Dir: Greydon Clark ( Satan's Cheerleaders/ Joysticks)
Starring: John Daniels (Bare Knuckles/Flesh Eating Mothers)
One thing I gotta say is that as far as Sub Genre's of exploitation cinema are concerned , Blaxploitation has to have the most vast variety of different types of films in itself than almost any other genre out there. Although Once this film gets going it is pretty standard stuff for the genre this one starts off as a black , more explicit version of the original Shampoo. I gotta say it works and makes for some rather interesting scenes in the opening moments.
Mr. Johnathon is a hairstylist/ gigolo that is very popular with the ladies in town and this is made clear right away as he is "serving" a female client while another awaits her appointment for some special treatment. Johnathan is having sex with a client while Mrs. Wilson waits in the lobby and impatient to wait demands he make a house call so, like any good stylist he decides to do so although turning down yet another client while he is on his way out the door. Johnathan heads to the Wilson home and before he gets to her he is approached and seduced by Wilson's two young daughters, one of which has a tremendous rear end I have to point out. Mrs. Wilson see's this and is angry, she comes out to scold her daughters and then proceeds to ride him while the girls watch. Thats some odd parenting, no wonder her girls are such sluts. All is not great for Johnathan though, as he is out keeping his appointment, Some goons arrive at the shop to steal his new receptionist who apparently was a girlfriend of Mr. Wilson, A local mobster.
Ass-Kickin': 5.5 out of 10 ( Not much until the closing moments but there is a chainsaw and that is cool)
Jive:4 ( Not real heavy on the classic dialog you would expect from a Blaxploitation film)
Funk:4 ( No part of the soundtrack really stands out, Except from the opening theme but not on par with some of the classic music of the genre)
Playa's and Whitey's:5 ( Nothing real special here, The gay side kicks are good for a few laughs though)
Ass and Tittay's: 7 ( Allot to be seen here and the young daughter has an ass to die for, Some real choice bodies are shown in this one)
Overall on the Funk-O-Tron: 5.5 out of 10
