"L'Ultimo Capodanno"

L'Ultimo Capodanno (1998) is an Italian comedy which weaves several stories in a luxury condo on New Years Eve together to culminate in a total catastrophe at midnight. I will get to some of the other players later, but first the main reason to watch this, and also why many of you will need to buy it if it is ever released in your country. Monica Bellucci comes home, starts to listen to answering machine messages, ad undress at the same time. She removes her bra, replaces it with a red one, then takes off her panties about the time the answering machine is playing back clear evidence that her husband has been doing the nasty with her best friend. She then storms around the apartment for about 10 minutes showing her bush and venting her anger.

At the start of the film, a motorcyclist has a big problem with a bus full of a soccer team and their coach, who is also the team mascot, and dressed as a big turkey. The bus is covered with lights, and, perched on top, is a 20 foot high turkey. The motorcyclist survives, and is headed to see his pot smoking buddy in the same condos. Meanwhile, the soccer team meets up with a former team member who is now a gigolo to an aging countess. The countess is throwing a big party at, you guessed it, the same condos. The soccer team crashes the party. The pot smoking kid is planning on setting off two sticks of dynamite at midnight, Bellucci swears revenge on her husband and her best friend, a family man gets the headlights needed to finish his classic car restoration, a businessman is in a S&M outfit being humiliated by a dominatrix for hire, three Mafia men are after him, his neighbor woman has decided to commit suicide because her husband is jailed in some exotic country, etc. The whole bunch are heading straight to the big climax at midnight.

This is a case where the film might have been better had I spoke Italian, as the dialogue might have been clever, which is not easy to translate in subtitles, but I did find some genuine laughs. There is no way I could get mad at a film that has Bellucci naked for so long at the start. IMDB readers have this at 7.0 of 10, but based on only 25 votes. I could find no reviews, and no evidence of a theatrical release. This is a C-, but is a major release from the standpoint of celebrity nudity.

    Possession (1981) First, read Scoopy's review of this film. It is ironic that he called it the Citizen Kane of Squid Fucking films. I realize this is blasphemy, but, while I understand why Citizen Kane is so great technically, I have never liked watching it. So, I guess I agree that this film, which I detested, is fairly compared to Citizen Kane. I would have been a little clearer though, and said this is easily the worst squid-fucking film ever made, even though I have seen very few of them. Adjani started the film with an out-of-control shriek, and never deviated through the entire film, and she gave the most subtle and nuanced performance of the bunch.

    I just got done listening to over half the director's commentary, hoping for something to like about it. It was clear that he was proud of it, and the French went wild over it, but no English speaking country even saw the uncut version until the DVD release two years ago. My only explanation for its popularity in France is that the dubbing must have been a much better story then the original English version. Adjani, who plays two roles in this film, exposes her breasts in three different scenes.

    IMDB readers have this at 6.5 of 10, with women giving it a 9.5. Comments at IMDB mostly think this is more important than the second coming and Lewinski's cigar fetish combined, but most admit that many people detest it. Put me solidly in the detest camp. C-.

    One Night at McCool's (2001)

    The first time I went through this movie, I missed a tiny bit of nudity. Normally, this would not be a big deal, but in this case the ass crack in question belongs to the lovely Liv Tyler, so it's worth going after (collage 1). She is supposed to be pantyless in collages two and three, but if you really think you're looking at her persqueeter, please send me my check for your deed to the Brooklyn Bridge.

    Oh, I guess it might be her womanly essence. It's nice to think so, anyway.

    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 Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or Mick Locke, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    'Caps and comments by Hankster:

    Today we feature Kari Wuhrer from 1997's "Luscious" aka "Vivid".

    Kari was truly luscious in this movie as she bared it all for us to enjoy. She got naked so much that I will be back with a 2nd chapter of Kari's fabulous body.

    Christina Ricci Ricci topless in "Prozac Nation"...'nuff said.

    Angelina Jolie Jolie young and topless before she was really famous. Very nice breast exposure in scenes from "Foxfire" (1996).

    Rebecca Romijn-Stamos
    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    Rebecca making out with Rie Rasmussen, doing a very sexy strip tease, and full frontal underwater in scenes from the Brian De Palma movie "Femme Fatale" (2002).

    Milla Jovovich Another look at Milla baring breasts and bum in scenes from "No Good Deed" aka "The House on Turk Street". As we mentioned the other day, even though it stars Milla and Sam Jackson, it's only available on the Euro-market at the moment.

    Maggie O'Neill
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)

    The UK actress bares breasts, bum and bush in scenes from the Liam Neeson movie "Under Suspicion" (1992).

    An excellent find by Señor Skin...Hutton topless in scenes from the 1981 French movie "Hécate".

    From the Mail Bag
    Spaz wrote in yesterday with a comment about Helvete's 'caps of Cláudia Ohana in "Erotique". He was positive that she did not do a nude scene in the movie. Scoop did a little research, and here' what he came up with...

    The video was distributed in two versions - one version has only three stories, the other version has four. Ohana's nudity is in the story "Final Call" which only appears in the four-part version.
