I donít know why I did it. I donít know why for the life of me I decided to rent this notorious stinker in the first place. I guess I did it because of all the hoopla surrounding it, or maybe because thereís some nice Bo Derek nudity in it. I donít know, I just donít know. All I know is that I saw the box at the University Library (can you believe it?) and decided to rent it to have a little look-see.But then, as the tape rolled on, I realized that there were also some other things that I didnít know:
"One of the worst pieces of filmmaking Iíve ever seen"
1. I didnít know that this film would become a dull nut-bar within the very first 5 minutes
2. I didnít know why this film would look and feel so fake
3. I didnít know that Elmer Bernstein would waste his musical talent on something like this.
4. I didnít know that Bo Derek would be immediately awful and irritating in this film.
5. I didnít know George Kennedy (!) would involve himself in this piece of shit, much less end up a complete jackass on this film.
6. I didnít know that I would find myself fast-forwarding the film just to catch ďthe good parts.Ē
7. I didnít know this film was so poorly acted by everyone here.
8. I didnít know this film had such a shit-ass screenplay full of excessive, rambling dialogue, and pointless subplots with nothing else going on.
9. I didnít know this film just showed plenty of pointless nudity just for the hell of it.
10. I didnít know that the sex scenes would be anything but titillating and instead boring and dull (AND ITíS SEX FOR CHRIST SAKE).
11. I didnít know Bo Derek was playing a FUCKING VIRGIN! (Talk about miscasting) and in turn giving the worst performance in the film
12. I didnít know there would be some attempted dramatic/suspense moments which would end up giving me sheer laughs.
13. I didnít know why the sheik was such an idiot, and the bullfighter would be such a moron and an asshole for that matter too when she sees a naked woman.
14. I didnít know it was Boís beau, John directing it, thereforeÖ
15. I didnít know that this film had some of the worst directing and editing Iíd ever seen.
16. I didnít know why the fuck was this film made in the first place and why would somebody indulge in doing something as wretched as this.
17. I didnít know why I didnít stab myself to rid myself of the pain this miserable excuse of a film inflicted on me.
18. I didnít know why I didnít have a gun to shot that motherfucking asshole studio monkey that approved this film in the first place
19. I didnít know why I didnít beat the hell out of the idiot that bought this film for the University.
20. And lastly, I didnít know why I was such an idiot in renting this filth.
Oh man, the people that did this film should really, I mean really be taken out to the street and be shot or hanged by the balls. Really a textbook example of bad filmmaking, and John Derek shouldíve been rejected and sent back to school and take Filmmaking 101 once more, for Christ sake.In the end, donít waste your time in finding this movie, even if itís for curiosity, since I really doubt youíll be able to survive this whole shit-ass ordeal like I did, and I was lucky to actually survive it. 0-5
