cheap and nasty
7 October 2003 | by (ny) – See all my reviews

Incredibly one-sided and biased, Rate It X is barely a documentary. The only point being made is that men are filthy perverts, intent on subjegating women and using them for their personal pleasure. The chosen subjects range from Ugly George, a Manhattan cable TV host who cajoles women into flashing their bodies on camera, to a preacher who would like to return Old Testament values to modern society. All are chosen for their various qualities of ignorance, arrogance, unattractiveness or just plain creepiness. The "erotic" baker is innocent of any crime against women, he merely makes bikini-torso cakes for male customers. Much is made of the fact that the cakes don't have heads. The revelation that men prefer a woman's breasts is less than shocking. A discussion among elderly VFW-types nearly makes a statement about middle-American values in regard to male-female roles, but the film-makers can't come up with anything more incisive to ask than "would you let your son play with dolls?" The advertising industry is put on trial for its use of attractive women in print ads, as if it was inherently evil to show women in their underwear in a women's underwear ad! An extremely narrow and unenlightened attempt to portray men as abusive brutes that fails miserably. Entertaining as an example of bad film-making.
