The film begins with a group of people out in Africa. One of them arrives all battered and bruised & claims that he found 'the lost city.' Guess we'd better get to changing the name! Unfortunately, two of the men are killed, leaving the third to flee...into the hands of some Nazis. The lead Nazi woman (Maud Adams) sends orders for the Brits to be intercepted before they can get over and try to find the place for themselves. Her lead henchmen (picture a more annoying Tony Hale) sends his brother to do the job, but he doesn't have much luck. At this point, you get a glimpse of the level of humor the film has planned for you. First, the man is foiled by the old 'someone opens the door as you approach it' bit and later by the woman accidentally causing the anchor to drop. We also get the most notable running joke with Jane: her dress keeps getting ripped off. She's always wearing the same bra and panties set when it happens too, so she either has 1,000 pairs of that or never washes them. Eww. It happens when a random guy in a cast is brought by and lightly touches her. It looks faker than the infamous bit from Future War!
After meeting up with a bad Churchill impersonator, the woman, her lead General and his butler go off to Africa. Mid-flight, the pilot leaves and reveals that he is the other twin brother of the Nazi henchman. Yeah, they're doing that joke. He kicks all of the parachutes out and leaps out, but grabs the cooking equipment instead of one for himself. Our heroine manages to crash the plane into the ocean & the trio ends up on the beach. In an odd moment, the butler wonders aloud about how they got there, since he can't swim. Um, what? Everything goes alright until they are surrounded by killer Africans, only to be saved by 'Jungle Jack' (Jones). In another odd moment, Jane lies about their reason for being there- it is a secret mission, after all- and says that they are hunters. 'Jack' freaks out and insults them...until the General tells him the truth about 1 minute later. What was the point of that then?!? At a hotel, we get a parody of Psycho when the woman is stalked in the shower by the dumb Nazi. In the next room, a new, tougher henchman goes to kill the General, but slips on the soap and slides about 20 feet, knocks down the other Nazi and crashes through a wall. That's either a good balancing act or some strong soap! Jack gets captured by the Nazis and they figure out where the city is...sort of.
