Sometimes Fun, Most times dumb B-Movie.

Hot Under the Collar is your classic b-movie. It has some fun parts, lot of dumb characters & very cheesy acting by most involved. One exception would by Melinda Clarke who stands out as the only actor here who just doesn't fit in, in that she is too good to be stuck in such a dumb movie. She plays a girl who, through hypnosis, leaves her boyfriend and joins a convent and becomes a nun-in-training. Her boyfriend, Jerry Kaminski (played by Richard Gabai), decides to get her out of there and, with the help of his friends, disguise themselves as priests and nuns, somehow fooling the actual nuns, to get in and break her hypnosis. That plot in and of itself is kinda stupid, but has it's fun parts. The sub-plot involving a nerdy guy who works in the convent to avoid a bunch of very inept crooks whom he stole diamonds from is just really really stupid. The crooks send in the head crook's mistress to locate/steal back the diamonds from the nerdy guy before the crooks themselves come to the convent when the plan doesn't go off as expected. Then the 2 stories intermix, which, of course, isn't a good thing, except for one particularly funny scene where Kaminski bumps into a Jackie Chan-wannabe which leads to a brief fight scene before they both realize that the Chan-wannabe is in the wrong movie (they compare scripts). Overall, I would only give this movie 5/10 stars and only recommend it to fans of Melinda Clarke, as she is the only good actor in this movie, or to those who just really love dumb b-movies.
