Sad to say, they don’t even make Andy Sidaris movies the way they used to. For 15 or so years, Sidaris leavened his regular gig as a director for ABC Sports with a series of wonderfully brain-dead action films, shot largely at his vacation home in Molokai, Hawaii, and featuring preposterous espionage plots and a cast of ex-Playmates and former Mr. Universes who between them may have kept the silicone and steroid industries afloat.
