      uncle p Story/Screenplay: (2.5/5) The screenplay seems hopelessly flawed until the realization comes that the film isn't taking itself seriously, stumbling into the "so bad it's good" category. The story never actually becomes good, but it's never truly bad, either. Duration/Tempo: (3/5) At 1 hour and 45 minutes, it's an average length movie that felt about the same. Cast & Crew: (2/5) Darby Hinton was the only actor able to survive the screenplay, delivering a decent performance. However, the direction and editing were very poor. I've seen very low production budget films do better. Summary: (3/5) The story was mediocre, the cast failed, and the film could have been shorter. However, having dashed expectations early on, the film actually became somewhat entertaining as it progressed. In the end, it's a tad closer to bad than good: a borderline thumbs down. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Writer/director/producer Andy Sidaris kicks off his L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies (or Triple-B as he called it, Bullets, Bombs, and Babes) series of 12 films. Crass does not begin to describe this 80s video store staple. Mustachioed P.I. Cody Abilene investigates Russians spying on a high tech computer company. As with most John le Carré novels, this leads to equal parts shoot outs, hot shower scenes, and sweaty lovemaking. Featuring numerous Playboy playmates and cult favorite Sybil Danning ("Chained Heat" "Reform School Girls" "Young Lady Chatterley II"), calling this film trashy doesn't even begin to describe it, but if you're in the mood for just about the most crassly 80s movie imaginable, you might enjoy "Malibu Express," which I most certainly did, even if I objectively knew it was complete garbage. Essential viewing for fans of so-bad-it's-good cinema! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Not nearly as fun as the follow up to this, but some of the absurdity can be a bit funny... Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/14/19 Full Review Audience Member Sybil Danning stars in this Andy Sidaris film about racing, a murder mystery, Russian espionage, and naked ladies. There's also flamoyant gays and trannys. I think there was a storyline; unsure. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member http://letterboxd.com/zbender/film/malibu-express/ Girls, Guns, and G-Strings. Bullets, Bombs, and Babes. Whatever the name you'll know you're getting Andy Sidaris. And in Malibu Express our vehicle in which to experience the utter majesty of the holy trinity of the three is Cody Abilene. All aboard the Malibu Express. If I had to bring forth an antithesis to abolish the 2nd amendment Cody's the guy. He may not shoot worth a shit, but he can sure be a hit with the ladies. Seriously, I would not want to play a drinking game if I drank for every pair Cody's had a gaze on. I'd die. I feel horrible for any asexual watching this. No enjoyment whatsoever. The man practically begs mercy from all the sex. Sporting jeans, a cowboy hat, a sweet mustache, and a revolver, Cody has to discover whose been stealing computers or computer data or something like that. Quite honestly in a series of films where the title given to the film's is Girls, Guns, and G-Strings, when do you care about the story? I was almost completely oblivious to the fact he was a detective until he solves the case at the end. All you need to know about the villains: Russians bad. Cody? Bad ass motherfucker. It works. His body is a lethal weapon. His Delorean is his pride and joy. He follows the beat of some smooth country. Malibu Express acts as a fun, nonsensical, treat. 80's B action film to the max. I paid 5 bucks for hopefully 11 more of these. So far definitely worth it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Not nearly as good as Hard Ticket To Hawaii, but it has some fun parts, and contains one of my favorite lines in film history. It's just way too all over the place though. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
