Interesting, but ruined by awful comedy
29 May 2005 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

I just watched this film today, and while the scenes where they show "authentic" footage from around the world was interesting to see (if maybe not 100% accurate), the entire film was ruined by the "low-brow" Italian comedians Franco & Ciccio. Franco especially mugged and overacted to a degree that I've never seen before in my entire life; he made Jerry Lewis at his worst look like he was on horse tranquilizers in comparison. Jayne doesn't exactly do a great job of acting herself either. She comes off as her generation's version of Anna Nicole Smith. So, I wouldn't recommend getting the Something Weird DVD this appears on (along with Mondo Balardo) as Balardo isn't worth seeing, and like I said, the painful comedy ruins Primitive Love.
