Storyline

This kicks off with the murder of one Adolf Schwartz (who bears a striking resemblance to another famous Adolf) by placing a ravenous piranha fish in his bathtub. Who did it? No-one knows or cares, as they're too busy being distracted by busty Margo Winchester, who hitch-hikes into# town and gets involved with all the local men. It all ends with a series of complicated plot twists that reveal that just about everyone is really someone else. And if it gets too confusing, Russ Meyer helpfully arranges for a one- woman nude Greek chorus to pop up at intervals to explain what's going on.

Up there with the best of Meyer's work!
30 December 2007 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

It's clear from the outset that Up! is going to be in extremely bad taste - and the rest of the film certainly doesn't disappoint! This film was made later in Meyer's career and is more along the lines of Supervixens and Beyond the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens rather than Beyond the Valley of the Dolls and Vixen - and that's OK with me. Naturally the plot doesn't make a lot of sense and seems more like an excuse for lots of buxom women to take their clothes off - and again, that's OK with me! There is a slim plot line in this film - revolving around the murder of a man named Adolf, who looks a lot like Hitler. This plot is rather inconsequential, however - a buxom blonde narrator pops up ever now and then to remind us the film has a murder backdrop, but it's hardly the main focus of the film. The film really focuses on the absolutely stunning Margo Winchester, a sexy lady who waltzes into town shortly after the murder and gets into a scuffle with a man who tries to pick up her up, and ends up killing him. The local cop gets her out of trouble, and she takes a job at a local cafe...

Russ Meyer endows his film with a truly surreal style, and that helps to ensure that Up is the hilarious fun time that it is intended to be. As is usually the case with Meyer films, it is not the plot or the style of the film that is the main standout, but the beautiful lead actress and this film is certainly no different as it features the hottest of all Meyers stars, Raven De La Croix. This girl is absolutely amazing and pretty much makes the film worth watching on her own, the fact that the rest of it is so good only increases the appeal of Up. The narrator idea comes off as being a bit corny, but it fits in well with the style of the film and the way that the topless girl telling the story goes about her business never fails to amuse. The fact that the film stars a Hitler look-alike might make you think that Meyer has some sort of point to make - but if he did, I didn't catch it. It all boils down to a hilarious ending that sees the women show off their assets, and it turns out that nobody is quite what they seem - the final revelation is the best! Overall, Up isn't my favourite Meyer movie, but it's a very good one and comes highly recommended!
