The Girls in Thong (Franco)
27 March 2010 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Las chicas del tanga (1987)

** (out of 4)

The title of this translates to THE GIRLS IN THONG but unfortunately the lack of English subtitles is going to be a real deal breaker on this one. The film appears to be a comedy for the most part as we get countless men trying to impress various women. Most of the time we get the guys chasing the woman around and making a fool of themselves. At other times we have them playing with each other, fighting or various other things. I wish this release had English subtitles because 99% of the movie was dialogue and it's was impossible to follow everything that was going on with each relationship in the film. Most of these Franco films are easy to view without the subs but that's not the case here, so those, like myself, who track down these movies, this one here comes with a warning. I'd be shocked if any American company released this one because it's for Franco fans only. There's actually very little nudity on display here and the sex scenes never even reach a softcore level. It appears that the entire cast is having a good time and I must admit that the movie kept me interested even when I was completely lost. The film moved at a nice pace and it appeared everything was paying off quite well. The cast includes Lina Romay in a small role, Flavia Hervas, Antonio Mayans, Jose Llamas, Evan Leon and Analia Ivars. The cinematography was better than your typical 80s Franco flick and the music score wasn't too bad either. This one here is really hard to judge because of how much dialogue there was. The final third of the picture pretty much takes place on the beach where various women are discussing things and showing off their bodies, which I'm guessing is where the title comes from. Quite often I find myself watching a Franco film once and then moving on to the next one but this one here did interest me enough to where I'd get in line for a second viewing if anyone ever releases this with an English subtitle track.
