Something Weird included the trailer with its DVD issue of ADAM LOST HIS APPLE, and it proves how unscrupulous its filmmakers were regarding their Adult theater audience. An insulting film that falls into the so-called "nudie cutie" genre but merely reveals how pointless that categorization is.

Picture basically resembles an extremely dull documentary though it scrupulously avoids the hoary clichés of the nudist camp movies that were obviously its competition for both bookings and audiences back in 1965.

Hero Gene Berk, familiar from nudist camp assignments including a memorable casting opposite Blaze Starr, portrays a wisecracking photographer/millionaire tapped by the Bahamas tourist bureau to shoot a short promotional film extolling the vacation wonders of the outer islands. Film cruelly drags out his small talk and non-adventures, mostly shooting the breeze with his girlfriend Joan (who he keeps calling affectionately over & over "sexpot" and buddies as he entertains on his yacht, killing (running) time.

It is fully 38 minutes into this hour-long feature until the audience sees some skin - two nudist girls (obviously magazine models) romping in the surf in the altogether with a husband to one of them. The odd girl out, who has big floppy natural breasts, is of course eventually fixed up with our hero. There is no sex, just endless smooching with fully clothed girl friend Joan and watching the other girls, one of which has silicone implants very early in that cycle, show their assets including their posteriors.

We also have to suffer through the same old speeches extolling the virtues of nudism that bored audiences of the time to death watching British, European or Florida nudist camp epics. That's why porn used to be called "skin flicks", though ADAM skimps on such valuable content.

Rarely has a sex-related film been so boring - there are shots lasting minutes not just seconds devoted to the yacht leaving or entering a harbor just to pad the movie. The banter is horrendous, with dumb jokes and sarcasm flying from a universally talented cast. The only bright moment in the entire hour comes when a British lady manning the information service office in Nassau does a Bob Newhart style comedy phone routine with an idiotic caller who wonders why Britain doesn't give the Bahamas to the United States. By the end of the call she wishes they had.

Ineptitude is probably the reason ADAM is so bad, since even the hero's name changes over the course of the proceedings from Ken Lewis to Ken Stanley. The joke, stressed in both the script and the trailer, about losing one's apple went over my head - I know of the Adam and Eve story and I know the vernacular of losing one's cherry but amusing it ain't.

Film's ending is the final insult, a sort of "lady or the tiger" twist involving our happily sexist hero which would have earned a loud Bronx cheer from me had I been unfortunate enough to have been trapped in a theater unspooling ADAM some 50 years ago.
