Nasty Nurses? Not really. The nurses are nice enough. Nasty Movie would be a more fitting title. Producer/director Paul G. Vatelli has taken a very capable and sensuous cast and given them a script that no nurse could salvage from the critical list.
Nasty Nurses takes place in a hospital where the nurses do their best work out of uniform and the doctors do their operating everywhere but in the operating room. Unfortunately, the film is merely five redundant, lackluster se scenes, loosely stitched together by one of the oldest plots of the cinema: male star forced to decide between two women.
In Nasty Nurses, Dr. Matthews, portrayed by Herschel Savage, must choose between nurse Simpson (Janey Robbins), and his wife, played by the abundant Kay Parker.
In the opening sex scene, Robbins and Savage give a strong performance but are grossly overdirected. The scene lacks spontaneity as Dr. Matthews leaves none of the Nurse Simpson’s anatomy unexamined. But he does so in a methodical top to bottom fashion that seemed to satisfy the director’s checklist, but not the viewers.’
The other four sex scenes are unimaginative copies of the first, with only one warranting special mention. John Holmes plays a proctologist with a more than professional interest in “the back door.” He has a reputation in the hospital off using his gargantuan flesh proctoscope to check out the new candy stripers. In Nasty Nurses, he is provided with one that is quite young, very appealing and capable taking it all, no small feat considering the equipment Holmes is packing. This scene will leave anal sex aficionados howling for more and reaching for the rewind button.
In all of the sex scenes, the actors seem overly concerned with providing the camera with good angles. This makes for superb documentation of uninspired acts. Vatelli should have been more concerned with creating scenes worth filming and letting the actors perform more naturally.
Perhaps the gravest sin this movie commits is an obvious bait and switch. While Kay Parker and John Holmes are listed as the stars of Nasty Nurses, they only appear in one sex scene each (not together) lasting several minutes. This is something that sophisticated adult viewers should not tolerate when paying good money for video tapes.
This film cannot be highly recommended. But for those who fantasize about the ladies in white, this may be what the doctor ordered. The nurses look good in white and even better out of it. It’s a shame that Nasty Nurses didn’t provide more erotic moments.
