No plot, just lots of nudity
16 May 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

A would-be look at the history of prostitution from sexploitation producer Stanley Long, ON THE GAME packs more female nudity into its running time than many an erotic film or sex comedy. It's basically a series of vignettes, arranged in a basic chronological order, that humorously explore prostitution in various settings and eras.

The narrative is supplied by Charles Gray (possibly warming up for THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW) and begins with an outrageous spoof of the ape-man scene in Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. From then on in, we see the female form in various states of undress throughout the ages. There's spanking, dancing, and lots and lots of simulated sex.

Some of the sex scenes are quite explicit and near the knuckle for the time, with fondling and the like, while other sequences are more like you'd expect to see in a CARRY ON movie from the era. Carmen Silvera ('ALLO 'ALLO) has a minor role although thankfully not as one of the nude starlets. And it's fair to say that the guys barely get a look in here - this is a celebration of the female form in its unclothed state, and if the calibre of the acting is inadequate, then at least the actresses are attractive.
