It's not as Bad as many say, but its not that good either.
Once again, as I write this, I gotta tell ya, I saw this on the "Z" Channel
in Los Angeles in the early 80's. I had three emotions while seeing
this..one was, "This is messed up" then laughter, and one more was: "Pia
Zadora isn't THAT bad of an actress."
You see, it WAS the 80's. Pia had an on screen "something" that with the
right vehicle could have given her a decent film career. Leading Lady? No
way. The second or third important female role? You betcha. Such as "the
wicked sister" or "the backstabbing girl friend" roles, with the type of
stuff that was coming out then. She could have been a "cheap rent" Jane
Seymour type in films playing those rolls. But she got this one...and it
wasn't that great. The story was all over the place, the sexual tension was
laughable and...very confusing at times. This film is bad, but top 200 bad,
not top 50 bad.
The gosh-awful script didn't help ANYONE in this film. It was bad. There is
a bit of "camp" film quality running through this film at points, not enough
to make it a "good-camp" film to redeem it. A lot of misguided areas here, a
hodgepodge of a story and a lot of wasted talent.
Thank goodness for all involved, there was a paycheck waiting for them at

So bad it's great
Is this film ever going to get a DVD release? Even a cheap, quick
release? A film this bad deserves to see the light of day, so aspiring
film students can watch this and learn what not to do. Like, say, the
creepy "Oh, I'll wash my daughter's back while she's taking a bath"
scene. I haven't been able to find this movie at any used VHS store;
it's time to put this legendarily bad film to DVD. If for no other
reason then to see Welles in the sunset of his career and Ed McMahon
actually acting, instead of being Johnny's sidekick or giving people
massive checks for Publisher's Clearinghouse. And Pia Zadora, Thespian.
Come on Criterion Collection, your public duty to unearth this wretched
gem for a whole new generation to explore awaits you!.
