Native guides: Kong kong kong kong kong kong! Kong kong kong kong kong kong!
Ray Fay: They keep saying "Kong kong kong kong kong kong".
Luce Habit: Yes, that's true.
Ray Fay: Well, do you think this has some underlying meaning or symbolism or social significance?
Luce Habit: Perhaps it's a secret code.
Ray Fay: Maybe it's another language.
Luce Habit: Aha, you are clever. But since I speak all native languages and they speak Unga Bunga, a language popular in many old movies and the only language spoken on Lazanga where they do the Konga, I can safely say that "Kong kong ...

Undemanding fun
18 March 2007 | by (Much-Snogging-On-The-Green, East Yorkshire) – See all my reviews

Hidden away for many years, Queen Kong is finally gained a DVD release, probably to the embarrassment of the stars, but also to the joy of fans of low budget seventies comedy. The film follows the 1933 King Kong remarkably closely and has fun poking fun at many films of the time. The film is clearly not to be taken seriously and has it's tongue firmly embedded in it's cheeky cheek and is by no means difficult to sit through. The women's lib overtones are quite laughable though as there are plenty of scantily clad (no nudity though) females exploiting the gender and prancing around for the men of the audience to have a right good ogle. A lot of the jokes may be of the 'groan' variety but in my book there's no such thing as a bad pun. One particular scene that gave me a hearty chortle was where a priest on a plane decks an annoying lady passenger because of her annoying laughter, and the singing nun on the plane raised a smile too. Of course film snobs will poo-poo it as film snobs are want to do and that's fine. It's not a film made for them, but for those who like ever-so-slightly risqué knockabout farces will get a lot from it. And from a strictly male point of view, any film that has Valerie Leon in a skimpy bikini for the entire length of it has to add a little something. It also looks better than it should do really, even if the white cliffs of Dover are now to be found on the African coast.
