Os Trapalhões na Guerra Dos Planetas

Oh, how I yearn to see this Brazillian Star Wars rip-off. Surely one for my cult cinema list.

When Italy remade Star Wars (Star Crash, 1979), they turned the character of Chewbacca into a sexy, sexy woman in a bikini and added David Hasselhoff. In Turkey, they turned Luke and Han into kung fu masters forced to battle armies of oversized fuzzy muppets while on trampolines (Dunyayi Kurtaran Adam, 1982). But in Brazil, they kept Star Wars more or less the way it was and just threw in four wacky idiots from Earth.

I have not seen Hasselhoff's performance in Scontri Stellari Oltre La Terza Dimensione but, sadly, I have seen Dunyayi Kurtaran Adam.
