3.0 out of 5 stars Not as Good as It Sounds
Reviewed in Canada on February 19, 2012
As a '70s exploitation flick, this is just ok--I've seen much better and I've seen worse. Noted singer (Leslie Uggams) becomes stranded in hicksville after a gig and becomes the object of desire for the slightly off-balance wanna-be entertainer of the film's title. Problem is, Eddie is the "kept man" of Big Bertha (Shelley Winters) and she ain't about to give up her prize stud!

On paper it sounds like a dream: Ted Cassidy (Lurch from "The Addams Family"), Shelley Winters and Leslie Uggams in a tale of backwoods rape and depravity, but somehow it doesn't live up to its potential. Winters gets off a few great one-liners ("I don't care if she farts Chanel No. 5", "Eddie knows alot about poontang but don't know nothing about women") and calls Uggams a "vicious black little b**ch", and Eddie (Michael Christian) looks great in a wifebeater, but somehow it just isn't enough to save the movie. Uggams has such a chip on her shoulder from the beginning, we don't really sympathize with her. **NOTE** See the screen grabs I posted in the Images section of this product.

The screenplay was written by B.W. Sandefur, who must have loved writing these backwoods stories; he's the guy responsible for the worst episode of "Charlie's Angels"--the dreadful "Moonshinin' Angels" from the show's final season.

Okay to see once; but IMO it doesn't have much replay value.

Three Stars.
