A pretty goofy 70's porn flick riot
5 January 2008 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Legendary 70's porn stud Harry Reems of "Deep Throat" and "The Devil In Miss Jones" fame portrays Roger, a meek, lonely, dorky guy who works as a dog walker for rich, horny Ms. Mammal (hysterically overplayed by 70's hardcore character actress Mary Stuart). While gawking and making faces at the gorilla cage in a nearby zoo, Roger fantasizes about having sex with Ms. Mammal while wearing a shoddy ape costume (said suit is pretty tacky, with rubber gloves for hands and Harry's naked feet completely uncovered). You see, Roger secretly wants "to be a gorilla"! Roger's sexually sicko dreams come true when he befriends the adorable Ellen (the luscious Bree Anthony), a lovely lass who's also turned on by gorillas. If the story fails to make you burst out laughing, then several of this film's gloriously ludicrous production touches might very well cause you to crack up instead. For starters, there's the neatly varied array of carnal activity which includes fellatio, lesbianism, cunnilingus, and an especially lively partner swapping climactic foursome. Moreover, the gals holler such inane exclamations as "Oh, you big gorilla!" and "You're such an animal" while doing just what you think with Roger. Plus Roger makes these funny "ooh, ooh, ooh!" monkey noises as he gets it on with the ladies. Best of all, the movie makes splendidly schlocky use of fuzztone guitar-burning rock music: Besides the insanely groovy theme song "Everyone Wants to Be King Kong," we also got choice crappy covers of "Ape Man" by the Kinks, "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin, and a truly wretched instrumental mangling of "Come Together" by the Beatles (!). Director David Sears depicts all the libidinous goings-on in that highly graphic and clinical intense gynecological style which makes 70's porn so uniquely raw and alluring, thus ensuring that this blithely dippy hardcore romp is a real hoot from start to finish.
