THE SHRIMP ON THE BARBIE (1990) CHEECH MARIN/EMMA SAMMS
The Land Down Under is thrown asunder when Cheech Marin ("Born In East L.A.", “Rude Awakening”) ventures into the world of koalas, kangaroos and “G’Day” greetings - and uproarious pandemonium ensues! Cheech is Carlos Munoz, who becomes a hapless partner in a struggling Mexican restaurant. Then one night, beautiful Alex Hobart (Emma Samms of TV's “Dynasty”) waltzes in to change his fortunes - and his life! As the daughter of the richest man in Australia, her wedding plans go disastrously awry when her father forbids her marriage...but agrees to accept her next choice in a husband. And, determined to change her father’s mind, Alex need look no further than across the room for a suitable alternate - the bumbling, uncouth Carlos! The resulting laughs and surprises are as big as Australia’s Great Outback in this hilarious romantic comedy caper!
Also starring Vernon Wells, Bruce Spence and Carole Davis.
