Storyline

When medical researcher Dr. Fez discovers a device that stimulates and controls sexual behavior in laboratory mice, he knows he's on to something that could change the world. Or at least improve his own sex life. But first, he must put his invention to the ultimate test... on living breathing, 100% luscious women! It's a rollicking romp of wild abandon with some of the world's most beautiful women. Why dream, when you can be turned on? Written by Concorde - New Horizons (with permission).

Minor spoilers ahead.

Okay - the basic plot and most of the characters seem like they're from a bad comic strip - but they are based upon a strip by Italy's Milo Manara, who specializes in erotica, not plot or characterization.

The story: Dr. Fez, defrocked because of an incident with a student while he was researching at a university, now works for Mr. Christiani

  • the most evil and corrupt man in New Orleans. Bribed into taking the


fall for a "job" that's never described, he plots revenge when he hears of research that enhances sexual excitement in lab rats. Constructing a projector, he changes sexual response for several people, working up to his bosses wife - with largely pointless but fun results.

The problems: The flaws in the story (the black box seems to work by radiating a signal, but only works on the women he wants it to work on
  • not the women standing next to them) are broad and obvious, the


characters are more cardboard cutouts than usual, and there's a lot of weird stuff (the one-eyed detective with an attack dog - a black lab named 'Bazooka') tossed in to keep you from figuring out what's going on. The cars with the steering wheels on the wrong side, the non-USA license plates, the choice of a black lab as a killer attack dog, etc. will keep you from suspending disbelief - unless you really are ready to hang it by the neck until it's dead.

The pluses: Well, in the version I saw (_The Turn-on_, claiming to be from 1989 and unrated), there are plenty of good-looking women to fall prey to the doctor's black box, and nobody seems shy about full frontal nudity. The plot is tolerable, and the humor exists - it's not laugh out loud material, but it is amusing.

For a tawdry, "let's make up a plot as an excuse to ask the actresses to disrobe on camera" drama, it's fairly good. As I haven't read the comics it's based on, it may well be true to the source - I dunno. I've seen far worse plots, with worse camera-work, gain audiences.

This will be one of those "guilty pleasures" you'll share with your buddies, but never let your wife catch you watching. All in all, worth the rental.
