"Joseph Andrews"

Joseph Andrews (1977) is a British comedy based on "THE HISTORY OF THE ADVENTURES OF Joseph Andrews, and his Friend Mr. Abraham Adams" by Henry Fielding, author of Tom Jones. His novel which is available to read free on line for those that are interested. This is similar to Tom Jones in tone, so your enjoyment of that film is a good predictor for whether or not you will like this one. Joseph is a lowly servant who works his way up to footman for Lady Booby, played brilliantly by Ann-Margret. When Lord Booby dies, Lady Booby decides to seduce young, handsome Andrews, but he will have none of it, especially as the love of his life is a lowly kitchen girl, played by Natalie Ogle. He is befriended by Parson Adams, who is his frequent companion in all the mis-adventures fate bestows upon them. Lady Booby's maid, played by Beryl Reid, also wants Andrew's body.

Our two young lovers are subjected to lechery, witchcraft, highwaymen, and the plots by Lady Booby, who has a few skeletons in her closet as well. But it seems nobody was born to the station they thought they were. Ann-Margret shows see-through breasts in a wet bathing costume, and lots of cleavage. Ogle in her first credited performance, shows breasts in three different scenes. She went on to several TV roles in the 80s.

IMDB readers rate this 4.9 of 10. This is an easy one for me to grade. It is a well made period sex farce in the same tradition as Tom Jones, has some nudity, includes a Golden Globe nominated performance by Ann-Margret, and an excellent character performance by Beryl Reid. If you like this genre, you will love this one. C.

    You would expect that a no-budget erotic thriller starring C. Thomas "Soul Man" Howell would not be worth your while, and you'd be right. The erotic bits are insufficient to satisfy somebody looking for a decent soft-core film, and the production values are inadequate to satisfy somebody looking for a real movie.

    In all fairness, the script and directing aren't that bad except that they are derivative. The opening scene looks exactly like the opening scene in Basic Instinct, and other elements mirror Fatal Attraction. Hell, I guess there's only so much one can do with an erotic thriller.

    The real weakness of the film is not that it is derivative, but that it is cheap. About a third of the running time consists of people talking at computer screens while pretending to type. (It's about cyber sex gone bad). I don't know about you, but I don't find simulated typing to be an especially good spectator sport. If you can believe it, I don't even like to watch real typing that much. But I guess that's just me.

    The most fun involved in watch a film like this is to see whose career is really on the fritz. Remember this is a no-budget, straight-to vid, soft porn film which stars Soul Man, so anybody who took a small role in this must be desperate for a paycheck.

    That roster of desperation includes:

    • Ed Begley Jr.

    • Joan van Ark

    • Marina Sirtis

    Sirtis had an especially humiliating role. She had to pretend to be falling-down drunk, and then had to make a sad, unsuccessful pass at Soul Man. She better hope they rev up some more Star Trek adventures for her.

    C. Thomas, like Merlin the Magician, has lived his career in reverse. In 1983 he starred in a Francis Ford Coppola movie based on S.E. Hinton's popular book The Outsiders. That's impressive enough, but what is truly extraordinary is the list of young actors who had smaller roles in that film: Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Emilio Estevez, Patrick Swayze, and Rob Lowe. In the same year, he had a role in a Spielberg film (ET). That happened in the early 1980s.

    Then he started to go backwards. Here's an example of some of the movies he made in the 1990s:

    He has tried directing, as well, with little success. These are the only three films he directed:

    To his credit, he has managed to maintain a career of some kind, keeping his foot in the door, working steadily, making a decent living, hoping for another break of some kind.



    Anne Parillaud:

    Back in the early 1980s, Anne Parillaud was one of the sexiest women in the world. Her face was beautiful, and her body, though very slim, was just about perfectly shaped. Best of all, she got naked regularly. Since Graphic Response had some good caps from 1981 Pour la peau d'un flic, and 1983's Le Battant, I assembled some additional images from his collection.

    • Parillaud in Le Battant (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
    • Parillaud in Pour la peau d'un flic (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    • 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.
