MOVIE ADS: SEX APPEAL
1988 newspaper ad from Bogotá Colombia
The last time I saw this movie, was during the early nineties!
Sexy comedies were a-dime-a-dozen back in the eighties.
These types of films were also incredibly silly, stupid, predictable, and when done correctly, filled with female nudity.... So, what's wrong with that?
I used to take movies like this for granted. But, I appreciate them now.
SEX APPEAL was written by Chuck Vincent and Craig Horrall. It was also directed by Chuck Vincent.
It stars, Louie Bonanno as Tony, Jerome Brenner as Joe, Marie Sawyer as Louise, Marcia Karr as Christina, Jeffrey Hurst as Donald, and Tally Chanel aka Tally Brittany as Corrine.
Gloria Leonard, Veronica Hart, Candida Royalle, Taija Rae, and Samantha Fox, also make appearances.
Tony does his homework in the bathroom
Tony fantasizes about a women that appears on a bus stop poster.
He's constantly being rejected by women.
When he spots a magazine ad for a book called SEX APPEAL, he rushes to a book store and purchases a copy.
He follows the instructions in the book.
A short time later, he moves into his own place, and "wackiness ensues".
There's a good and bad side to fantasizing
QUOTE from the movie.....
"That big mouth of hers has several uses"
A legit VHS was released in the United States by VESTRON.
I'm NOT sure, but I think the turds at LIONSGATE own the rights to SEX APPEAL. That may explain the absence of a legit region one DVD.... So, you'll have to settle for a grey-market disc.
Samantha Fox and Taija Rae
I don't know if there are any legit home video releases of this movie in other countries.
I do NOT understand the folks at LIONSGATE.... What's the point of having a home video branch that does NOT release most of the films in it's vaults?
I used to buy their products, but now, I avoid them.....
