Storyline

The story about a man-sized frog named Prince Frederic who is turned into a frog by his wicked aunt Messina and hired by British Intelligence to solve the mysterious disappearances of some of Britain's greatest monuments. Several hundred years later, Freddie is now living in modern-day Paris, a six-foot-tall amphibian with the moniker Secret Agent F.R.O.7. Messina, too, is still around causing mischief, joining forces with an arch-villain named El Supremo in a scheme to shrink Big Ben. Freddie, alerted to Messina's nefarious plans, gathers his fellow agents Daffers and Scottie together, planning to hide out in Big Ben and surprise the evil doers when they are set to strike at the much-loved British landmark.

Trivia

When the movie released on VHS by MCA/Universal Home Video, they included the six-panel, four-color insert to alert consumers for six other titles to gain more consumer impressions. The titles advertised are The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure (1994) and its then-upcoming sequel The Land Before Time III: The Time of the Great Giving (1995), The Little Rascals (1994), the first six episodes of The Adventures of Timmy the Tooth (1995), the first three volumes of the animated show "Beethoven" and their upcoming reissue of the "Wee Sing" series.

Goofs

On the Scottish island, when Freddie and Scotty knock out the two guards at the entrance to the secret lair, Scotty states that they should use the guards' uniforms and face masks to camouflage themselves. Freddie has difficulty understanding the term and saying the word, which is a mistake as the word itself is French, meaning to disguise oneself. However, such a word may not have been in use during Freddie's childhood in France, but he is likely to have run across it in his several hundred years of life, and as it is a French word he should understand its meaning.

Completely, clearly insane.
10 November 2003 | by La GremlinSee all my reviews

Wow, my first new review in months. What a great one to start out on! Am I glad to see that IMDB has an entry for this completely demented movie. I was starting to doubt my own sanity.

On to the review. This is one of those movies that is way to incomprehensibly bizarre to hate. If you like insane films, and you find it in the video store, rent it and watch it. Like it's obvious soul-brother, "Sayu-Ki", it might just change your life. Just don't say I didn't warn you.
