Very clumsily made gangster porn by Big Joe
7 April 2015 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

The sex scenes are stimulating, and that's all that recommends the desultory SOME LIKE IT HARD, assembly line porn from the California phase of Joe D'Amato's XXX career.

In my memory I had thought of this one as his answer film to Billy Wilder's SOME LIKE IT HOT due to the title but I was wrong. That spoof was directed by Joe's much better colleague Luca Damiano under the title MARYLIN. The D'Amato film in question is nearly plot less and also suffers from casting mainly no-name and lookalike femmes.

Steven St. Croix and Tony Montana are dressed up as gangsters and have the swagger but not much happens and the gun battles are so cheap Joe doesn't even bother to add SPFX like barrel flashes, giving the whole studio-set farrago the feel of a home movie effort.

Normally effective Nick East is terrible here, speaking with a whiny voice and wearing a pony tail which destroys any '20s credibility. The nominal hero is played by Gerry Pike using his British accent, and he is ludicrously named Lt. Elliot Ness, but without his untouchables. It would have been more interesting to set the junker in India and have real untouchables.

Femme lead of Lizzy is played by Selena, which confused me no end as I was waiting for the lovely D'Amato regular Selen to show up. I forgot that Joe wore two hats, using American casts (here) or European casts when back on the continent.

With cheap sets, no action or exterior set-ups to speak of, and uninteresting plot developments this is as close to just watching odd mis-matched reels of footage as I want to get.
