Mix together the sugar of '70s style erotica with the ginger of nonsensical comedy, cover it in a rich coating of 3-D, and you get a movie confection that, like all sweets, can't possibly be good for you, but is too delicious to resist. Iconic performers Bill Margold, Tyler Reynolds and Con Covert stir up all manner of naughty behavior, with a sprinkle of John Holmes, in this story of a candy factory that avoids a hostile takeover through a revolutionary new lollipop. Through the miracle of 3-D, you'll be close enough to taste the action. The Pasadena Courier says "3-D is what makes the film a riot. One can't help but crack-up at the various body parts that appear to be jiggling, bouncing, dangling and squirting right off the screen." 3-D glasses provided.

Even for a porno this is just terrible!
27 April 2007 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

This was released as a midnight movie only in a mainstream theatre here in MA back in the 1990s. It was unrated but no one under 17 was admitted (meaning it was X rated). Loving 3-D effects (and being old enough to get in) I decided to take a chance and see it. Bad mistake!

For starters despite the X rating the hardcore sex was (obviously) cut down to nothing. It wasn't any more explicit than an R rated film! The plot didn't make a bit of sense (something about people sucking on lollipops), the color was VERY faded and, to be nice, the 3-D effects were abysmal. The cast was attractive enough but after a half hour of badly edited sex, terrible 3-D and no plot whatsoever I had a headache and had just had it. I walked out--and I wasn't alone. About 3 other guys left the same time I did and we kept talking about how terrible the film was. We ended up sneaking into the "Rocky Horror Picture Show":) Boring, pointless with bad 3-D and faded color. Also what was the POINT of showing an X rated film with all the sex scenes cut out??? You can skip this one.
