So bad it's good (almost)
7 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Possibly one of the ten-worst movies ever made, 'Boob Tube' was a drive- in staple during the mid-70's. Seeing it was a rite of passage for horny guys in their coming-of-age years. Has a heavy nostalgia factor.

The acting is purposely over the top in a vain attempt at being hilariously funny. My score: three smiles, two chuckles. Perhaps part of the problem is that the jokes, mostly sex-related double entendres,could have been written by a junior high student. Or maybe they were. Who knows?

The story line, if you want to call it that, revolves around, well, sex and boobs. No surprise there. It is presented in a bunch of loosely related short segments ala 'Kentucky Fried Movie'. Recommended to lovers of drive-in drivel or late baby boomers wanting to re-live their ribald past.
