No movie ever like it. Story is unique and idea hysterical., 8 July 2001

I saw this movie on the big screen when I was a teenager. It was a time when you couldn’t go to XXX rated movies… This is not that kind of movie.

The idea is so original, never been done before or since… a woman has a vagina that talks and sings (makes you think of a combination of Joan Rivers and Don Rickles). Because of it’s caustic and degrading humor the poor girl can’t maintain a decent relationship with any man. When she goes to a Doctor to see if something can be done to shut it up, he decides this is a dream come true and should take it on the road. He becomes her manager. Unfortunately the vagina gets more attention than the girl it’s attached to. I’ll leave the ending for you to see, all I’ll say is that it’s a happy one.

Regarding the quality of the film, yes it is a stinker. But when you take such a unique story and stick in a few decent jokes (no worse than Arnolds’), some small cameo appearences and a lot less sex than you’ll see in today’s movies.) I think that what came out was a hysterical, never to forget, sexual comedy worth taking out a bottle of champagne or a jug of cheap wine and playing when you and yours decide you want a good laugh before going to bed. Just sit back and relax and have a good laugh. Believe me, it could do wonders to add a little extra into a relationship. And then when I think of when Madeline Kahn sings “Sweet Mystery of Life” in “Young Frankenstein”, I thought I would lose my lunch I laughed so hard. Give the movie the chance… I guarantee that you have paid much more for lots of movie to see worse.

The greatest talking vagina movie ever made!, 26 December 2000

Compared to the lunkheaded, overly graphic sex comedies of today, this film comes off actually as innocent, sexy fun. 70’s starlet Candace Rialson is gorgeous (and often naked) and really makes this goofy premise believable. Too bad she left acting after the 70’s. For all the goofy sexual situations, including one where Rialson makes love to a guy in a suit of armor, this is nicely paced and has some genuine laughs. Throw in disco dancing, musical numbers and guest appearances by old school crazies Rip Taylor and Professor Irwin Corey and you have a movie that deserves a better reputation than a “World’s Worst Film”.
