70's film-making everyone should forget!
3 February 2003 | by lambiepie-2See all my reviews

I came across this one and really wished it was never made. The story was awful, the acting was awful, the clothes were awful, but it did get to promote a few seconds of hot "disco music and disco dancing." I don't want the 70's remembered for this mess.

I am under the impression that being these actors were teens as I was in the 70's that's how it "was" for us. Not really. This is about a young teen girl who gets raped by two other guys, while she's out with her boyfriend. Then, to put more on her frail shoulders, her family dies while laughing in the car and not paying attention to the road. Then, we jump to 8 years later where she's in Los Angeles as a hooker! Okay, very interesting. I've seen better 70's films address this. I got the impression the lead actress was hired because she fit the "average white girl" image of that time. In looking at her, I got traces of every actress who was ever on an "ABC movie of the Week" or "Police Woman" -- same look, same shape, same face. You'd never know there was any other kinda actress back then. Then the guy who raped her looked like a cheaper version of Dennis Weaver in "McCloud", the other guys were cookie cutter versions of Greg Evigan, Burt Reynolds or "fat-pig-slob-guy."

I had a problem with a few women playing prostitutes, I was wondering if they were over 18 because back then in the 70's, ya never know and that made me real uncomfortable about this film as well. Even for the 70's this film was bad. It had no rhyme or reason, the only thing is looking at the guy who played "The Pick Pocket" and thanking your stars that he met up with Martin Scorsese instead of Chuck Trainor.

God awful film any way you look at it.
