Kiss Me Quick! (1964)
User ReviewsReview this title
The DR. STRANGELOVE references may be few, but its just enough to make the film watchable. Fans of nudie-cutie films of the sixties should hang their heads in shame if they haven't seen it, while church going suburbanites should pray they never hear of it!
Interesting fact: The film's director of photography, Laslo Kovacs, would go on to shoot CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, GHOSTBUSTERS, and EASY RIDER!
KISS ME QUICK! is a girrating fun time, with plenty of girls-a-poppin!
This film was made during the ear of monster popularity. The Addams Family and the Munsters were big hits on television, so of course we get monsters as the male characters in the film. Short on plot, this film is basically wall-to-wall women dancing without wearing too many clothes. But more importantly, it wasn't intended to be anything more than that; its reach did not exceed its grasp.
The final scene, with the woman coming down a conveyor belt and having labels slapped on them was a stroke of pure artistic genius.
While this has absolutely nothing to do with Stanley Kubrick's brilliant film DR. STRANGELOVE (it only borrows the name so that it can be spoofed), this is still a fun film to watch.
The woman are all uniformly very good looking and attractive, probably many of whom were top men's magazine models about the time this movie was made. The men, most of whom were under mountains of makeup (which was probably just as well) played their parts as campy as they could.
The story and plot of this film is creaky because already the basic idea had become a cliché because of countless science fiction films of the 50s and the 60's.
The movie is about an alien who goes over to see the lecherous Mr. Breedlove and his cave of monsters in order to buy women for his planet for reproduction purposes. The film is just an excuse to watch fully dressed women take it all off. It's like being at a burlesque house of the era when the women were fully dressed instead of going on stage in lingerie or bikinis. While we watch them disrobe, Sterilox and Mr. Breedlove deliver some hilariously bad dialogue as they watch them from a portal.
Yes, the film is extremely cheap looking and probably cost very little to make but it probably made a huge profit. Also, the film has a little sensuality in it as by 1964 they were getting a little more daring and were not just offering up nudity without any spice like they did earlier in the decade.
It is definitely worth checking out if you want to see the evolution of the adult film. It is on DVD but is also aired on Drive-In Classics in Canada.
I liked it mainly because of the young, naked women, all of whom are grandmothers by now!

It turns out that aliens have no females so they send a male alien named Sterilox to Earth so that with the help of Dr. Breedlove he can find woman to knock up. This sexploitation film is a minor take off on Kubrick's Dr. strangelove but have no fear because the Kubrick movie isn't going to lose any viewers to this thing. I've seen quite a few of these sexploitation flicks and this here is one of the better ones but that doesn't mean it's a good movie. What this film does offer unlike others is that the director has a lot of energy in the film with the camera constantly moving and various other things coming in and out of the story. You've got a lot of naked women but a mummy, Frankenstein's monster and even Dracula show up for some silly stuff.
The alien is a Stan Laurel impersonator.
The girls look great and the movie was filmed in color (not so common for a low budget 60s nudie cutie).
Need I say more? Clearly they tried to make a sexy comedy without spending much money. They succeeded superbly! I loved this movie one of my favorites from SWV.
Give it a try.
Pervs like me will love it.
