Old fashioned risqué vaudeville act

4/10
Author: edinman from United States
13 July 2006

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The opening scene of this film involves a guy who wanders into a "talking building." He thinks he must be on Candid Camera because everybody knows buildings can't talk. Oh, but if those walls COULD talk, there might be plenty to say about this apartment building and its tenants.

That's pretty much the premise of "Up Yours!" and it's the role of beautiful Cindy Morgan to magically appear throughout the movie in the role of the talking building--to wax poetic about the going-ons inside.

Beyond that, there is really no cohesive plot, just a series of risqué "Laugh-In" style skits and double entendre one-liners involving the everyday lives of the apartment dwellers.

To give you an idea of the kind of humor tossed about, here's an example from one of the skits: Husband is so fed up that his wife won't go grocery shopping he starts to eat dog food. Before long he starts to like dog food so much he won't eat anything else. Delivery boy starts bringing more and more dog food until one day the wife tells him to stop.

"But why?" asks confused delivery boy. "This is the best dog food we have," boy insists.

"I'm sorry but my husband has passed away," wife sobs.

"Well, I hate to say this but I warned you dog food wasn't good for his stomach," delivery boy responds.

"Oh, it's not that," wife replies. "Last night while licking his balls he fell off the couch and broke his neck." Yuck-yuck. Har-har.

Rest assured there is also at least a little nudity thrown about here and there (although Cindy Morgan--by far the most attractive member of the cast--does not appear nude).

Most people would undoubtedly rate this film as a real stinker, which probably explains why it is so obscure. Still, if you have any affection for old-time risqué vaudeville style entertainment, you might find something to amuse yourself with here. A few of the skits actually made me smile so I'll be generous and rate it a 4 out of 10.

If not terribly successful, I'll at least chalk it up as a weirdly bizarre low-budget independent effort unlike any other movie I've ever seen.

The Greatest Movie I Never Saw

10/10
Author: tv_paul from In the Mythical Land of Jersy of the New

This is a must see, because I don't think anyones ever glazed their eyes on the masterpiece of movie making. Any movie starring the George " Buck" Flowers, yes the Buckster in all his glory. Who could forget his outstanding performance in Back to the Future and Back to the Future Part II as the Bum.Or the stylish performance in They Live as The Drifter or in Night Stalker as Tramp. The way he used subtle nuance to go from Drunk in Escape from N.Y. to Wino in Dead Men Don't Die...truly impressive. And perhaps his crowning glory in Munchies as the unforgettable, but mostly forgotten and hardly ever remember or brought up in any conversation by anyone living or dead, the character simply known as Ragpicker. This alone makes Up Yours truly a gem of a motion picture.
