Pick-up (1975)

Director: Bernard Hirschenson

Starring: Jill Senter, Alan Long, Gini Eastwood, Tom Quinn, Bess Douglass, Don Penny, Elizabeth Sinn, Nate Clark

More info: IMDb

Tagline: It was the longest ride of her life!

Plot: Sexy hippie chicks Carol and Maureen get more than they bargained for when they hitch a ride with groovy hippie dude Chuck in his nifty mobile bus home. The trio get lost in the Florida Everglades following a fierce rain storm and embark on a startling spiritual journey of self-discovery.

My rating: 3/10

Will I watch it again? Derp-di-NO.

#28 on 42nd Street Forever Vol. 2: The Deuce (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT)

I have no idea what I just watched but it wasn’t interesting or entertaining. There’s lots of soft-core 70s drive-in sex, TONS of nudity and a bus. There’s very little story, not that there needs to be much of one, but this picture could have used something to serve as a reason to make this picture besides getting a couple of girls and a guy naked. Nudity is fine and all but it can get old. There is an attempt to inject an antagonist but his role is utterly pointless and his Southern accent is annoying and insulting. The music is juvenile and the songs are ‘soft rock of the 70s’ cheesy with the female singer off pitch for a few notes. Ouch. This isn’t the kind of film the trailer promises and it’s not the grindhouse exploitation flick I wanted to see. It’s more of a drama with boobs and a boring one at that. It makes MONSTER A-GO GO (1965) look a lot more fun at this point.
