"Emanuelle in America"

Emanuelle in America (day two) -- First, tonight's nudity. We have Paola Senatore, Lorraine de Selle, and scores of other women I was unable to identify, al nude. I separated the horse scene and the hard core images for those that want o go straight to or avoid that content. I passed on the 8mm snuff film for two reasons. First, it was intentionally very poor quality, and second, it was very disturbing and not at all erotic. It was so disturbing, in fact, that one of the actresses sued, claiming she was traumatized watching her breast sliced off, and she won the lawsuit. Many say this unrated version is the directors cut, which is not at all true.

The directors cut was the one released in Italy, minus the hard core content and the horse scene. This is the French expanded version we now have access to. D'Amato believed that hard core kills eroticism. To illustrate his point, he related one of his personal most erotic memories. Evidently, he spent most of his 13th summer hanging out in a windy parking lot to look up women's skirts when they got out of their cars. Now that is my kind of perv.

Although this film has a very loose narrative structure, being essentially a series of vignettes about Emanuelle, investigative photojournalist, exposing one sex ring after another, it is probably the most coherent plot of ay of D'Amato's films. Lighting, sound, photography and editing are top notch. WHat all this adds up to is the best of the D'Amato/Gemser "Black Emanuelle" series, and an easy C+

    Cold Mountain (2003)

    I though the movie was OK, but overlong, and this sex scene was actually not all that good, but the interaction between Kidman and Jude Law just before the sex scene was very sexy, and very romantic. Kidman did so much with her facial expressions that she didn't even need dialogue and, as I pointed out in my review, four years of starvation, killing, and exposure to the elements made her even more beautiful!

    I finally got a decent VHS screener to work with. It's not ideal, in fact the quality still sucks, but you can now see the details clearly, and  it's a helluvan improvement over the crap I had a couple of days ago.

    • Nicole Kidman. (1, 2, 3) We haven't seen Kidman's butt in a couple of years, and I had forgotten just how beautiful it is. (Collage #3) Unfortunately, when you watch this in the theater, it flashes by so fast and so dark that you are barely aware of it.


    Godsend (2004)

    The first nude scene for 2004!

    As reported today by Coming Soon and JoBlo, this location - - contains a link to two movie files, featuring a sex scene with Rebecca Romijn and Greg Kinnear where she's quite clearly topless, in good light. The name of the movie is Godsend, a De Niro thriller/horror film about cloning.

    If the link is dead by the time you check this, I downloaded it, so I'll put it in the Funhouse tomorrow.

    Here's the big kicker: the studio has announced in the trades that they are going to cut the film to make a PG-13 rating. Considering the amount of sport-humping going on here, this scene may disappear altogether from the theatrical release, and there is no guarantee it will show up on the DVD. Remember, there was toplessness in the first cut of Reindeer Games that did not appear in tyhe theater, and then did not even re-appear on the "extended director's cut DVD". So this may be your one and only chance to see this.

    Here are some small captures, just in case you miss the film clip:

    • Rebecca Romijn (1, 2)



    Uncle Scoopy,

    With the 50th Anniversary of the Bunny Magazine, I went through the data of all the playmates and found the “average” playmate of the first 50 years based on their “playmate data sheets”: 35-23-35, 115 lbs, 5' 6", 22 years old. I then went through the data sheets again and found 5 playmates that came the closest to meeting these statistics: Miss December 1961 Lynn Karrol  (35- 22-35 115 lbs,  5' 6.5", 22 years old), Miss November 1967 Kaya Christian (35.5-23-34, 115 lbs,  5' 6", 21 years old), Miss April 1975 Victoria Cunningham (36-23-35, 115 lbs, 5' 6", 22 years old), Miss July 1987 Carmen Berg (35-23-35, 115 lbs,  5' 7", 23 years old), and Miss January 1991 Stacy Leigh Arthur (36D-23-35, 115 lbs, 5' 7", 22 years old). When push comes to shove, Miss April 1975 Victoria Cunningham is statistically the “most average” since of the five her birthday (May 28, 1952) is the closest to the “average” birthdate of November 7, 1956.

    When I was looking at the data, I noticed a trend that was occurring throughout the years. For those people who think that the playmates of yore were better looking, I actually have a mathematical argument in their defense: the hourglass index. I take the average of the bust and hips and then subtract the waist. This index gives us the “curves” of a woman. The higher the score, the more she is shaped like an hour glass; the lower the score, the more “androgynous” she may appear. Through the 50 years, the average bust and hips have gotten smaller while the waist has gotten bigger. Thus, the hourglass index has been getting smaller:
    1950s 12.75, 1960s 13.05, 1970s 11.69 , 1980s 11.55, 1990s 10.97, 2000s 9.94. The highest index (18.0) belongs to Miss June 1958 Judy Lee Tomerlin and the smallest (6.5!) belongs to Miss April 2003 Carmella DeCesare.

    Most of the early data is incomplete, however, since almost half of the playmates in the 1950s did not have a data sheet (36 of 73) or the data sheets were incomplete.

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    Graphic Response
    • Juliette Binoche,topless and gettin' it on in scenes from "Damage" (1992).

    • Theresa Russell, full frontal and gyno-cam views in scenes from "Eureka" (1986).

    'Caps and comments by PAL:

    Recently I came across one of these German mid-70's soft core flicks. I'm willing to bet Fun House readers have never heard of any of the chicks (like me). The German title "Zimmermädchen machen es gern" means something like "Chambermaids like to do it". I suggest we call it "The 5-B Inn"...for bed, breakfast and the other three B's. The plot is like in any other movie of this genre...horrible. But I liked the chicks' natural, unfaked breasts.

    • Elke Kraus...fair warning, there is more than bush, there is some serious jungle here!
    • Karin Lorson, more full frontal.
    • Ursula Stiegelmair, even more full frontal nudity.
    • Christine Szenetra, yup, even more full frontal nudity. (1, 2)

    Some other stuff...

    'Caps and comments by Dann:

    "To Live and Die in L.A."
    Very good 1985 crime thriller by William Friedkin of "The French Connection" fame, once again featuring a very exciting car chase.

    When a Secret Service agent gets too involved in trying to snag a master counterfeiter, he himself crosses the line. A fun, exciting movie to watch, with an interesting small role by a very young Jane Leeves of the "Frasier" TV show.

    'Caps and comments by Oz:

    "The Intended"
    A voluptuous. topless Janet McTeer in The Intended.

    "Mr Destiny"
    A very sexy Rene Russo in Mr Destiny and cleavage, such as it is, by Courtney Cox.

    Dimboola is a well-known play and movie in Australia about a wedding in the town of Dimbools. Most nudity comes from Claire Binney, who plays a stripper at a bucks turn. Claire Dobbin shows a bit of bush in a midnight streak and boobs by Sue Ingleton and Laurel Frank. In a touch of irony, the movie opens up with a fire in the local pub. This pub was burnt down a couple of months ago.

    "Hysterical Blindness"
    No nudity in Hysterical Blindness, but some lovely cleavage by Uma Thurman (what was Ethan thinking??) and Juliette Lewis.

    • Juliette Lewis (1, 2)

    "Things Change"

    Topless and bare butt shots by Camelia Kath in The Killing Time.

    "Chasing Holden"
    Some sexy caps of Rachel Blanchard in Chasing Holden.

    • Rachel Blanchard (1, 2, 3)
