Debbie Does Something, at least...

The user comments on imdb of the adult film classic Debbie Does Dallas are hilarious.
Doug Galecawitz says:

What does one say about a film of such breathtaking beauty and atonishing artistry. Masterfully directed by Jim Clark in 1978, this film stands on the pantheon of cinema genius. How Deer Hunter won Oscars over this remains one of the huge miscalculations on behalf the motion picture academy. Solid skillful directing, is backed up 100% by acting that borders godlike. Wonderful cinematography, magical camera technique, and a highly unique style of story telling as the titillating plot unfolds with unending suspense and timing. Cinema was changed forever by this movie, and in Cannes it got a standing ovation of over 15 minutes. Perfection. I even saw boobs.

Summary: Disappointing....

As much as I enjoyed the lush photography and many-faceted storyline of "Debbie Does Dallas", I don't think the film is entirely successful as a complete work of entertainment. Don't get me wrong, I immediately connected with the lead character, Debbie, an innocent cheerleader who works at a sporting good shop run by a guy who looks kind of like Billy Crystal, but I felt the character's motivations are flawed as they move through the film. The sporting good store owner pays for the entire cheerleading squad's trip to Dallas (they never actually *get* to Dallas, so the title's a cheat!!) just for one night with Debbie? That plot twist didn't make me sympathize with Debbie.

Also, there are a lot of naked people in this. I couldn't believe it! I am in no way a *prude*, but the amount of nude men and women was shocking! Not the kind of movie I'd expect from the "work out" section at Blockbuster.

Anyway, great soundtrack and photography (many of the shots, such as the wet T-Shirt car wash) obviously influenced current directors like Jim Jarmusch and Merchant/Ivory. But I can't wholly recommend it. It was like watching a porno!

WHA?!??!?!!? HHAHAHAHHAHA@!!!!

Debbie Does Dallas is definitely a must-see and i say that from personal experience. The first porn with a plot! can you believe it?!?!? But i mostly respect this film because it has real-looking 70's women - just as nature intended them... before Walmart, Target, Bartell's and so on - had all those sales on razors and shavers....

yeahhhhh you know what i'm saying...

I can't say i'm one to promote the natural hairiness of girly parts (since i am almost comparable to a mister bigelsworth of needless shavers) - but i definetly give the movie props for not hiring barbie dolls as the cherrleading squad

two thumbs up... WAY UP... some hairy arses!

come on ash, everyone knows that 70s porno is all about the plot and the hairy women. it was the golden age of porn, after all. it was all either rollergirl or hairy ass.

    Is Bigfoot Actual or made up? For over 4 hundred a long time, there are actually reporting’s of a man like creature that is entirely coated in hair.

    Sasquatch is a big deal to me every year, and I don't plan on missing it any time soon. But seriously, the lineup gets stronger and more interesting every year. I can't wait until next year!

    Oh MAN. I didn't even look into Sasquatch this year and I'm glad I didn't, because I wouldn't have been able to go. I've never known and liked so many of the bands playing.
