Decent Sexploitation Rip
9 July 2018 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Group Marriage (1973)

** (out of 4)

Try to follow this. Chris (Aimee Eccles) and her boyfriend Sandor (Solomon Sturges) are fighting and she ends up in bed with Dennis (Jeff Pomerantz). This doesn't sit well with Sando so Dennis brings his ex (Victoria Vetri) into the mix and soon the four are living together. It doesn't stop here as the ex meets a lifeguard (Zack Taylor) who is brought in and finally a lawyer (Claudia Jennings) is brought in. By this time the media finds out and the six are front page news.

Yes, I'm pretty sure most people will know that this type of story was done in BOB, CAROL, TED AND ALICE and of course that film made a ton of money at the box office so naturally various smaller companies would try to get a piece of the pie by releasing rip-offs. GROUP MARRIAGE is pretty much a cheap version of that film without the talent, without as many laughs but it does offer up some decent sexploitation moments and of course the nudity.

The biggest problem with this movie is that it was clearly rushed as there's really not a decent screenplay at work here. We basically get a generic set-up that allows one person to keep entertaining the "marriage" and after a while it just gets to the point where there's no story as more and more sexual stuff starts to happen. None of the sex is overly graphic and it's kept to a comedic style but the nudity by the beautiful ladies is certainly a major plus (each appeared in Playboy).

I wouldn't say the performances were "good" by any stretch of the imagination but at the same time I think all six were good enough in their roles where none of them hurt the picture. The six work well together and I thought they at least kept you somewhat interesting in what was going on. As you'd expect from a 70's comedy, there are various stereotypes at play here, which are a product of their time and they're actually kind of funny.
