For Your Height Only

In honor of James Bond week, I decided to review some of the more obscure James Bond films and Rip-offs and next up is: For Your Height Only.

For your height only is 1981 Filipino spy comedy staring 2’9 actor Weng Weng.

The plot involves Agent OO (Weng) rescuing Dr. Kahler who’s been kidnapped by the nefarious Mr. Giant* and is planning to use his latest invention, The N-Bomb in his quest to take over the world.

That plot is almost irrelevant.
You see both Mr. Giant and Dr. Kahler in the beginning and end of the film.
The rest of the movie seems like it was cobbled together from parts of an unrelated Filipino knock off of lethal weapon.
There’s at least 5 other baddies that have some sort of drug smuggling operation going on and the only connection to the main plot is that every woman Agent OO sleeps with is an undercover operative trying to bust them.

It’s odd.
Not that there’s no connection to the plot but that there’s enough women who wanted to be cast as the love interested of Weng Weng.
I’m serious. It felt like every woman who auditioned was written into the movie.

If you were to turn this movie into a drinking game and you took a shot every time he:
A=Seduced women with his Filipino charm
B=Disco
C=Punched someone in the dick
E=Movie made a joke about his height
F=All of the above

You would be dead.
Stone cold dead.

Agent OO may get more action than James Bond.

Literally and figuratively.
Every Five minutes Weng is punching someone in the dick or using one of his gadgets.

-Pendant That’s a two way microphone.

-A Hat that’s remote controlled and has blades affixed around the edges.

-A tiny gun.

-A Pen that’s some how special.
(He never uses it. Unless it’s to get more lady numbers)

-A ring that detects poison.

-X-Ray specs

-And the most adorable tiny jetpack:

^Adorable

All in all, For your height only is surprisingly fun action romp that i was never bored with.
But don’t play the drinking game.

*Mr. Giant turns out to also be a dwarf.
What a twist!
