2nd in the "Ginger" series
25 May 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is the second film in the "Ginger" series, and Bridgette Bardot look-alike Cheri Caffaro is back, this time as a private investigator hired to infiltrate a ring of white slave traders.

The film opens with a blonde woman (we'll call her a "stewardess"), wearing only her panties with her arms shackled behind her back, being thrown in a small cell. Next, 3 blonde girls (we'll call them "Cheerleaders") are kidnapped and taken to a strange building where they are stripped down to their panties and have their arms shackled behind their backs (seems to be a recurring pattern). They are then told by the kidnappers that they are going to be used as sex slaves, and when the girls resist they are turned to face a curtain. The chief bad-guy pulls back the curtain and behind the glass we see the stewardess suspended like a hammock in the air, still wearing her panties but squirming quite a bit. It seems that the stewardess had resisted the bad-guys, too. Shocked at the sight, the girls cower and agree to become sex slaves. The reason why the girls were allowed to keep their panties on? As a sign of their submission, they must present their panties to the kidnappers.

Ginger is called onto the case to track down the disappearance of the females, and she launches her investigation by becoming bait for the kidnappers (well, actually she gets another girl to be the bait but they both end up getting kidnapped). At various points in the movie Ginger and her sidekick end up naked, bound, and having sex with the kidnappers. But don't worry, our hero always gets her man.

This installment of the series is much better than the first film ("Ginger") since it had a higher budget to work with. More money = more chicks, more bad guys, more "B" movie bondage/adventures. And since this film was made before the age of silicone implants, they're real (and they're spectacular).

In today's period of conservative politics, feminism, Moral Majority, and sexual restraint (a by-product of the AIDS scare), it's a pretty good bet that no movie series will ever be made quite like the "Ginger" series. Sure, there are X-rated bondage films out there, but none will ever be the "B" movie fare that this film series is.
