Critical Rating: Not Yet Rated

Is this a great movie or what? While it's supposed to be a "black comedy," Even Hitler Had A Girlfriend is beyond black. it's chilling, uncomfortable, depressing and enough to make any guy with love handles consider terminal liposuction.

Andren Scott is very Jackie Veron-ish ( you can see a similar characterization in Microwave Massacre) as a pudgy, one-dimensional bachelor named Marcus Templeton, a security guard who has no life to speak of. Templeton is a rejectee who gets less than no respect from women. To make matters worse, he imagines himself to have the psychological profile of a serial killer and he spends his time vegetating in front of a TV fantasizing about the semi-nude babes he sees on a cable-access channel. Marcus is so chronic, downbeat and introspective, he makes Marty look like an L.A. rave party maven and Hamlet a stand-up comedian.

Marcus is convinced that the only way he'll ever connect with a woman is to pay for one, and thus begins this whole with descent to rock bottom. Marcus becomes obsessed with outcall girls and winds up blowing his life savings on them. Predictably, just when you think he's reached the edge of self-degradation, Marcus finds a way of going over the edge.

Even Hitler Had A Girlfriend calls to mind the films of Ray Dennis Steckler and the weirdness of Gorman Bechard and Carmen Capobianco (Psychos in Love and Intergalactic Gigolo). Replete with a gourmet's sampler of "bimbos" in topless cameos, EHHAG is a film that might have had far more commercial value had it contented itself with T&A schtick, a lot more skin, less self-examination and a "downer" ending. Such as it is, it's an inspired, singularly unique, well-made little movie with narrowly-defined audience appeal. Unfortunately, it's ilk doesn't rate very highly on commercail video store shelves, and that's a shame.
