Jayne's wild wild world!
18 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a hoot as we have our beautiful and glamorous Jaynie playing "herself" but as an anthropologist who shows her "professor" footage (some of it actual) of the mating habits of tribes and people all across the world. There are a couple of scenes that are not for the faint of heart as a chicken and a pig are sacrificed in some mating rituals. But of course, we have two dance numbers where the beautiful La Mansfield shakes her groove thing! There is a comic pair in this much like Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin. They don't get on your nerves as much as has been reported and they are actually rather cute. The DVD version of this movie is almost like being in the actual theater. The film gets a 10 for one reason, Jayne Mansfield. We are even given a treat as she does a variation of her famous 1963 'Satire On The Strip'.
