See "Jailbait Babysitter" instead, 10 December 2007
Author: lazarillo from Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile

This is another 1970's "sex-with-the-babysitter" movies (the best of these probably being "Jailbait Babysiiter" made a few years later). They don't make these kind of movies today, and personally I wouldn't want to see them if they did (after you reach a certain age you may still harbor a nostalgic attraction for the teenage girls of your own youth, but that doesn't mean that you really want to see modern-day teens having sex with anybody). That's not to say that this movie is all that racy. There's some nudity, and some gratuitous showering and spanking. The character is underage, but I don't think the unknown actress actually was.

The real problem with this movie is how shamelessly it pandered to the perverts of the day. The male protagonist is very middle-aged, bordering on elderly--a lot more likely to have grand-kids than kids, and hardly any teenage girl's dream date. He even gets to be a hero when he rescues his unfaithful wife from the clutches of a vicious drug dealer, thus morally glossing over the whole infidelity and statutory rape issue. I liked "Jailbait Babysitter" better because it was told from the perspective of the girl and the middle-age lech in that one is treated to a heart attack(!) rather than to hero status. Neither is very realistic, of course, but even blatant moral hypocrisy is preferable to this kind of sleazy pandering.

Two things are of interest about this otherwise forgettable movie though. It was directed by Tom McLoughlin, old "Billy Jack" himself, a guy who(perhaps erroneously)was considered in touch with the "youth culture" of the day (making it all the more curious why this movie is told from the perspective of the middle-aged codger). And the gangster's sleazy girlfriend is played by Anik Borel, an interesting European actress who appeared in the ludicrous trash-cult favorite "Werewolf Woman" because the director thought she had a face like a wolf (albeit with a body to die for). There's absolutely nothing else to recommend this though. See "Jailbait Babysitter" instead.
