I've been meaning to post these for a while, kept forgetting... then I saw the movie again and it reminded me

In "The 40 Year-old Virgin" the fellows take Steven Carell to a tiki bar to pick up on chicks. Here's a couple of screen caps.





The same tiki is used in several locations throughout the scene. It's as if it's following the guys around. It reappears later when they join the batchelorette party but is in a different spot facing a new direction.

There's a Tiki necklace in the new "Lilo & Stitch" movie, Leroy & Stitch:



Plus various Tikis & Hawaiian images, including a "Tiki Bowl" concert venue.

Lot's of tiki, great scenery, and The Duke in the classic "Donovan's Reef". I got a copy on DVD from Overstock.com. It co-stars Lee Marvin along with Jack Warden, and the original Joker: Cesar Romero.

I was bored this weekend watching tv and was watching "Spy Hard" with Leslie Nielsen. There's a scene in front of a museum that has 4 or 5 tikis out in front of it.

I was watching "Teenage Sex Kittens" from 1972 earlier today. You may have heard of it. It stars some pretty famous actors who were synonomous with the best of American Cinema of the 1970s; most notably, Lilly Lovetree, Threda Bara, Doug Farbank and Long Hangey. The reason I was watching this movie is that I was looking for a small sample of pretty 1970s instrumental music that I could attach to an E-Card to my dear old grandmother for her birthday at the nursing home. I wasn't really watching what was going on, because the movie is somewhat pornographic and frankly I'm not interested in that, being a guy and all.

Anyway, our four heroes are driving to Palm Springs so that the enterprising young ladies can set up some kind of business venture in one of the hotels to make a little money. This is all highly laudable. So they're driving down the main drag and the camera pans on each hotel they drive by. Suddenly, I see this sign, (oh by the way, the movie has German subtitles, which is useful in understanding some of the sex scenes):



Well needless to say, I was so suprised at what I was seeing that I leapt to my feet and promptly tripped on my pants which were around my ankles. (ha ha! Just kidding. My pants weren't really around my ankles. That would be silly. Actually I wasn't wearing pants at all).

As the camera continued its pan, we can see the Sambos restaurant attached to the Tropics Motel, which sadly, was torn down years ago, and replaced with a Mexican restaurant, much like my morals:



Next, we see that classic entrance to the Tropics motor court, home to many wonderful times at Tiki Oasis. Strangely, the same camper is still parked there today:









Well, needless to say, after that nice bit of foreplay, I was so strung-out that I could barely light my cigarette. Unfortunately there was no release though. Our heroines chose a completely different hotel in which to set up their "business", a place called "Harlow's Hideaway" or something like that. So they completely missed the chance to have the orgy scene take place in room 135 of the Tropics, with Al bartending and King Kukulele playing Hawaiian Cowboy, which we all know from experience makes any orgy a really special event. Oh well. I guess you can't have your porn and tiki too.

So in conclusion, I highly recommend "Teenage Sex Kittens". I give it four, fully-erect tikis plus one semi-flacid tiki. Top-knotch entertainment!

Saboom-boom chicka-bau-bau, The Coconut Boy.

I thoroughly enjoyed your movie review, Sabu, and I'm looking forward to more in the future. Those subtitles aren't German, though. I think they may be Finnish.

Last night we watched "Failure to Launch" with Matthew McConaghey and Sarah Jessica Parker. Early in the film there's a barbecue where several couples are discussing their kids who've not moved out and one couple is *really* getting affectionate with each another. Their son had moved out and they'd been off rekindling their spark - including the Mom getting a tiki tattoo on her chest of "Lono - he's the god of fertility."

All told, it still wasn't worth the time to watch the film!

Right On! I too am convinced that 1970s porn movies are one of the last, great, untapped sources of Tiki Archeology. And since such research is important to you, Sweet Daddy Tiki, (nice adult film name, btw), I will make it important to me as well.

That makes much more sense, Sweet Daddy Tiki, (awesome porn name). Knowing that the language is Finnish makes the following scenes much easier to understand:

that movie is so NOT WORTH even the slightest trace of tikis in it--it is SUBPAR porn and the WORST 'acting' ever --even for softcore standards! Trust me--as a former owner and re-seller on ebay of this product---STAY AWAY. It is the most predictable crap EVER and the tikis are there JUST to suck us tiki types in..that said, I do recall a couple of decent dance sequences

I recently rented the old TV show "Son of the Beach" on DVD.

If you have never seen it, it was/is a parody of Bay Watch and was very well written, it poke fun at everything Bay Watch and was pretty funny and risque for TV at the time.

Volume One, Disk 1 has an episode called "Two thongs don't make a right". The religous right and the mayor conspire to ban thongs from the beach. While every one is busy enforcing or protesting the ban, a little boy falls in a hole and almost dies. The episode ends with an beach party dance number called "Do the thong, shake your naked booty all night long". There is a tiki bar and a huge stone Maoi head in the background. Anyone know where it was filmed?

Here are some screen shots, sorry about the quality.
The full Moai head is not in the frame for very long.

I never really get to this side of TC very often but it's pretty interesting. I cant say too much (Top Secret!) but in the new movie "Snakes on a Plane" starring Samuel L. Jackson which is huge right now on the internet and it isn't even out yet, they filmed some here in Vancouver BC. We were contacted to do a movie rental and they rented a bunch of items from my collection and a couple of our original pieces from our business, Taboo Tiki.
They did this part in the Vancouver Airport where they convereted it to look like a Hawaiian airport and they got a bunch of our stuff in there for set decor. Pretty damn cool but it is not out yet so dont know what it looks like yet. Knowing how these rentals work, you probably wont see a thing but who knows. Maybe someone gets shot or bitten to death on one of our Tiki poles!! That would be cool but probably not!
Thought some of you might want to check it out as there is alot of hype about this movie coming out! So keep your eyes open!!
Mahalo, TabooDan

Man, I hope the Disney copyright people don't come after me...

Here are some screenshots of the 1966 Disney movie Lt. Robin Caruso, USN. A hilarious, hi-jinx filled movie starring Dick Van Dyke and Nancy Kwan.

A tiki hut. What, no A-frame?


The great Tiki


The great Tiki part 2


Nancy Kwan as Wednesday. She is awesome!


Nancy Kwan and Dick van Dyke.


The natives are restless. Never saw Tiki masks like these.
