How low can you go ?

"First of all,I have seen every film Miss Mansfield has appeared in (except ''It happened in Athens'' and ''The George Raft Story''.
''The Fat Spy'' is in my opinion her worst,and Lord knows that she played in several bombs.
The reason she appears ''fat'' as one reviewer noticed,is because she was pregnant,and if you watched very closely you will notice that the cameraman did his best to conceal her ''condition''.
Don't get me wrong,I am a big fan of psychotronic movies,high-camp,grade Z,''straight-to-the drive-in'' type of movies.
However this particular is soooooooo bad,that it is difficult to watch in one viewing.
It seems to want to be a ''Beach party'' type of movie,then some kind of musical,then comedy,to end up in a nightmare.
This movie with a really low quality soundtrack,should only be purchased by die-hard fans who are determined to own EVERY film Miss Jayne Mansfield appeared in.
The interesting cast is totally wasted,and I use this expression in the 2 senses of the word.And wouldn't you be if you were to be involved in such a turkey? I think you would
Trivia:Jayne was pregnant with Mariska in this film.She was also pregnant with Mickey Jr. during the filming of ''The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw''"
