Producer Damon Christian, who specialized in wacky sex comedies, rashly titled this comic book takeoff Superwoman. Threatened with copyright infringement, he had to change the title after the film was in the can, plus bleep the name from the soundtrack and fuzz-blur the ?S? logo on the heroine's uniform.
It's a truly tacky production, with cheesy sets and rudimentary effects, but it's fun, a reminder that even Golden Age B-movies could be entertaining. There are amusing lines, good tongue in cheek performances from an A-list West Coast cast and fairly hot sex.
Delectable Deseree Cousteau plays the newspaper reporter who turns into world-saver, with Mike Horner as boyfriend Clark Click. But the show belongs to Jesie St. James, who's both funny and hot as arch-villainess Kreeta Borgia, who descends from outer space with a fiendish plan to conquer the universe.
Retailing: A real curiosity that's fun in spite of itself.
