Don't the "creative" people in videoland have ANY fresh ideas floating in their minds? I mean c'mon, Inspector Cliteau? Funny name, yes, but a whole feature build around Herschel Savage wearing a phony mustache?
Therein lies the problem. In Hollywood, such movies are called "high-concept;" films like Clue and Santa Claus are movies with build-in audiences where the title comes first with the script as an afterthought. The Pink Panties should be labeled "low-concept," with the title coming first, and all the sex added in after the producer signs a few actors. Most of the time, high and low concept results in nothing but below average tapes which is basically what Panties is.
Savage shamelessly mugs and uses the worst European accent since who-knows-when. The sex is the same old thing, with the same positions. I want something fresh, something I have not seen before. On the box for this feature there is the following blurb; "Does justice prevail or does Cliteau fail? Amidst all the hilarity and lust even you won't care!"
They are right; I don't care. But it is hard to care when a feature is rather dull, especially when coming from an original director who has delivered quality "high-concept" video in the past.
