Not As Good as the Original But Decent
Debbie Does Dallas Part II (1981)
** 1/2 (out of 4)
Debbie (Bambi Woods) has decided to put her cheer-leading days behind her and after a rough exchange with a cop she finds herself at a bordello where she figures working won't kill her.
When DEBBIE DOES DALLAS was first released it turned into a massive success and it made an overnight star of Woods. The rest is pretty much an unwritten history as to what happen to Woods and why she came out of hiding to appear in this film is anyone's guess. There are a couple different documentaries out there about the making of this series and its star so it makes for some interesting viewing.
As far as this sequel goes, it's about as cheap and as stupid as you can get but there's one thing that makes it worth watching and that's Woods herself. Sure, her performance here is just as bad as in the original but sometimes looks can cover up things like, you know, bad acting. I personally found Woods to be extremely cute and I thought there's a certain naive quality that comes across from her performance not meeting certain standards.
Familiar faces like Robert Kerman, Jamie. St. John and Jeanne Silver are on hand but the entire film is pretty much leading up to Ron Jeremy making an appearance and getting it on with Debbie. The film's plot is downright stupid, the attempts at comedy are fails and there's no question that the film is somewhat poorly made but at the same time it delivers as a sex film.
