Seduction of Misty Mundae, The

"Sometimes women have sexual urges..."
2 stars

In the interest of full disclosure, at the time of this review I'm a single guy with a subscription to Cinemax, so I'm familiar with the lowlowlow budget sexploitation films that usually run late at night on said channel. And I'm somewhat familiar with the work of star Misty Mundae. She's mostly been featured in the erotic spoofs that have been churned out in the early part of the decade - Playmate Of The Apes, Lord Of The G-Strings, Spiderbabe - cheesy sex comedies (and generally bad movies) all. The Seduction Of Misty Mundae seems to be a bit of a departure for both the star and the studio (Seduction Cinema) in that it's a little more straightforward in its softcore: more dramatic and sorta erotic, and less jokey, but still...well...bad.

Mundae plays Misty (duh), a teenager who goes to live with her Aunt Inga (Julian Wells) while her mom recovers from some sort of illness. Misty's a virgin, and this is the story of her journey of sexual discovery. It's pretty much the same role Mundae's played in just about every previous outing: virginial schoolgirl Lolita-type who blossoms into a sexual being. She looks young (though in reality she's closing in on 26) and is all natural - no plastic, no piercings, no visible ink - so that's the appeal for her audience. Anyway. Plot. Late nights lead to Misty overhearing Aunt Inga's moaning in the next room all the time - touching yourself does that for women in these types of flicks - so of course Misty gets horny, and decides wants to have sex. The boy next door (Mario Duchi) takes Misty's virginity, and she decides she'd also like to experience a woman's touch...which ultimately turns out to be Inga's.


Well, no. The obvious plot twist (and I'm gonna go ahead and spoil it, because it's not as if you're gonna watch The Seduction Of Misty Mundae for its riveting storyline) is that Inga isn't actually Misty's biological aunt, but that she and Misty's mother were close. Very close. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. So by the time we get to the film's climax (uhh...) all is right with the world and we're left with a younger woman/slightly older woman pairing, minus all those messy incest overtones.

Make no mistake. This is not a good movie by any stretch of the imagination. But it's also aimed squarely at a certain kind of audience who will no doubt dig it. You know who you are. You won't notice that the movie features characters leaving the front door to Inga's house open every single time. You won't notice that the film features a window shopping musical montage...followed by a trying on new clothes musical montage! Followed minutes later by the getting ready for the big date musical montage! I shit you not! It's like Chris Columbus decided to direct a softcore porn! You won't notice that said montage clothes look like they were all purchased at T.J. Maxx. On clearance. You won't notice that Misty's such an innocent that she rides her antique bike in a single half circle in her aunt's driveway for fun. No, the audience for this movie will be all about the poorly shot fake sex.

In addition to Misty seeing Inga going to town on herself (nothing graphic, mind you, this is softcore, after all, so you won't see women spread so far that you can see their kidneys), there's some simulated oral, and three lesbian setpieces, all featuring the requisite amount of hair tossing and tongue touching that seems less erotic and more along the lines of "Jeez, that couldn't look any less convincing," one of which ultimately leads to the film's lone hetero pairing (Misty and boy next door). Only the Misty/Billy pairing and the final scene with Misty and Inga generate any kind of heat, and the former gets its fire entirely due to Mundae's expressions, since when Billy goes down he DOESN'T MOVE AT ALL, all while she's writhing endlessly. Dude, it's called acting; try it sometime. Misty does give a nice "o," however. As for the Misty/Inga finale, it's not bad as softcore lesbian pairings go.

As for acting...oh, who am I kidding? Nobody watches these kinds of flicks for the acting. Misty's naïveté plays fine, however, and since the film revolves around her, that's good enough, I guess. Wells isn't given a lot to work with, but doesn't embarrass herself with the material, and the less said about Duchi the better. The only other actresses with billing (Darian Caine and Chelsea Mundae, Misty's sister) take part in an artsy-fartsy goth schoolgirl lesbian three-way (tats, nose piercings AND plaid skirts, oh my!) that serves only to lead into the Billy/Misty deflowering and don't get much of a chance to do more than grope.

Look. As a movie, this is pretty much ass. It's certainly not Citizen Kane (it's not even the Citizen Kane of softcore), but it is serving its niche, and serving it well, so there's no fault in that, really. This might be a good title for couples who aren't all that anxious to go the full monty with hardcore smut: no silicone, and there's a little bit of shrubbery south of the equator, too, so those reveling in the natural look will be pleased. But do not go in expecting anything more than a mildly dirty picture made on the cheap, because you'll be disappointed.
