fun-loving erotic sci-fi romp....
23 November 2010 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Spaced Out is a British sex comedy directed by Norman J. Warren, better known for his cult horror movies. As with most of Warren's films, the cast is very small and the film is shot primarily on one set, in this case a spaceship. This ship happens to be piloted by three sexy female aliens who are forced to make an emergency landing on Earth. They take three humans on board and, well, that's where the fun begins! The women are young, gorgeous, sexually curious and not afraid to experiment with human reproductive techniques (all in the name of scientific discovery, of course!). It's actually done pretty tastefully and makes a joke of the fact that the man they become crazy about is young Willy, a self-confessed virgin with mild acne whose only sexual experience is masturbating while reading porno magazines. Only in British sex comedies do you have young spotty boys like Willy managing to seduce voluptuous females who wouldn't be caught dead with them in reality! Of course, this is all part of the appeal of these movies, isn't it?

Overall the film is entertaining and well acted. The sub plot of a frustrated academic dealing with his frigid fiancé is amusing and well portrayed by Barry Stokes. Stokes seems to do a Clark Kent impersonation here, complete with pushing his glasses up his nose every few seconds. Ava Cadell, who plays the ship's engineer Partha, deserves the most praise of all the women in the film... she manages to be kooky and sexy at the same time and even helps drive the plot every so often. Interestingly enough, she's now Dr Cadell, founder of the Loveology university, and offers courses in all manner of sex-related subjects.

Spaced Out is definitely one of the better sex comedy offerings that are out there. It's amusing throughout, has a smattering of sex and nudity, and comes to a surprising conclusion. Well worth watching!
