It’s rare when the “strongest man in the world” looks like the most athletic kid in middle school.

In one of the most inappropriate movies of the ‘80s, a budding Kim Cattrall jump started puberty of youths all across America. The film required two rounds of editing to lose the X-rating that it initially received. The movie became an absolute smash hit at the box office grossing $160 million against a budget of just $4 million! Perhaps even more amazingly, the film succeeded despite terrible reviews from critics. Roger Ebert went as far as to call it one of the worst films of 1982. As always, never underestimate the simple minds of men.
