“I regrettably saw this movie back to back with the German film u0026quot;Grimmu0026#39;s Fairy Tales for Adultsu0026quot; and while both films are obviously u0026quot;for adultsu0026quot;, the former actually managed to capture some of the spirit of the original Grimmu0026#39;s Fairy Tales while this film is your typically smutty, painfully unfunny, and crassly stupid u0026quot;parodyu0026quot; of the already highly bastardized American versions of the classic fairy tales (with a little Mother Goose thrown in for good measure). For instance, in this movie the Old Woman Who Lives in a Shoe (Brenda Fogerty) is a madam, her shoe naturally is a cathouse, and there is a stereotypical 70u0026#39;s black pimp (Sy Richardson). u0026quot;Snow Whiteu0026quot;, of course, is getting it on with her seven dwarfs (for all you people out there with dwarf fetishes). u0026quot;Little Bo Peepu0026quot; has lost her sheep, and apparently her underwear too. Perhaps worst of all, this movie follows the unfortunate 70u0026#39;s trend of being an annoying musical (i.e. u0026quot;Alice in Wonderlandu0026quot;, u0026quot;The First Nudie Musicalu0026quot;) because, of course, thereu0026#39;s a great intersection of musical fans and softcore porn fans.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut let me focus on the positive (what little there is). There is a very early if mostly wasted appearance by a young Linnaea Quigley (who gets naked natchu0026#39;). Evelyn Guerrero, who had a memorable role in u0026quot;Cheech and Chongu0026#39;s Nice Dreamsu0026quot;, has a cameo role (with full-frontal nudity) as one of the u0026quot;S and M Dancersu0026quot;. And perhaps most memorable is Tai Bonet as u0026quot;Schrenednazeu0026quot; (from u0026quot;Arabian Nightsu0026quot;) doing a naked belly dance (for some reason for Mother Gooseu0026#39;s u0026quot;Old King Coleu0026quot;) while rubbing oil all over herself. You just donu0026#39;t see naked belly dancing everyday. But is any of this worth enduring the rest of this movie? Uh, no. Watch u0026quot;Grimmu0026#39;s Fairy Tale for Adultsu0026quot; instead”
