The flavour is all wrong!
6 May 2006 | by (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada) – See all my reviews

Perhaps I have a warped mind, but I usually enjoy films that show the film industry can laugh at itself. The best of the few films of this type which I have seen are parodies with sequences that include biting satire - for example "Mistress" and parts of "Starlet" - these are priceless. More commonly the humour is of the slapstick type and is much less satisfying. However even these often have a number of sequences which parody movies that have been complete disasters, so bad that they are very very funny. Watching can then also be quite amusing if one keeps a finger on the fast forward button to avoid getting bogged down. "All in Good Taste" is different; I cannot remember seeing any other such film that was as totally devoid of humour. Its story is about a promising new scriptwriter who is asked to rewrite his morally wholesome script so that it can be used for the production of a B movie nudie - which must of course be "all in good taste". It sounds a wonderful story-line for a featherweight but quite enjoyable comedy, and for two minutes after I started playing the tape I hoped that was what I would be watching. Rarely has disappointment been greater. It was pure, unadulterated and very corny farce with hardly any funny lines or situations, and was unfortunately also very sleazy. Who authorised wasting money on the production of such garbage I do not know - my advice is not to waste another cent by buying or renting this film; buy it on VHS only if you find it listed for less than the cost of a blank tape (not improbable!), but even then do not bother to watch it before you tape over it.
