Critic Reviews for Mudhoney
Meyer proves he's a square at heart, that he prefers big breasts over good acting and makes undemanding B films.
Audience Reviews for Mudhoney
Being a Russ Meyer movie, Mudhoney full of extreme, over-the-top characters and craziness. And big boobs. As easy as it is to dismiss this movie as a sleazy excuse to see stacked women naked, there actually is a story lurking around. Sure, you've probably heard it before dozens of times but still. The finale is pretty great and even if Meyer didn't include the obvious... assets, Mudhoney would still make a great B-movie.
While director Russ Meyer isn't perhaps the first film maker you'd go to for a morality tale, his work has an interesting take on the struggle between good and evil, often within the same character. The theme is how one man's evil can bring a whole community down to his level.
Not content with having one buxom blonde in his film, Meyer added the two sexually available sisters who wear low cut dresses open to the navel. Their purpose is pure titillation, as they don't advance the story any, and simply provide temptation for the male members of the cast, so an extra half-star for that.
'Mudhoney' Good, Sticky, Sleazy Trash
What else would you expect from B-movie meister Russ Meyer? Hal Hopper as Sidney Brenshaw is one of the slimiest, most loathesome screen characters ever.
