Editorial Reviews

At a typical Southern California high school a rash of murders of cute campus co-eds threatens to get in the way of a football game. Hudson stars as a lecherous instructor in this satire written and produced by Gene Roddenberry from Francis Pollini's novel.

A great spoof from the 70's.

Most of the "R" rating is for provocative and suggestive situations, language, or topics of conversation, although 99% is left to the imagination of the viewers.

This amazing film is finally, officially available on DVD, and in a remastered form!

Oh, give me a break! I happen to really enjoy this movie because it is funny and it is a movie. Almost every complaint makes it appear as if it was more than just a movie. What's wrong?

This is a rare film and because of the story content it will probably never get release on DVD. It's a comedy, not a political correct idea that every person is trying to live by today.

One letter stated that Rock Hudson character rape these girls. Rape? I would advise this person to watch this movie again. These girls were enjoying the sex they were having not screaming and yelling for help.

This movie was meant to entertain not to focus on somebody's politically correct concept. If you don't like the movie don't watch it!

An odd, (and hardly publicized) little black-comedy/bedroom farce written and produced by STAR TREK creator Gene Roddenberry and directed by Roger Vadim (AND GOD CREATED WOMAN, BARBARELLA). One could understand Vadim involved with this piece of light-hearted sleaze, but Roddenberry? Boasting a great and diverse cast with Rock Hudson, Angie Dickinson..., Telly Savalas, Roddy McDowell, Keenan Wynn, and James Doohan (Star Trek's Mr. Scotty himself), the film has dark humor, [love]situations, and a murder mystery to boot. Rock Hudson, in one of his weirder and misogynistic roles, plays a coach/counselor (Tiger) at a western university. He's bedding some of the college ... coed's, killing them when they want commitment, and leaves their bodies strewn along various parts of the university (a far cry from his characters in films with Doris Day). An on-campus investigation (headed by Telly Savalas as Capt. Sam Surcher) begins and Tiger is the prime suspect. In the meantime, one of his students, Ponce (John Carson) is having a tough time scoring with girls. Tiger (Hudson) is willing to give the young man some advice. Then, enlists the help of Miss Smith (Dickinson) to help Ponce along but gets (and gives) more than she bargains for. Much of the humor is the relationship of Hudson's and Dickinson's characters in the film when helping out Ponce (Carson), and the weirder humor comes when Tiger (Hudson) is "sampling" the coeds. The film is slightly entertaining. Satirical at times with it's point of view of women and the education system. However, it is mostly worth watching just to see these actors play against type. A curiosity from the man who created STAR TREK. Note: Look for actress Joanna Cameron (as Yvonne), one of Hudson's ...co-ed/victims.Read more ›

Roger Vadim's twisted satire of Southern California and the American education program was a flop on first release, and it was a long time before he dared return to the USA to make another feature. But today PRETTY MAIDS ALL IN A ROW definitely has the hallmarks of a masterpiece, anchored by four brilliant performances. First off, Rock Hudson in perhaps his last important picture. He's a little fleshy and with his shirt off the camera seemes reluctant to travel past his navel for fear of exposing some extra weight on his hips. And Vadim's cameraman (Chuck Rosher, who later did A WEDDING and THREE WOMEN for Robert Altman) hones in on some penetrating closeups which really show up his crows feet--he's lived and that seasons his character. As usual, he's the men girls want and the man boys want to be, but here it's a deeper and considerably darker version of himself than he ever let people see on the screen. His ideal married life is something of a sham, or is it? A cryptic epilogue with Telly Savalas makes us wonder if "Tiger" hasn't really the perfect marriage after all. Vadim needed a larger-than-life star for "Tiger" and he certainly got one.

Matching him at every stroke is the young John David Carson, the boy who can't seem to get a date and walks around with a clipboard covering his arousal at all times. Carson plays "Ponce de Leon Harper" as though to remind us of his own perpetual fountain of youth. Whatever happened to this actor? He goes from boy to man in a series of believable, subtle segues; and let me tell you, it can't have been easy playing the kid whom Rock Hudson takes under his wing. Carson makes it all look easy.

Gene Roddenberry was a wacky guy. And I mean that as a high compliment. After leaving Star Trek, he really let himself go nuts, and we have a singularly wild film as a result. It's no secret that Mr. Roddenberry had an eye for the ladies and that he embraced the sixties youth movement with enthusiastic abandon. Freed from the constraints of television, this is the result. While it never quite decides what kind of film it's going to be, I think that's in its favor... it's a little bit of everything in proportions that you'd never normally find. I'm not sure it hits any of its notes with total success, but what it lacks in that department, it more than makes up for in sheer chutzpah. Is it a post-Barbarella, Roger Vadim romp? Check. A forty-something's fantasy of what it must be to come-of-age at the tail end of the swingin' sixties? Check. Is it a romantic comedy? Check. Is it a crime drama about a serial killer? Check. A murder mystery? Of course. Does Rock Hudson wear what appears to be a mumu? Yes, again. Do we have a police team made up of Telly Savalas, James Doohan, and Keenan Wynn? Yup. Is it drive-in goodness? Uh-huh. Does it get highbrow, with Rock (as Gene's sometimes-surrogate) pontificating on the ills of modern education, quoting Moliere, rappin' with his high school students, and mackin' around like a hepcat Captain Kirk? Absolutely. Does a vital plot point involve a frightened teenaged boy backing away from Angie Dickinson and sitting on a booze-filled, chocolate duck statue? Yes, again. (What great film doesn't have such a sequence?) Is it full of awkwardly inappropriate pedagogical conduct? Oy! Oh, boyoboyoboy. Yessireebob. Do we even see Roddy McDowell praise "great little cheerleaders"? Of course. Gene would not let you down.Read more ›
