Among the finalists for "Centerfold Of The Year" are Angel and her spiteful rival Betty. However, no one is aware of Angel's involvement in a secret medical beauty enhancement program headed by Dr. Lindstrom. Desperate to win, Angel overdoses on Lindstrom's formula, with disastrous results. Soon she has grown to monstrous but shapely proportions, causing all sorts of complications, the most dangerous being Betty's jealousy of Angel's new-found attention. Betty discovers Angel's secret and takes the formula herself, causing her to grow into an equally gorgeous giant. As the girls battle it out on Hollywood Blvd., Dr. Lindstrom races to find an antidote. Written by

Roger Corman produced, Fred Olen Ray directed, and it stars a trio of centerfolds. One look at the cover and you should know what you're in for. Its stupid, silly, hokey, sexy, and a pretty fun time for fans of late vintage, middlebrow T&A farce. The girls are hot, (two of them immaculate), frequently topless, and the whole affair is very straightforward, Joe Bob Briggs-style, drive-in camp. There is a bit of the forced campy acting that I don't like, but the majority of the time, the cast are taking their roles seriously, (to the best of their abilities, anyway), which adds a level of charm that is often lacking in these kind of movies. The effects are silly, but decent enough to escape unintentional laughability. I wouldn't go so far as calling this movie a gem, but it is above-average for its genre, as far as overall watchability goes. If you used to enjoy "Joe Bob's Drive-in Theater," this movie is a decent throwback. The whole premise is actually strangely hot, don't you think? I mean, she's a whole lot of centerfold up there! 2.5 stars.
