Mcbride's early starting flick is okay (not bad)
18 February 2013 | by PeterMitchell-506-564364See all my reviews

I can't believe this was made by the guy who did the Breathless remake and The Big Easy. This seventies American Grattifi film is something of a wonder. It's of better quality than you think. When I first saw it, I just remembered it as being a sleazy 80's 4/10 movie, then it took a couple of viewings to realize it was more. The first view, I don't think I ever got to the end. Our protagonist, Archie, has got it HARD. He's undersexed, his friends go out with better looking girls, where Archie has to make do with 6/10 sorts. His Sister is hot and horny, which of course aggravates him, almost to the point of exploding, though this isn't the only time of the movie wee feel this. He likes to perv on her too. Archie is having to wait, to go all the way with his girl. At one point he ends up on a porn film where he's on top of a young hottie, where for Archie, they may'be some light at the end of the tunnel, yet. So we don't have a badly made film, that's inspirational. You could re title this film as "The Young And Sexually Frustrated".
