The Lunatic ★★ 1992 (R)

A robust, oversexed, and scheming German tourist travels to Jamaica where she meets the village idiot, a man who regularly holds conversations with the local plants. The two hook up with a butcher, and the three live happily in the hills, that is until the money is gone. The Jamaican scenery, a few bawdy laughs, and a great reggae soundtrack make this one worthwhile. 93m/C VHS . GB Julie Wallace, Paul Campbell, Reggie Carter, Carl Bradshaw; D: Lol Creme; M: Wally Badarou.
