Play-Mate of the Apes (2002)
Three sexually ravenous female astronauts land on a planet of bad gorilla suits in this surprisingly funny send-up of Planet of the Apes from the prolific John Bacchus (The Erotic Witch Project). Like most of the numerous Seduction Cinema titles directed by Bacchus, the accent here is on ribald humor, copious nudity, and a great deal of softcore lesbianism. Genre veterans Debbie Rochon (as Dr. Cornholeous), Darian Caine, Misty Mundae, and Bacchus himself (under his acting pseudonym of Zachary Winston Snygg) do a great job in balancing the crudity and nudity this time around, and the film is miles better than the same year's Erotic Survivor 2. The level of humor is best exemplified by the neon-pink gay ape Dr. Kweera (Dan Schwab), but for a sophomoric frat-party sex movie, it is as good as one might hope, and certainly miles ahead of many of the studio's recent offerings (not to mention the disastrous big-budget film it successfully "apes").

Audience Reviews for Play-Mate of the Apes
More fun than a barrel of monkeys and Tim Burton's misfire combined. Misty Mundae and Anoushka are hot astronauts who crashland on a planet...oh hell, you know the story, just add in lots of lezzie lovin'. Good gags and funny names (Dr. Cornholeus, har har!) and even the title pun gets a hearty chuckle.More
