breast. no way that belonged to a women. I've seen bigger breasts on chickens.

    January 25, 2014

  • Mike

    Ohhhhh, so THAT's what breasts look like. That was some mighty fine voice dubbing.

      Yes, awesome photos. I like the shoe booties!!

      To think I've been wasting my time with glamorous babes as models. From now on I'll just work with Russell. It'll give a whole new meaning to booty shot.

    Watching bad movies in good company always makes for an enjoyable evening. Boobs can't hurt either.

    January 25, 2014

    • Jeff

      I liked the monkey and the thongs. Which, I realize, is the first time in my life I've ever used those two words in the same sentence.

      January 25, 2014

    • Diane

      REALLY, Jeff? Cuz I totally would've pegged you as a guy who'd have said he liked the monkey in the thong, at least once, before. ;-}

    Sorry I have to drop out last minute! I was really looking forward to seeing what the hell a Yik Yak is anyways. Oh, and watching everyone puke bacon soda.

    January 24, 2014

  • Mike

    I assume you've heard the bad news. Are we still actually getting together tomorrow, or postponing?

    January 23, 2014

    • David L.

      Brenda; the reason sailors have a poop deck is that they need a place to insert their mast.

      January 24, 2014

    • Brenda

      oh---I see ---- well now I have so many more questions we do not have time to address them all here -- hmmm---

      January 24, 2014

  • Russell G.

    I'll be bringing BACON soda-pop & BACON-flavored popcorn.

    January 19, 2014

    • Mike

      "Soda-pop". Remind me to ask you where you're from originally.

    Despite the Captain & Tenille break up tragedy and the worldwide shortage of muskrat love, we'll still meet tomorrow night. I've emailed my address to attendees. After giving it a little time, if it doesn't reach you & you need it, please post here, and I'll try again. (But check that it didn't land in your junk mail first)

    OMG! -- Are you telling me that C & T are gonners? Pushing up daisies? 6' under (or perhaps less in the Captain's case)? What did they die of -- terminal lack of interest on the part of anything living?

    January 23, 2014

  • Brenda

    ooo Victor, stop horsing around! You're just bacon up trouble!

    January 21, 2014

    • Brenda

      Gretchen dear, you have to be present to be shot. Naah, we'll keep you around for a while, what a waste to shoot such a lovely filly.

    auugggh I don't know what to bring... put me down for meat-lover's pizza. not enough BACON to be a serious Presidential contender (sniffle).

    And to think I'll be missing out on all this fine cuisine & entertainment just to go off and learn about horses..."whoa" is me!!!

      Folks, you need to rein it in, before you stirrup some trouble.

      January 21, 2014

    • Brenda

      Mike, be careful! You might get lassoed and all tied up! All of us are trouble makers for sure.

    Obviously, it'll take some effort to work up to the level of sophistication of this group! Meanwhile, I'll bring some diet soda to keep us all well-lubricated (which, I suppose, means different things to different people).

    January 21, 2014

    • Mike

      If, by "work up to", you mean sink down to, then yes.

      January 21, 2014

    • Brenda

      Mike, Mike, tsk tsk, work up to? Sink Down? And Steve--well lubricated? You guys are certainly horrid! Or maybe that's just wonderful. lol.

      January 21, 2014

  • Brenda

    OK, label me stoooopid, but I can't figure out the connection between this movie and bacon!! Naked people?

    January 20, 2014

    • Russell G.

      People like to bring cookies, soda, chips, etc., the usual stuff for potlucks. I want to bring something that's "adventurous" and food & beverage items that Unite with BACON is an adventure BMNers will never forget. =0]

      January 21, 2014

    • Brenda

      So true, Emily, SO true. On the rare side is the best!

      January 21, 2014

    I'm going to probably bring home made fries, there
    a recipe I've been wanting to try! We can pretend they're bacon strips!

    "... if you find the human form offensive, you are advised to watch something else." There is good naked and bad naked, which one are we talking about?

    December 30, 2013

    • Diane

      I'd find the human farm offensive if soylent green wasn't so damned delicious.

      December 30, 2013

    • Mike

      'K, I'll bring soylent green crackers.
