Poison Ivy

Recommended Posts

The bastardization of 'Lolita' with two of America's hottest sex symbols: Drew Barrymore and Tom Skerritt. I'm not sure if reviewing borderline soft core porn is in their wheelhouse, but good God this movie deserves some kind of treatment.

 

It does carry some tell tale signs of a HDTGM film: lost money, spawned 2 direct-to-video soft pornos sequels (along with a 4th one that premiered on the Lifetime Movie Network), and the director came from a professional background working with Roger Corman.

 

This is also one of those movies, speaking subjectively, that I remember fondly: being young, sneaking away to watch it when it came on TV and learning to fetishize male authority figures.

 

Watch it now and it's just....creepy. Looking beyond the surface, the writing and acting was abysmal.

 

And you definitely get bummed that Sara Gilbert doesn't end up with Drew Barrymore in the end.

I always thought Drew Barrymore was hot as Hell in that movie. That was at the peak of her beauty, her late teens-early 20's. She was even hotter in Wayne's World 2 and Bad Girls, though.

Just like Martin Scorsese, Jonathan Demme, Ron Howard and Francis Ford Coppola.

Well, I was trying to stick to likable people.

 

Look, James Cameron doesn't do what James Cameron does for James Cameron. James Cameron does what James Cameron does because James Cameron is James Cameron!
