A Clockwork Blue (1972)

BOMB (out of 4)

Awful sexploitation picture has a black man and a Jewish man going to Heaven at the same time. Both are granted wishes so the black man takes a million dollars while the Jewish man takes a watch, which ends up having special powers and can take him back in time. While the Jewish man is on a historical journey playing various figures (George Washington, King Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette), the black man watches from his watermelon television. A CLOCKWORK BLUE was released as a part of a double bill with director Eric Jeffrey Haims others film THE JEKYLL & HYDE PORTFOLIO. If you that thought film was bad then you might as well skip this one because it's downright awful from the opening scene to the last. I will say that the director did a good job with the colors used in the film but this here isn't nearly enough to keep this comedy watchable. The jokes are without question some of the worst that you're ever going to hear and it's just amazing that anyone thought they'd be funny. To say they are beyond lame would be an insult to the word lame. Even worse is that for a sexploitation picture there's really not as much nudity or sex. While watching the picture I really couldn't help but wonder what the director was trying to do with this thing but the comedy and nudity both failed. Sexploitation fans will enjoy getting a brief look at Rene Bond but she can't even save this thing. The film is available in both a soft and hard version. I watched the soft but after viewing it I have zero interest in the other.
