Audience Reviews for Ginger
If I'm ever feeling nostalgic about the 70s, I'll watch this again to remind me of why I shouldn't be. Horrible fashion, blatant racism, lousy acting, some of the most non-arousing sex scenes, and on-screen lectures about the evils of drugs lifted straight out of a 7th grade health class gang up to assault the senses in this grindhouse failure. Cheri Caffaro sleepwalks through her role, and one can't blame her for sedating herself while delivering lines laced with words like "nigger" and "jungle bunny." The one black character in the film never stops reminding us how much he lusts after "sweet white ass." "Ginger" is cinematic proof that the 70s were awful in their own special way.
Usually the first in a movie series is the best, but this is the worst of the Ginger movies. Somehow the plots got better as they went along. Still, it does have Ginger, the cool "female James Bond" character, and I like her.
The direction is about as competent as I was in grade 10... which isn't horrible. The baddies (save for the one who likes "stuck up white bitches") are about as threatening as a wet paper bag, locked behind glass. The private detective who employs Ginger was probably just the dude who worked behind the deli counter wherever in New Jersey they filmed this flick. The nudity and sex scenes are about as sexy as a slap in the face with a bag of potatoes. They basically consist of awkward stripping followed by one lying on top of the other while wiggling a bit. But when all is said and done, this is an exploitation film, that no doubt could be a hoot for exploitation fans (like me) on a slow night. One man's trash is another man's treasure, and trash this is, although not at the height of John Waters, not in the gutter either.
