Exactly What You'd Expect
23 May 2008 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

The only reason I am giving this '80's hormone comedy romp a five is because it didn't take itself seriously, just aiming for an occasional laugh. I mean, how can you take a film with Eddie Deezen in it seriously? The film centers on a spineless wimp, played well by Peter Scolari, who is offered the job of managing a motel owned by Christopher Lee - who plays Scolari's prospective father-in-law. He and his girlfriend, Colleen Camp venture down to Florida to take charge of the place not knowing that Lee has set Scolari up for failure. He has already planned to torch the motel to collect insurance money while devising a cunning plan to make Scolari look the loser that he is so his daughter won't marry him. Laughs come occasionally but not nearly as often as the bare breasts shots. Comedies of the 80's had one thing going for them and that was the endless supply of nakedness.

VIOLENCE: $$ (This isn't an action film so you shouldn't go into it expecting to see any violence or bloodshed. However, the man who Christopher Lee hires to torch the motel has constant run-ins with fire and bombs).

NUDITY: $$$$$ (On parade here! Evil Toon's Monique Gabrielle sheds her clothes on several occasions as well as the other nameless actresses who play the bellhop-hookers. Believe when I type this, it is all gratuitous. There is a scene with a fused out Vietnam veteran -not played by Bruce Dern, surprise - who conducts a formation of nude women armed to the hilt with weapons. Colleen Camp manages to keep her clothes on so all of you folks who drooled over her in Clue - sorry, she teases us again here).

STORY: $$ (Nothing great. Colleen Camp seems to run the motel but makes Scolari feel like he is calling the shots. I wondered why she was with such a useless guy since she is the daughter of a well-to-do Christopher Lee. The pairing made little sense in this film. The main premise of the film is to see if Scolari can win over Lee before the motel is torched. Needless to say, the plot is threadbare but still moderately enjoyable).

ACTING: $$ (The acting here isn't that good. Deezen and Fran Drescher have their fan-bases but I don't see why anyone would want to watch them act. They can't help but be annoying. Scolari and Camp do alright with their roles but Christopher Lee is wasted. The story centers around Scolari and Camp and doesn't flesh out Dracula - or Mr. Lee. The two original bellhops offer a few laughs as the two guys try every maneuver in the book to score with the hooker-bellhops. However, as a whole, the acting was slightly below average for the genre).
