Happy Hooker: The Final Chapter.

The Happy Hooker Goes Hollywood (1980) follows the "Happy Hooker" to Hollywood. Whilst in movie land she brings along her crew of prostitutes and associates. "The world's most famous madam" goes Hollywood when some sleazy studio types try to get the Madam for all she's worth. Unlike the previous two, the film-makers tried to make it campy and sexy. Another actress plays the "Happy Hooker" this time around and she also get's into the act along with her co- workers. Strange support cast featuring Adam West (who get's real close to the Madam), Phil Silvers and Richard Deacon (Fred Rutherford from Leave it to Beaver) along with the unherald Chris Lemmon.

What is there to say about this one? It's not as lame and tame as the first film but it's not as good as the second. If you ever wanted to see Adam West finally score or watch Fred Rutherford run around with a towel around his waste, then this is your picture. But if you want to watch something decent, find another film. For die hard fans of the Happy Hooker series. Not worth searching for.

Not recommended for non-fans.
