Sheena (1984)

How bad is it? It's one of the worst film adaptations of a comic book.
Should you see it? No.

This had a budget of $26 million, or more than a thousand times what most films on this blog had. Tanya Roberts isn't believable as the queen of the jungle; she isn't really believable as a blonde. She plays it innocent - when she first sees a shirtless man, she says, "You have fur!" which only draws attention to her own shaving. Ted Wass and Donovan Scott play newsreel cameramen who stumble upon the heroine, who can talk to animals. Most of the film is a long chase sequence. The best parts: a helicopter is attacked by flamingos, a horse is painted to look like a zebra (you really can't ride a zebra!) and, of course, there's Tanya in a leather halter top.
