Maybe if I'd found just one of the women attractive it'd be a different story but as it was I couldn't wait for the end.
Dymon Enlow
The movie starts with Adolph Schwartz (Edward Schaaf), an old German guy who looks like Adolph Hitler, being killed, when a hungry piranha is dropped into his bathtub.
Michael King
Kitten Natividad is the Greek Chorus, a naked narrator who excitedly details the wide assortment of characters who frequent the various story lines.

"Up" is so much better than other soft porn movies. It has lots of large, naked breasts and bizarre, creative dialogue and plot. The acting, cinematography, editing and picture quality is all top-notch stuff. However, I'm not sure it is worth the exhorbitant price. If Russ is going to charge 30-40 dollars for his fine films, he could at least spend an hour and a half doing a commentary track.

Outrageously gratuitous and excessive in every sense of the word, Russ Meyer's Up! cleverly mixes busty babes, bloody violence, blouse-busting femme fatales, and well-endowed vixens into an erotic comedy of epic proportions. The fact that the plot is a murder-mystery that no one cares to solve, a narration by Kitten Natividad is bursting with Shakespearean poetry explaining characters no one cares to profile, and unimportant timeframe titles keep popping up as each scene starts hardly matters; anyone watching Up! is clearly in it for the over-the-top exploitation and generous doses of female nudity.

Kitten Natividad is the Greek Chorus, a naked narrator who excitedly details the wide assortment of characters who frequent the various story lines. Frequently she'll recap events with slightly different clips of footage and plenty of elaborate, riddle-filled, lyrical observations. Adolf Schwartz (Edward Schaaf), a depraved Nazi warlock and S&M fetishist, is brutally murdered in his bubblebath with the deadly fish Harry the Nimrod. There are many suspects, courteously announced by Kitten, but little motive and fewer complaints. It's a baffling puzzle with only the clue of a black-leather-gloved culprit.

Meanwhile, Margo Winchester (Raven De La Croix) is viciously attacked during a morning jog, and winds up accidentally killing her rapist. When the entire event is witnessed by local policeman Homer Johnson (Monty Bane), he coerces her into a few sexual favors to overlook the killing. Later, she gets work selling hotdogs at Sweet Li'l Alice's (Janet Wood) Cafe; in short order she's also "romantically" involved with Alice's husband Paul (Robert McLane).

The film begins quite mysteriously in a dungeon where a young man is torturing an Adolf Hitler look-alike... We then quickly cut to a stunning nude, played by Kitten Natividad, who teasingly introduces the audience to the setting...

We are in Northern California, in a small, rural community... Just outside of town, a very beautiful, buxom young lady is hitchhiking along a lonely country road... She is picked up by a young man, who happens to be the infant terrible of the local rich set... He tries to take advantage of the girl's abundant sexuality but after a short sequence involving a brutal rape, she turns the tables and ends up killing him...

Russ Meyer has never been one to linger too long on a single shot... He likes to cut, especially to ladies running naked as jaybirds around the lush countryside... In this case, however, he has added more than just a tease with Kitten Natividad, who narrates the events of the story with a husky, British accent while displaying her terrific figure... The true star of the show, however, is Raven de la Croix, whose piercing dark eyes and fully rounded, voluptuous figure combine with some firmly loyal acting for an explosive performance...

This turned out to be a very enjoyable movie. The actress who played the role of Margo Winchester,Raven De La Croix actually

made this movie.

A German(Nazi) type person is killed after someone slips a

pirana into his bathtub.Undercover agent Margo Winchester makes

her entrance by jogging down the highway.She is nearly raped and killed by one of the locals.She soon gains the confidence of the locals and begins investigating the murder.There is also a good

action scene involving an Indian maiden.The true murderer is

finally revealed after our hero Margo Winchester is stabbed.Her

and the murderer have a nude battle all over the countryside.She

turns out to be a Los Angeles Police Detective.A very good movie

on the Russ Meyer scale. I only wish the Raven De La Croix had made more movies.

Up! tells the tale of Adolph Schwartz (Edward Shaaf), who looks a little like another well known Adolf, who has been murdered in his American castle. His death was caused by a piranha dropped into his bath....but who is the culprit? Was it The Ethopian Chef (Elaine Collins), The Headsperson (Mary Gavin aka Candy Samples), the lovely Limehouse (Su Ling), or could it have possibly been Leonard Box (Larry Dean), or maybe blow-in Margo Winchester (Raven De La Croix), whose antics with the local men seem to be taking all the attention away from his murder, or could it have been one of the many other strange characters who dwell in the town. Who knows, but with the help of the pneumatic Greek Chorus (Kitten Natividad), we will find the answer...

For all that the plot is quickly dispensed with in order to present the usual Meyer film experience. Big breasted women running often naked through the countryside. While the formula is much the same, Meyer takes it to the limit in this film. Along with the usual nudity there is a good deal of violence which makes Up! less fun than many of Meyer's earlier films. In fact there is something disturbing about the film that is rather difficult to get a handle on. Make no mistake the women are beautiful and the over the top performances by De La Croix and Natividad alone make this film inherently watchable but don't go looking for great story telling here or even a plot that makes a great deal of sense.

There are two decent extras on this disc. The first is Pussy Galore Night: Interview with Kitten Natividad (12 minutes 10 seconds) and No Fairy Tale...This!: Interview with Raven De La Croix (18 minutes and 4 seconds). Both interviews are interesting looks into Russ Meyer's world, both cinematically and personally.
