I can only imagine how bad the other early Troma movies must be
5 January 2019 | by jadavixSee all my reviews

"Squeeze Play" is a tedious, unfunny collection of throwaway scenes that seem almost unrelated to each other. It manages not one single character that stands out from an extra or a plank of wood, and no real narrative. It has an odd feminist focus, what with scenes of sexual harassment, and women getting revenge on their bullies. However, it of course features quite a bit of nudity, and culminates in a softball match between men and women, in which the women's side is called "the beaverettes", and gets the edge on their opponents by dressing in revealing attire, thus distracting them.

It also features godawful narration which adds nothing to our understanding of the movie's negligible story. The affected voice the narrator uses was irritating at first, and when he gets verbal diarrhoea toward the end of the film, I felt like the sound of his voice was giving me a migraine, it was so irritating.

Despite its undeniable badness, "Squeeze Play" is apparently Troma Studios' first success. My curiosity about any of the movies they made before this one, apparently not equal to them in terms of success, ends here.
