Storyline

A classic, wild 70's R-rated sex comedy. Movie-nut hamburger waitress Alice Goodbody (Sharon Kelly - star of Supervixens) sleeps her way to Stardom via encounters with crew and cast of a rock-musical movie. It's a bumpy-road for Alice, however, because of a series of comic mishaps on the set. A ribald romp that Roger Corman called, "Hilarious! The funniest, truest take on Hollywood -- EVER!"

Not good, not terrible
3 June 2018 | by ofumalowSee all my reviews

In craftsmanship this is a cut above average for 70s softcore drive-in smut--it's technically competent, doesn't seem dirt cheap, and the performers seem like pros even if they're mostly one-note and hammy. But in tone it's very typical for the same, all on the level of your basic dirty joke. The entire "joke" here is that our wide-eyed buxom heroine blithely gets exploited for sexual favors on every step up the Hollywood ladder, which in fact she doesn't ascend at all. (There's also a slapstick running gag about why she doesn't succeed in becoming a starlet--every time she gets a scene in the movie she's been hired to, she magically attracts a falling setpiece or some other, increasingly disabling personal accident.)

When you see a movie from this period you pretty much expect that its take on the "Sexual Revolution" really isn't going to be any more enlightened than a bachelor's party at the Playboy Club. The humor level here isn't as bad as in such dirty-joke compilations as "If You Don't Stop It You'll Go Blind" that were also playing drive-ins at the time. But it's still pretty bad. All of Alice's "benefactors" are one-dimensional caricatures, probably the lamest being the one whose entire gimmick seems to be that he belches or farts (I wasn't sure which was intended) all the time.

The upside to this, apart from the film being clearly made by professionals (some amazingly amateurish stuff managed to get into drive-ins and grindhouses back then), is that Sharon Kelly gives a stubbornly good-natured performance in the title role. She's cute in a natural way (and I don't mean just the lack of silicone), as well as being as funny as the weak material allows. She makes Alice so innocently cheerful the sleaze factor is somewhat abated. The other major plus is that the movie which movie-mad waitress Alice gets to work on is a "Julius Ceasar" musical whose scenes are not staged with any parodic flair here--but the music, on the other hand, is a quite dead-on spoof of "Jesus Christ Superstar" and other entries in the then-hot "rock opera" category.

Those two things aside, this is a 70s drive-in sex comedy much like the more infamous "Chatterbox," albeit without the jaw-dropping bad taste concept which makes that movie a must-see even though it's not as much fun as you'd hope.
