Critical Rating: AAA

Australia has given us Mel Gibson, Crocodile Dundee and koala bears. But when was the last time you've seen a sex movie from Down Under? Actually, The ABC's is the Aussie equivalent to American hardcore (although it's soft), and this feature from the land of kangaroos really hops.

Taking the guise of an educational film, this 1977 exploitation movie covers all 26 letters of the alphabet, depicting whatever sexual topic relates to a given letter ("G" is for genitals, "H" is for homosexuals, etc.). The sex is simulated but well handled, but the Australian narrator's stoic tone may cause laughs instead of thrills. Some of the bizarre treats featured are models playing with oversized replicas of genitals (a practice borrowed from Radley Metzger films like The Lickerish Quartet), a girl losing her virginity in a scenic forest tryst, and a guy having his first sexual experience in the front seat of his car at the drive-in.

Forget the educational stuff; this was intended for exploitation purposes (despite the statistics and scientific jargon). It's mildly amusing at times (even campy), but what really makes the film fun is it's time warp factor. It often seems like it was made in 1967, rather than 1977, with characters wearing bell-bottom pants and Muzak-like variations of songs with lyrics like "La la-la la-la la-la la." For a g'time, mate, it's the ABC's.
