Editorial Reviews

Russ Meyer’s Vixen. Will jar your senses . . . jerk your emotions . . . straddle your soul. The mind-boggling Erica Gavin . . . the standard by which all "voluptua" must be measured. Vixen . . . is she woman . . . or animal? Primitive forests and British Columbia out-country provide this lush photogenic background for this psychological drama. The lives and motivations of a Canadian bush pilot, his wife Vixen, and members of his fishing lodge are filmatically examined. The camera reveals Vixen’s inner torments, which are demonstrated by her various love-hate sexual relationships with both men and women. Only today’s society could make such an animal a woman . . . or such a woman and animal! Vixen . . . embrace her!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mountains of Fun! September 25, 2004
Format:DVD
It's easy to see why "Vixen!" is one of the late Russ Meyer's more popular movies, with two of those reasons (sorry, this kind of humor is mandatory here) being Erika Gavin. Gavin, as the libidinous title character, seems to be having a great time frolicking through this movie, mounting Canadian mounties, sexually teasing her biker brother or seducing the young couple who stay at the mountain lodge she and her pilot husband operate. Vixen's racism is a bit disconcerting--she frequently hurls racial slurs at her brother's African-American draft-dodging pal Niles--though it seems used largely to set up a plot twist involving communism and hijacking (it'll make sense, sort of, when you see it). Meyer never did hardcore, but the sex in this one isn't as explicit as in some of his later '70s films ("Up" and "Beneath the Valley of the Ultra Vixens" for example). Still, it seems a lot more erotic, with all the men and women embodying sexual archetypes of the day (not to mention Meyer's own erotomanias). It's one of the few Russ Meyer movies where both the women AND the men have good chests. Also toned down are the manic jump cuts and breathless exposition, making "Vixen!" a lot less exhausting viewing experience than other Meyer movies, like "Cherry, Harry & Raquel" or "Up."

Though I'm partial to Meyer's black and white drive-in films, like "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" and "Mudhoney," and "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" is a camp masterpiece, I count "Vixen!" as one of my favorite Russ Meyer movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable Guilty Pleasure July 13, 2007
Format:DVD
Any college male who saw this flick in the 60's will never forget it. For most of us, it was our first introduction to the wacky world of Russ Meyer, with his buxom babes and square-jawed men. The movie begins with a pilot landing his plane in the great north as a voice says, "This is bush country." From then on, you're hooked. Thank you, Russ.

Vixen Palmer (Erica Palmer) is the wife of a Canadian bush pilot... She and her husband run a resort for vacationers, but she utilizes the place more for her erotic exploits than for making money... To say that she is having sexual relations with many is an understatement... She provokes many of the young boys in a nearby town, and basically has a good time...

Everyone seems to know about Vixen's exploits except her husband, who constantly considers her a loving, loyal housewife... The plot moves into high gear when a Communist hijacks the husband's plane and orders him at gunpoint to fly to Cuba...

While Meyer never moved into graphic sex, "Vixen" was one of the early expressing films for the adult market... It contained much simulated intercourse, a lot of nudity, and sex jokes... The film by nature is exploitative, but Meyer always lets the plot move in and out of the erotic encounters, creating a distinct stimulating sex comedy rather than a series of cheap shots... The performances are always exuberant, and--despite the hilarious action--the characters are very realistic...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good flim considering the age April 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of the flims that kicked started the sexual revolution in flim made in the late 60's it's nowhere near scandalious as it once was. I read the Roger Ebert review and decided to purchase this flim and I liked it I recomended it to Russ Meyer fans, and I don't wannan to give away to much of the plot but at the end there is a scene invloving communist and an airplane.
