55 mins is way too long. Plus, "known" lesbian??
28 July 2008 | by huh_oh_i_cSee all my reviews

This is a kind of spoof of Reefer Madness. I hope they got govt funding for this, that would have been a great joke. This is on the surface a movie warning you against the dangers of doing drugs. There are two things which belie that. One, there's an awful lot of nudity in it, like half the screen time. Two, supposedly Alice does the voice over but at the end she's shown to have lost her mind because of drug use, so how can she do the voice-over.

The other problem is the lead. While Alice might've been a beauty from afar, she's far from beautiful. She's chubby, very much so, even by the standards of 1968, since the other girls are at least NOT chubby. Fair's fair, the men are also chubby, and rather unappealing too.

Plus, these women look way too old. The lesbian partner of Frida looks not a day under 38, and the other 'school' girls all look 25.

I bet in 1968, this could have been arousing, but now? Not so much.

And I take offense to the phrase "a known lesbian". As if being a lesbian is a crime! 40 years ago, you say? We don't do that anymore, you say? What do you think about:

  • "in a COMMITTED gay relationship" and


  • "openly homosexual" and


  • "gay LIFESTYLE" ???
