My publisher says my book will be on the best-seller list forever; of course, he also says that he can levitate if he focuses really hard...
This is the only one in the series I've seen. Maybe I'd like it if that wasn't so. I researched the woman and the book briefly before putting this on; it's considered to be an important part of why sex became a less strained subject(although we appear to be moving backwards on that now, as more people are focusing on their careers than their love-lives), and I can certainly appreciate that. But this is 81 minutes of crap. It has nothing to say(other than perhaps "Hollywood is sleazy", however, even in 1980, that was old news, downright ancient), it has no purpose, and other than camp, it has nothing to offer the viewer. Well, T&A, obviously, though hardly any of it is erotic or attractive(it seems to be played for laughs, instead). This is about making a film out of the novel... you know, what the first of these movies were. That right there is way too complex and meta for this. I'm not saying something like this can't be smart, no, I'm pointing out that it insists that it can't be. Other than one, *maybe* two lines in this whole thing, the dialog is embarrassing and awful. Too little in this is rational; why would the producer think a picture claiming that the Church is responsible for her prostitution would do well, wouldn't they barely be able to release it? Did these three earn a lot? I hear that this is the best, the one that is put together with most skill, and that is just depressing. The acting is terrible and flat(I guess Batman *wasn't* gay... huh). Every joke and gag is powerfully unfunny, and this literally uses the freakin' "waaah-waaah"-trumpet, yeugh. This uses exaggerated cartoon sound effects. No, I've seen worse, I've hated flicks to a greater extent than this, but that's like saying that there are worse, smellier garbage dumps out there. There is some nudity and getting' it on in this. Only about half of it is hot. I recommend this to... I don't know, fans of the first two, and of exploitation cinema. 1/10
