Movie Reviews

Disney-esque sex comedy
04/20/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"In deciding whether or not "The Swinging Cheerleaders" is for you, it might help to know that you won't find anything in the movie resembling the suggestive scene depicted on the front of the video box. Sure, there's some sex and nudity, but not a whole lot of it, and it's pretty tame, relatively speaking. If you're expecting cheap T&A thrills, you'll probably be disappointed, and you'd be better off looking elsewhere. I'm not familiar with any of Jack Hill's other works, nor am I qualified to expound on any cultural or social signifigance behind "The Swinging Cheerleaders." It's commendable that they tried to instill real quality and morals into this movie instead of just churning out some mindless exploitation film. That's probably why this is apparantly considered one of the best films of the genre. In my opinion, it's okay, but definitely not great. It's all kind of wholesome and bland in a Disney sort of way, but with some sex and nudity thrown in. The ending is strangely abrupt and could've benefited from an extra scene or two. Rainbeaux Smith is my favourite part of this movie. She's very sexy and cute and sweet, and I wouldn't mind seeing anything else she's been in."
Kitschy 70's Film from the days of Drive-In Theaters

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this film as part of a Cheerleader triple feature with my husband, then boyfriend at the local drive-in theater. It was the only film to have a plot and to hold my interest. In addition, it had a talented cast, my favorites being Colleen Camp and Rainbeaux Smith. The story is not deep, but then again, this movie doesn't pretend to make a big political statement or address social issues. It is just mindless campy fun from the 1970's, with some sex thrown in. It reminds me of an adult cartoon, and has been referred to by Director Jack Hill as a "Disney Sex Comedy." The picture quality is excellent and crisp, which really brings out the cartoonish, artificial look of the sets. (Jack Hill shot this film in 12 days, so you're not looking at a big budget production.) The men's feathered haircuts are especially hilarious, and be sure to check out the psychedelic wallpaper in the Star Jock's apartment. The DVD includes Director's Commentary which is just as interesting as the movie itself, plus the 30-second and 60-second trailers. This film is considered the best of the "B-Movie" cheerleader genre and is a great "cabin fever" movie to watch over and over again. For those of you baby boomers who saw this film in a drive-in, it will be a nostalgic reminder of your teenage years."
