A puzzling film
10 May 2007 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I seem to recall renting this film from Music+ about 17 years ago. I suspect I began fast-forwarding at about the ten-minute mark. A few weeks ago I caught a theatrical screening where I was forced to give it my full attention. I remembered little of it from my previous viewing. It is a strange film, full of odd, seemingly miscalculated moments. I really enjoyed it.

Surely the film's title, in the grand exploitation tradition, was tacked on to try to sell a product on the basis of something it doesn't really deliver. There is, technically, a "jailbait babysitter" in the film, but anyone expecting some underage thrills should look elsewhere. There's a bit of nudity to keep the audience from throwing things at the screen, but the story is actually an earnest drama with very little sex. It all plays out rather flatly, as our heroine gets in some trouble and runs away from home, and begins cohabitating with an absurdly benevolent prostitute. What keeps it watchable is not so much interest in the characters as the feeling of having absolutely no idea where, if indeed anywhere, the film is going. Amazing moments like the protagonist stepping in a huge pile of dog excrement, and her later tirade about same, make for unique viewing.
