What's it about
“Image the worst parts of the Bible…but with tits”
When the legendary Goddess of Lust – the first lesbian in creation – is thawed from an icy tomb after centuries of countless missed orgasms, she immediately sets her sights on devouring all manner of young, nubile woman-flesh (read: she f**ks hard.)
Is it good movie?
What in the name of Jupiter’s balls did I just see? I must admit, I’m at a bit of an impasse with this one. I mean, how the hell does a person review a soft-corn porn movie anyway? The problems persist in many forms; not the least of which is how to best cast a critical eye on a film like ‘The Girl Who Shagged Me.’. Do I critique it based on its spankability factor (moderately low by my estimation), or maybe it’s the real-to-fake titty ratio? Better yet…best use of tongue? I dunno. I’ll tell you one thing, shit is hard – and yes, I know what you’re thinking you filthy bastards.
I guess I should just retire to the simplest and most essential part of my job – answering the question of “is it a good movie?” Simple questions call for simple answers. So here’s the simple answer: no, it’s a piece of shit. Normally in cases such as this, I would play the part of smart-ass and equate the acting prowess of the people involved (Misty Mundae and Anoushka) to something on par with a porn flick. Problem is, ‘The Girl Who Shagged Me’ is a porn flick. So I’d say that in this case the acting (minus a scant few issues I had with technique when it came to boob-play) is a rousing success. The direction by “auteur” Tom J. Moose is simple yet effective. The man really knows where to place his camera where some of the trickier shots of chicks going down on each other are concerned. Lighting and music are – as is par-for-the-course –uniformly shitty and, in keeping up with this (not so) startling trend, so is the napkin the script was written on.
To simply dismiss a film like ‘The Girl Who Shagged Me’ and lay claim to hating it would – quite frankly – take far too much energy. Besides, there’s really no reason to hate the film, it is what it is - a soft-core porno flick made for the sole purpose of getting you off. You’re not supposed to watch it to be moved or enlightened.
Video / Audio
VIDEO: Presented in 1.85:1, this shot-on-video production looks fine.
AUDIO: Porno-inspired soft jazz sounds good in this 2 channel mix, though dialog does tend to be a tad on the tinny side.
While not “stacked” by any means, this DVD does offer-up a smattering of extras for fans of this sort of thing. Here’s what you get:
Behind The Scenes: A brief 5 minute segment that showcases the excitement the crew felt in getting American soft-core sensation Misty Mundae in their film.
Misty Goes To London: Its 2 minutes of Misty cruising around the streets of London playing tourist. It’s also 2 minutes I may never get back.
Out-takes and Bloopers: 18 minutes worth of flubbed lines and misbehaving bras. This segment is actually better that the film itself.
Interviews: An incredibly breezy 2 minute segment that interviews some of the “talent” involved in making ‘The Girl Who Shagged Me’ possible. I’ll say this – despite my dislike for it - the folks who came together to make this film are quite a genuine bunch and seem to love what they do. Nothing I say can take that away from them.
The rest of the disc is rounded out with a handful of trailers for films like ‘The Seduction of Misty Mundae’, ‘Erotic Diary of Misty Mundae’, ‘Flesh for Olivia’ (my personal fave) and of course, ‘The Girl Who Shagged Me.’
While it should be obvious from the above review - I was not a fan of ‘The Girl Who Shagged Me’ - there is no doubt an audience out there that this film is suited for. You know who you are and nothing I say will change that
