A movie so bad - it's good.
2 February 1999 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

The Chapman Report, a thinly disguised take on the Kinsey Report, offers a chance to see four well-regarded actresses when they were young and bad -- especially Jane Fonda, before she learned to act.

The film is divided into the stories of four women, each with her own sexual problem as defined by the male writers. Fonda plays a young widow who is (gasp) frigid. Her performance is so stiff, she must've thought they said rigid.

The beautiful and talented Claire Bloom, who should have known better, plays a repressed nymphomaniac and has to go mad. Shelley Winters is the bored housewife who has an unhappy affair and has to crawl back to her dumpy husband. (It's hard to watch Shelley doing that.) Delightful Glynis Johns comes off best in a (purposely) comedic role of a screwball socialite "experimenting" with a young stud.

The whole thing is ridiculous, but fun to watch if you're in the right mood.
