Just when you thought it was safe to go back and hire a video
28 February 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I remember hiring this when I was 18. I remember a lone penis, washing up on shore. I also remember turning off when I got to the puppets. Is this for real? You can't be serious?. To me, this was an amateurish display of film making, with not so famous porn stars, where the real ones probably turned their back on this one. We have a killer mermaid out there with a big set of choppers, out to catch any unfortunate soul of the male species, naked, but first putting through ultimate ecstasy, before robbing them of their johnson. Gums is like a film where four parts were jammed together, devoid of sense. From what I saw, it was none erotic, yet different. May'be their was potential, but I didn't really see any future in proceeding to view this sex farce, with actor's names, I can't believe, in a film with a colorful and catchy title. I do recall the opening theme though. I would actually give it another view, if I could track the movie down, but with attaining the real video cover movie, would be miniscule. The trailer with David Argue scuba'd up, talking through a snorkel, with bubble sound effects in the background, you might say doesn't any promotional insight into the decrepit movie either.

1.5/10
