When TRADER HORNEE was released, I was just a little kid and never heard of it back then. Flash forward to today, I had to check this infamous nudie comedy because I basically rent anything from Something Weird. It's odd to think that 30 years or so ago a lot of people were probably offended by these kinds of movies like TRADER HORNEE, which, by standards, looks positively cute and quaint compared to all the sleazy stuff seen on cable or satellite networks. Heck, it looks positively quaint next to Russ Meyer's stuff.
The cast is game and the whole production is barely adequate and not spectacular (as opposed to what the extremely long trailer on the DVD says. A cast of thousand?!?!). TRADER HORNEE is for nostalgia buffs who have seen it before and want to see it again; for anyone who likes a lot of derriere shots of average looking women (or black men); and John Alderman in black bikini briefs.
