Three lovely waitresses contend with a drunken, slovenly chef and mutinous patrons. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide Squeeze Play The estimable New Jersey-based Troma Films, the same firm that brought you such imperishable classics as Toxic Avenger and Chopper Chicks in Zombietown, was responsible for the raunchy baseball farce Squeeze Play. Rather than offer a litany of its highlights (such as they are), we feel that the tenor of the film is implicit in its bare-bones plotline. In the small town of Springborn (its principal industry is a mattress factory), the local all-male baseball team, The Beavers, celebrates each victory by bedding their wives, sweethearts and casual dates. Tired of this chauvinistic treatment, rebellious Samantha (Jenni Hetrick) organizes an all-girl team, the Beaverettes. She forces a battle of the sexes on the baseball diamond, pitting her buxom teammates against the dirty-playing Beavers. Rather enjoyable in its own sleazy way, Squeeze Play occasionally interrupts its R-rated sniggering to offer a parade of shameless product-placement plugs, and halfway through stops dead in its tracks for an interminable wet T-shirt contest. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The First Turn-On! In this standard story of sex at summer camp, four campers are trapped for awhile in a cave and begin to fabricate supposedly true tales of their past sexual exploits -- giving rise to several flashbacks as their imaginary adventures unfold one by one. Even the nature-studies counselor who is trapped with them gets in on the act and relates a bizarre story when it is her turn to contribute. As time goes by and no help seems to be on the way, the group -- virginal to the core -- begins to wonder if their lives will end in that unwanted state. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide Stuck on You A fallen angel is sent to Earth to win back his heavenly status by bringing a feuding couple together again, but only divine intervention could turn this script around. The angel is Gabriel (Irwin Corey), a judge with a variety of digestive problems who scratches where it itches, when it itches -- and Carol (Virginia Penta) and Bill (Mark Mikulski) are the couple now in court to settle a palimony suit. Flashbacks to the couples' happier days, simulated sex, and nudity fill in the time to the final court decision. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
