Trivia

The actual first nudie musical is considered to be the 1963 nudie-cutie Goldilocks and the Three Bares (1963). See more »

Goofs

When Miss Jones [The Young Ingenue] is singing the opening female solo (following her audition), it's obvious that her voice is dubbed, as the audio is a second out of sync with her vocals. And the higher notes are not matching her mouth or jaw movements. See more »

A certain type of masterpiece
25 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I have loved this movie since I saw it when it first came out. It certainly doesn't fit into anyone's definition of a "well-made film," but it has its own low-budget brilliance. A big part of what makes it work (aside from the hilarious songs) is the feeling of heart and, dare I say, innocence it has (it is called a "Nudie Musical" not a "Porno Musical" and for good reason). There are so many moments that still will send me rolling on the floor, doubled-over in laughter, marveling at the unique combination of dead-on satire and really really BAD humour. Favorite number: The Dancing Dildos (They aren't really dildos, they are vibrators. The fact that the makers don't seem to know the difference is part of the charm of the film). Favorite scene: The director's first meeting with the cast and crew, decked out like Erich von Stroheim. Favorite line: Diane Canova's immortal "Isss so beeeg! Isss yust so beeeg!"

If you have an open mind and enjoy bad or B type cinema, you will most likely love this film.
