Spies investigate a man who is trying to destroy a planet of women.

There are many naked and topless women in this movie. I’m getting this comment out of the way because I highly suspect that this is most likely the movie’s primary appeal. It’s certainly not the story, which sits there idly for almost twenty minutes at the beginning while the spy flirts with a female visitor and ends up playing strip poker with her; it’s obvious in this case that the plot is the filler, not the strip poker. Despite the superspy approach, there’s really not much in the way of action or violence; even the scene where the bad guys torture one of the women for information seems rather toothless in this regard. Even the alien women who attack in the last part of the movie defeat their enemies by gesturing at them, which causes them to fall down. To sum up, it’s better than ORGY OF THE DEAD (though not as funny), classier than DRACULA: THE DIRTY OLD MAN, and less pretentious than RAPE OF THE VAMPIRE, though it’s probably as stupid as any one of them. The most noteworthy moments in this movie (that don’t involve nudity) are the world’s fastest revolving door and the world’s rudest elevator.
