Please, do not watch this if you are taking it seriously. Joke (?) aside, it's one to pass without feeling guilty.
But if you have some spare time, it's a pre-Code movie, so it's kinda interesting to watch with that in mind.
Other than that, it really isn't a good movie.

And I've spared words, honestly. There's more lousiness to discuss from the beginning of the movie until the end, from the meeting with the natives to the relationship between Johnny and Luana, as well as Luana with her peers... It's 1932, after all. If we have gender and representative issues nowadays, you can wonder bout back then.
