Editorial Reviews

Two with Rue! Long before she starred on TV as one of The Golden Girls, Rue McClanahan played Sandy, a reluctant stripper struggling to survive Hollywood After Dark. Embarrassed at having to peel for the public, Sandy is offered a way out by Tony, a loser in love who promises her cold hard cash once he commits a robbery for a sleazy mobster. Unfortunately, a double cross is in the cards along with a couple of murders in this brooding bit of existential exploitation that aspires to be a bit more profound than the average "B"... Plus: Miss McClanahan is Poochie, the "crazy damn whore" who lives in a junkyard in The Rotten Apple. When Ben's car breaks down, the poor guy leaves it by the side of the road with his wife and infant daughter, enters Harry's Junkyard seeking a spare part and, well, steps into Hell. He's promptly seduced by Poochie, framed by owner Harry ("a wrecker of human beings"), and beaten by two corrupt cops, while a bruiser named Blowhard attacks Ben's wife. Re-released as 5 Minutes to Love, this version contains the original title and a lengthy prologue by producer-star Paul Leder (director of I Dismember Mama and My Friends Need Killing) who asks the burning question: "Why would anyone want to make a story like this?"

3.0 out of 5 stars Who Knew, Rue? March 17, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
These films are maybe not quite as campily delicious as they could be, but they are both worth watching, simply for the fact that each of them star a young and sultry Rue McLanahan, who probably wouldn't want to own up to either of these parts, if you asked her now. In one of the films, she plays "Poochie," a junkyard tramp who keeps hapless men seductively occupied while the guy who owns the lot strips their cars. In the other one she plays a hard-luck stripper. In the world of B or camp movies, these both fall a little short of the upper echelon. But they stand out because in both of them Rue stands in.

I love these old exploitation movies, and I love Rue McClannahan, who was obviously typecast early! I never got to see these types of movies on late-night TV when I was growing up, before home video and internet. I think they were still banned by the FCC or some other morality group! I started buying these movies from Sinister Cinema back when I had my first VCR....back then a $19.99 video was considered cheap!
Well, my copy of 'Five Minutes to Love' is apparently long gone, so I was shopping around here today for a replacement.
What I am writing about this at all for is that I noticed that Amazon recommended that this double-feature could be purchased together with 'Five Minutes to Love' as if you would then have three Rue McC. movies. Well- you would still only have 2, because 'The Rotten Apple' is just another title for 'Five Minutes to Love'!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money January 4, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Both films are the kind of movie that was probably perfect for the drive-in back in the fifties or early sixties. You could completely ignore it while making out with your date (or drinking some beer with your high school buds) and not miss a thing. Very low budget, stupid story lines. I'm sure Rue McClanahan would have preferred that these movies had been allowed to remain unresurrected, instead of tarnishing her image after she had passed away. She no doubt had to do crap like this before she established herself as a legitimate actress. The story lines may had been rather risque for the time but are laughable today. As far as the implied suggestion that these movies are sexy, forget about it. A brief moment of bare flesh in one of the films appeared to be a body part shot from a body double. I guess if you want to see Rue is some old fashioned underwear that your granny might of worn, this might be your thing. The Something Wierd folks should be ashamed of fobbing this trash off on the unsuspecting public just to make a buck
