Description by OLDIES.com:
Inhabiting the heart of the treacherous Southern California Avocado Belt are the Piranha Women, a tribe of man-eaters as fierce and deadly as they are beautiful and seductive. Noted anthropologist Margo Hunt (Shannon Tweed) and her wisecracking guide (Bill Maher) embark on a hilarious journey through the jungle in hope of finding the long-lost Dr. Kurtz (Adrienne Barbeau).
A noted anthropologist embarks on a search for the long-lost Dr. Kurtz. Accompanied by her assistant Bunny and wisecracking guide, their journey takes them into the treacherous Avocado Belt, where the Piranha women live.
Spoof of mindless, macho, male action/adventure movies, about a beautiful professor and anthropologist, her dumb student assistant, and male chauvinist guide, who are sent to hunt down a tribe of man-eating feminist women, called the Piranhas, living in a jungle rainforest in San Bernardino, California.
