      Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A lame-brained comedy that might fly with viewers who are drawn to low-brow humor like flies to manure. Rated: C- May 16, 2012 Full Review Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy Pretty darn stupid, which is not at all an impediment to it being a terrific lot of fun.

      Dave S The ingenious but evil Dr. Goldfoot (Vincent Price) is in the business of creating female robots clad in bikinis to seduce and steal from the world's wealthiest and most powerful men, his only foil being an inept government agent (Frankie Avalon) who has stumbled across the devious plan. American International Pictures created some truly horrible low-budget garbage over its three-decade lifespan, but few come close to being as bad as Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. Ostensibly a comedy, the slapstick is as low-brow as you could imagine and the one-liners repeatedly fall flat. Even for a comedy, the plot is ridiculous. Other than Price making some sort of effort to salvage something from this mess, this movie offers nothing, other than the opportunity for a sequel. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Audience Member Samuel Z. Arkoff and American International Pictures (AIP) strike again! What the Beach Party films were to surfing movies, "Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine" is to spy pictures. "Beach Party" veteran Frankie Avalon along with TV's Dobie Gillis, Dwayne Hickman, play Craig Gamble and Todd Armstrong (earlier this year Avalon played Todd Armstrong and Hickman played Craig Gamble in AIP's ski themed "Beach Party" knock-off film, "Ski Party"). Avalon is a swinging' 60s spy who partners with millionaire Hickman to stop the mad scientist Dr. Goldfoot, Vincent Price, in his plot to use build bikini-clad robots to seduce influential men around the globe. Just like the Beach Party films, this one is ridiculous and complete fluff, but at the same time the film's unpretentiousness and likable cast are enough to endear audiences. Although the spy craft is not as slick as the campy Flint movies and the cast is not as good as the Beach Party films (it does include cameos by Beach veterans Annette Funicello, Harvey Lembeck, and Fabian), it's still enjoyable fluff if your'e in the right mood. AIP music veteran Les Baxter provided the score, but interestingly AIP cut out all of the musical numbers that were originally planned for the film. The film was a flop in the US, but was a huge hit in Italy, so a sequel was film in Italy, with Prince as the only returning cast member, and was directed by Italian maestro genre filmmaker Mario Bava ("Black Sunday," "Diabolic" "Blood and Black Lace," "Kill, Baby... Kill!" etc.), in what is one of his weaker films, but superior to this original. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review delysid d Stupid and Wacky but not wacky enough Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/08/19 Full Review Audience Member It's a struggle to come up with more than "Fuck this movie." If there's a more nonsensical, less funny movie, I can't think of it. Not even Vincent Price is an asset here. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Robot Females and Stupid Males--So-so comedy with Vincent Price spoofing his many horror roles!! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Catchy song. I remember little else outside of Vincent Price.
