Great Bouncing Bosoms!
14 July 2000 | by TomlonsoSee all my reviews

Mix old-time Burlesque, "jiggle" TV and the basic plot of "Animal House", and you've pretty much summed up this example of "B" movies at the time Reagan became President. Of all the "Animal House" imitators, "H.O.T.S." is probably the best. Don't watch it for great acting, writing or directing, but don't expect to spend a lot of time with your finger on the "Fast Forward" button either. If all you've seen is the USA edit, you've missed what is the essence of the film - beautiful topless women. It's not so much sexploitation as it is an update of the kind of show Grandpa saw in the big city when Grandma wasn't along. Not only the light, breezy attitude toward nudity, but the jokes, the pies, the seltzer, the animal acts - even two baggy-pants comics.
