the oh-no! DVD of the week: ‘Little Hercules’

It gets a big fat oh-no! for trying to ride on Clash of the Titans’ coattails, of course, but also for this: It stars Hulk Hogan as Zeus.

Excuse me: It stars “renowned WWE wrestler Terry ‘Hulk’ Hogan”:

Starring renowned WWE wrestler Terry “Hulk” Hogan as the King of the Gods, Zeus, this action-packed movie about a boy with big challenges and even bigger dreams comes to life with 3D imaging.

Little Hercules in 3D tells the story of the mighty Greek warrior before his twelve labors led him to battle the most fearsome creatures in mythology. As a 12-year-old demigod, Hercules leaves his father Zeus on Mount Olympus in order to experience life on Earth as a “real” boy— landing in modern-day Burbank, California. Using his superhuman strength and time-leaping abilities, “Little” Hercules engages in misadventures of epic proportions that will have the entire family laughing and cheering.

“If you like an action-adventure comedy that you can watch with your kids, then you will love Little Hercules,” said Terry “Hulk” Hogan. “I had fun making it with my family and I know you will enjoy watching it with yours. And once you see it in 3D you won’t want to watch a film in 2D again!”

But wait! You also get star turns by Robin Givens, Elliott Gould, John Heard, and Judd Nelson! All in the directorial debut of Mohamed Khashoggi, and about time, too.

Today, alas, sees the release only of the 2D version of the film. If you want it in 3D — and who doesn’t! — you’ll have to wait till April 27, and then you’ll have to buy it at Wal-Mart. Because that’s where the gods prefer to shop.

Hey, if Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can be a movie star and Jessie “The Body” Ventura* can be the Governor of Minnesota, who are we to keep the Hoganator down?

*Full disclosure: I’m originally from MN, though I left long before that election – but I think my Mom might have voted for him. And I kinda like Mr. Johnson – wish he’d find a good movie to make use of his charisma.
