Critical Rating: AAA
No sooner than you can say “the doctor is in”, we are introduced to a nut house where the lunatics have (figuratively) taken over the asylum. F.J. Lincoln plays Dr. Bozo, and Selena Steele his nurse, in this madcap comedy that could have been called “One Blew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”.
Instead of Jack Nicholson, the protagonist is stunning Raquel, who learns firsthand of the insane practices that the staff used to cure their patients. Schlock therapy is the rule of the day, as the co-ed patients mix it up in various ways. Dough and Wallice are the orderlies whose ongoing argument concerning whose day it is to perform “therapy” provides some funny moments.
Sexually, Raquel is outstanding, but the video underutilizes her lead. If the story had a clever ending for her character instead of an arbitrary conclusion, it would have been excellent. Still highly marketable.
