Fun Franco

Two Female Spies with Flowered Panties (1980)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A sexual crazy couple kidnap a young girl (Susan Hemmingway) and begin to sexually torture and rape her but have no fear because two strippers (Lina Romay, Nadine Pascal) are on the case. This is a rather crazy and silly Franco caper that spoofs various genres but mainly the detective films of the 1940s. There's a lot of humor, a lot of sex and of course a whole bunch of naked women running around. If you're offended easily then you'll certainly want to skip this film as the "funny gay man" character is on full blast here. Normally this character is played by Franco but he doesn't do the part this time but that doesn't mean the humor comes any cleaner. The stereotype of this gay character is so outrageous and politically incorrect that you can't help but laugh your ass off. The highlight of the film is a scene where one of the strippers rapes him on a couch. Hearing his scream, in that stereotype voice, is just downright funny even if you're squinting her eyes at the same time. The film also features some of the worst striptease scenes in film history but a couple of these are played as jokes.

A colorful title for an awful film

Ah, "Two Female Spies With Flowered Panties"! What could go wrong, right? Everything, as it turns out. The incredibly prolific Jess Franco was never a great director, but by the early 1980s it seem that he couldn't even be bothered to make the slightest effort anymore; he just threw some naked women on the screen and thought that would be enough. It's hard to know what's more boring in this movie: the endless rape scenes, the endless striptease scenes, the endless helicopter flying scenes, or the endless biker-hippie (!) scenes. To be perfectly honest, I was forced to watch parts of the film in fast-forward because I just couldn't bear it anymore; it didn't help much. Even if you are a fan of Franco, pick something else from his filmography - God knows there are other options out there! 0 out of 4 stars.
