In Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine - total mindless fun - Dr. Goldfoot (Price - a sly, wicked performance having a hoot of a time) has made a machine to manufacture a bikini clad army of robots who are programmed to seek out wealthy men, marry them and charm them into signing over their assets, before bumping them off. With passing pokes at Princes own AIP films and the Bond films, it is good giggles. Not as sharp as "Comedy of Terrors", it's still great for Prince Fans, people who enjoyed Myers spy spoofs, or those looking for a time-capsule blast from the past, this is an enjoyable diversion!
With Frankie Avalon, Craig Steven, Dwayne Hickman, Deborah Wally turning in good support performances, the Supremes giving a catching theme song, and claymation credits it's perfect popcorn fun. Give a skip on the sequel - Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs - not as stylishly done.
In this rather obvious dig at "Goldfinger", DR GOLDFOOT AND THE BIKINI MACHINE tells the story of the sneaky Dr Goldfoot (Vincent Price in a sly comedic performance), a mad scientist who creates sexy girl robots to seduce and marry rich men before robbing them blind and taking off with all their fortune!
However, when it comes to the young Secret Service agent Craig Gamble (Frankie Avalon), Dr Goldfoot has met his match!
When the beautiful robot Diane (the striking Susan Hart) seduces a young billionaire (Dwayne Hickman), he enlists the help of Craig to help uncover what he is sure is a dreadful plan to rob him of his money.
Clever comedy that dissolves into the predictable with a formulaic slapstick car chase finale and features some macabre cameos from Annette Funicello and Harvey Lembeck as well as BEACH BLANKET BINGO co-star, the late Deborah Walley.
The Supremes sing the catchy title song.
The DVD includes the trailer. (Single-sided, single-layer disc).
Beware - this band of bikini-clad cuties is licensed to kill... with comedy! Featuring Vincent Price and Frankie Avalon, with cameo apperances by Annette Funicello as a decapitated young lady, and Harvey Lembeck chained to his motorcycle. This sex-ational spy spoff is full of thrill-packed fun and gags. Deraged Dr. Goldfoot (Price) has a dream of taking over the universe! So the mad scientest invents a machine that builds sultry, bikni-clad, sexy chicks. Whom he programs to seduce the world's wealthiest men into signing over their fortunes, than permanently scratching them. But when Secret Agent (Avalon) learns of GOldfoot's evil plot, he knows he must destory these gorgeous gold diggers before losing his heart and possible his own live, to the hottest assassins ever built in the history of the 60's Beach Flicks. This is a great classic beach movie that also stars Dwayne Hickman, Susan Hart, Jack Mullaney, and Fred Clark. So if you want to relive the 60's Teen Flicks, watch Dr. Goldfoot And The Bikini Machine tonight, for a bundle of fun, laughs, and bikini-clad girls.
There are some great moments featuring the beach blanket stars of the day, including Frankie Avalon, and good ol Annette makes a cameo appearance. The chase scene at the end of the film is a classic!
The DVD transfer is great, and the film quality makes this nice to watch. Includes the Midnite Movies standard bonus of the theatrical trailer.
To sum it up, this is a silly, silly movie. Don't expect anything profound and I think you'll be surprised at what fun it is to watch.

Quite frankly, this is a terrible movie. But it's so terrible it loops around into being utterly glorious, hence my rating. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Horrible - I allowed for the genre, time period, actors... and it still pained me so much that I could only endure 5 minutes before admitting defeat.Published 13 months ago by Windy
