The Hercules family has moved into a new home in Venice, California. In the basement is a door they are forbidden to open, but daughter Frenchy (Maria-Pascale Elfman) does not heed the warning, opens the door, and steps inside. She has entered the Sixth Dimension where she catches the eye of King Fausto (Herve Villechaize). But, Queen Doris (Susan Tyrrell) becomes jealous and puts Frenchy in a prison cell with the Ex-Queen (Viva). Now, Frenchy's fate rests with her brother Flash (Phil Gordon) and Grampa Hercules (Hyman Diamond) who try to rescue her. When they fail, her friend Squeezit Henderson (Matthew Bright) steps in, but many problems lie ahead. Music by the Mystic Knights Of The Oingo Boingo–whose founder, Richard Elfman, directed this film.

In this ninth James Bond flick, Agent 007 (Roger Moore) ends up in Hong Kong, Thailand, and the South China Sea tracking down hit man Scaramanga (Christopher Lee) who uses custom-made gold bullets. A local British Intelligence agent, Mary Goodnight (Britt Ekland), in her own clumsy way, tries to come to Bond's aid. But, her efforts often turn out to be more destructive than constructive in Bond's mission to thwart Scaramanga. Not one of the best of the Bond films, but there are some great stunts.
