The debaucherous ruler of the mighty Roman Empire, Julius Caesar, entrusts his faithful general and his right hand, Marc Anthony, to lure the magnificent Queen of the Nile, the seductive Cleopatra, to Rome. However, rather than throwing the black beauty of Egypt into the clutches of the lecherous emperor, Marc decides to court Cleopatra himself, and taste the forbidden fruit. But the alluring Queen hasn't shown her cards yet. What's on her mind?Written by
Softt-core period piece that has the 'action' taking place during the days of the Roman Empire falls flat. Whereas "the Secret sex lives of romeo & Juliet" had it's quite attractive women to fall back on as well as a fews actually humorous jokes, this film has neither. The women are not that attractive (and the men are outright hideous). The movie is a deadly dull chore to watch even for a few minutes much less the whole thing. Any watcher of Something Weird's dvds can attest to the films they release are purely hit or miss. This one being an obvious all-around miss.
Something Weird DVD Extras: 2 short features (Cleopatra's milk bath, and Cleopatra's asp); gallery of Harry Novak art; and Trailers for "the Brazen women of Balzac", "A Clock Work Blue". "Fanny Hill", "the Nine Ages of Nakedness", "Roman Love Triangle", & "the Secret Sex lives of Romeo and Juliet" (The latter of which is also on this double feature DVD)
Eye Candy: all the women show skin, but most you don't want to see them naked
