Movie Info

This routine erotic spy tale stars Darby Hinton as Cody Abilene, a private eye who teams up with the Contessa Luciana (Sybil Danning) and policewoman Beverly McAfee (Lori Sutton) to infiltrate a mansion and discover who is sending computer secrets to the Russians. The Contessa's friend Lady Lillian Chamberlain (Niki Dantine) runs the mansion, where sex is the presiding activity. The chauffeur is busy bedding down both a nephew and niece of Lady Lillian, as well as the nephew's wife; fortunately, driving is not a taxing activity. While four Playboy playmates cavort in various degrees of undress (no full frontal nudity), the mystery of who is selling computer secrets manages to also get uncovered.more

Audience Reviews for Malibu Express


"See this body? This body is a lethal weapon. I could kill you guys in a second."

Forget the fact that it's cheesy beyond belief and hilariously sleazy, Malibu Express is worth watching for it's dorky, corny, utterly lame ladies' man of a protagonist, Cody Abilene. Just the concept that women throw themselves at this guy or that he has any competency as a private detective, makes this one of the most amusing movies I've seen in quite a while. The other actors are as atrocious as their lines, and the plot is somehow boring, absurd and non-existent all at the same time.

If you love the kind of hysterically bad movies that Mystery Science Theater often mocked, definitely check out this prime piece of 80's schlock.

Malibu Express is nothing but a ridiculous, cheap softcore porn action/mystery film...and I had a blast watching it. This film feels like a strange, erotic 80's version of Clue, due to the murder mystery plot. However, this film also has action, racing, chase scenes, hillbillies, cheap sex and nudity, terrible acting and dialogue, and a plethora of other things that B-movie fanatics should find enjoyable. Do not watch this film unless you enjoy a good B-movie, otherwise you will hate it.


Okay folks, for a start, this is a bad movie, but to be honest, that's about 90% of the fun of it, in that it's just so cheesy and cornball, as well as the idea that this kicked off a series of about 12 films from this director, all loosely connected by Playmates, recurring characters and silly gadgets.

Great fun for those who know what they're getting into.
