Raucous and rude satire is plotless and more fixated on the director's personal obsessions than on any kind of message; believe it or not, film critic Roger Ebert co-wrote the script to this mess.
Spoofing talent must be praised, but making a total disaster of a movie, has been been taken to such epic proportions.. So bad, it's almost legendary, even for the idea of killing one's sex drive..
Liked it very much. It's a cartoon with real people.
This is a typical Russ Myers sex farce. There's lots of nudity and simulated sex. There's no real sex and it is chaotic and fast paced. He intentionally made a bad movie, but it's supposed to be a joke. Everything in the movie is supposed to be a joke. It's the last movie that Russ Myers made that tried to have something like a plot. It was made about the time real porn movies got very graphic. A few years latter video tapes put the film porn industry out of business. The story is set in a small town in on the Mexican border. The town is so small the only business is a junk yard. The story is a comedy about a husband and wife with marital problems. The women in the movie all have huge breasts. Of coarse they are nude half the time. The movie spoofs marriage counselors, nude dancing, door to door salesmen, religious radio stations, sex toys, and on the job sexual harassment.
Crazy movie.. not really a movie at all..
Beneath the Valley of the Ultravixens, Russ Meyer's most sexually explicit film yet significantly ups the ante in terms of tongue-in-cheek humour and sexuality, with the main transition being the more satirical comedic elements of the on screen sexuality and the the visual display of unfathomed vaginas rich with bush, as well as some penises too. Although it sounds more like something set up to be a politically important pornography, in actual fact Beneath the Valley of the Ultravixens displays how far sexuality in film has come since Russ Meyer's first in the trilogy, Vixen! The characters are now all exploring nothing but sexuality and so the fun becomes bereft of some of the serious political dramatics previously explored, and it just paves the way with a large quantity of sex.
Of course, it is a blank film which isn't as funny as it tries to be and re-uses the footage much of the time as well as being empty in terms of what usually qualifies as an actual film that isn't pornography, but the raw sexuality of Beneath the Valley of the Ultravixens manages to find the line without missing a heartbeat.
Much of the stupid fun in Beneath the Valley of the Ultravixens comes from the overly energetic and sexually hyperactive lead performance from Kitten Natividad who appears to have had the most possible fun making the film and is vibrant with raw sexual strength in a manner that supports pro-sex feminism as well as being entertaining and comedically valuable.
Russ Meyer should feel proud that his penultimate film is memorable for its satire and big scale sexual graphic qualities.
Essentially, there is no subsistence in Beneath the Valley of the Ultravixens, but the unserious fun and hyperactive characters make it mostly entertaining.
Great late night insanity
Either you know Russ Meyer or you don't. If you do this is not his best but at the same time it's checks all the boxes his films should.
Great Flik! Anne Marie rocks as "The Preacher".
I don't really know how to review this movie other than to say it is a Russ Meyer movie and it is pretty out there! Also it is one of three collaborations with Roger Ebert who wrote the screenplay.
