You Ain't Gonna Get That Bonus This Way, Boy!
12 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I selected this film out of a Drive-In Classics set, I was expecting a typical "don't hitchhike" exploitation / horror movie. What I actually got was something far more bizarre and interesting. Long story made short, two girls hitch a ride on a mobile home and end up stuck in the Everglades. Lots of sexual hijinks ensue.

What separates this film from any number of exploitation movies are the bizarre visions experienced by one mentally disturbed character. Although they border on the nonsensical, these sequences show a level of creativity not usually associated with this genre. Furthermore, whether by careful restoration, good quality film stock, or sheer luck, the film looks far better than many mainstream films from the 70s now on DVD.

That said, this film is not the work of art some fans make it out to be. The dialogue is often laughable, particularly in the case of the exasperated boss of the mobile home driver. Furthermore, the "Everglades" looks like it is actually an amusement park's safari ride- highly manicured and obviously not really wild. The sex scenes are basically soft core, and go on for so long that they become boring.

Overall, I cannot recommend this movie, but at the same time, it is just weird enough to be worth a rental.
