Captures 70's/80's B Movies Perfectly - Better Love That to Watch

If you love 70's / 80's B movies - oh this film is just perfect. If you remember that -sploitation (fill in the class, black, asian, women, etc.) era and cringe, just move on, don't watch this film. If you hate Ron Jeremy and seeing the edge of an adult film set compelete with full frontal male and female nudity, look the other way.

This is a paradoy of those B movies. They got the clothing, the lighting, the hair, the bad acting, the cars, the decor (the way walls were painted, furniture, et al), the film stock, the audio, the titles, and the editing absolutely 100% perfect spot on.

This is a cast of thousands, almost all B actors with long resumes in television or supporting actors in other films. James Franco shows up, probably the biggest name actor.

This got four stars simply because it's such a perfectly done throw back to an era of film making. It's short hour and 24 minutes to the point. There's some good laughs here and there. It feels a bit like a documentary, but is definately not real.

This film is R rated and then some. There's a lot of foul language. There is full male and female frontal nudity for exactly the reason a film might get and NC-17 rating. There's a small amount of violence, mostly in recreations of old television programs. Definately not a film for anyone younger than this rating.

The DVD is blissfully devoid of any special features.
