A classic of Franco Filth

Author: sirarthurstreebgreebling II from Streeb Greebling Acres
9 March 2001

Jess Franco does it again with this classic tale of abduction, preversion, rape and murder. The two strippers are taken out of prison and promised freedom if they investigate the dissapearence of an international swimmer. Their previous experience in espionage will give them the edge they need in this case. Soon they learn that the swimmers abduction is just the tip of the iceberg and that this mission is not as straight forward as it seemed. With some outrageous dialogue that i cant repeat here and a plot that will leave you reeling this is Franco at his best. Filthy, Unrepentant and Entertaining.

Pick Up Girls

Author: Michael_Elliott from Louisville, KY

Pick-Up Girls (1981)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Private Eye Al Crosby (Robert Foster) is hired to do some tracking down and he gets the help of two hookers (one played by Lina Romay). At first Crosby thinks this is your typical murder hunt but it turns out a woman has hired him to find her missing penis. You see, she was once a man and after her operation, she returned home with her penis in a jar and someone stole it. Yep, this is a Franco movie. That big revelation doesn't come to the end, which is a shame because it would have been a lot more fun if the PI was going after that instead of the murder plot we have to sit through. The story makes no sense whatsoever so the film becomes very boring. There's a great music score by Pablo Villa and Franco and of course there are countless sex scenes with all sorts of beautiful women getting naked. There's an erotic threesome at the start of the film as well. Franco is known for leaving mistakes in his films if they come off as something that might happen and one of these is the highlight in this film. During the threesome, Romay is trying to get Foster's pants off but both of them are struggling to do so and they finally break out of character and just start laughing.
