Yuck

This was a porno gone drastically wrong. Tacky music a bad plot and some nudity. (not that I mind) the music remind me of bump and grind on old 70's porn and the plot simple wasn't there. Badly acted by nearly everyone in it. It seemed they were just champing at the bit to get the paycheck. The only good part was played by Cameron Mitchell who proved he could act no matter how bad the script. The part of Sabrina could have been good but was too short to be enjoyable and too tritely played as if the actress was aware her screen time was minimal so bad was good and the heck with the rest.

It's not a huge surprise to know that Fred Williamson is in this years latest bit of camp Starsky and Hutch.
