      Kevin Carr Fat Guys at the Movies The things you'd expect to come out in a movie like this have a song based on them. The production numbers are hilarious... It was such a bizarre time in the 70s. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 12, 2022 Full Review Carey-Ann Pawsey Orca Sound Just as cheesy as you would expect based on the title. And when I say cheesy I mean the whole block of cheese. Hold your nose and dive in! Rated: 3/5 Mar 10, 2022 Full Review Frank J. Avella Edge Media Network And, of course, most of the women are exploited, except for Cindy Williams (on the Laverne and Shirley precipice), who manages to deliver a smart, funny and near-feminist performance...Future Soap star Diana Canova steals her moments... Rated: B- Mar 7, 2022 Full Review James Wegg JWR Pussies galore! Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 4, 2022 Full Review Sean Burns North Shore Movies Its a dirty movie but not a smutty one, sunny and ebullient about sex in a manner that would quickly vanish from Hollywood entertainments. Mar 4, 2022 Full Review Brittany Witherspoon Film Threat Filled with a quick wit and erotic humor, The First Nudie Musical works for all the reasons it shouldn’t. Rated: 8/10 Feb 24, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Absolutely hilarious! Campy as hell. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member This cult film favorite follows along the lines of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (it was released one year after) but doesn't have the catchy score or quality acting that the latter film has. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member How could this be a cult classic? At the brink of bankruptcy, the production company must produce a pornographic musical to save the day. Filled with outrageous numbers and cheeky nudity. The First Nudie Musical is a flimsy comedy even laugh tracks won't save it. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member If Mel Brooks and Woody Allen had sex and produced an offspring he'd be Bruce Kimmel. He's like a poor man's combo of Brooks and Allen except more ballsier. Literally. He's only made three feature films in his lifetime (This film, Naked Space and Prime Suspect) the rest were either made for tv movies. Before that he was an actor starring in a few episodes of Happy Days & The Partridge Family. He also co-wrote the late 90s sci/fi flick "The Faculty" with Robert Rodriguez as the director. Nowadays he makes a web series called Outside the Box. He's even done a few stage plays like Deceit and The Brain from Planet X. If anything his ideas are more suited for the stage not the screen. His first film is a perfect example of that, but I can understand his intentions. A Nudie musical probably would never happen unless it's in a movie of course. Harry Schechter is stuck with having to make porno movies due to his dying studio about to slip into bankruptcy. The big wigs are forcing him to do it and since he has no choice he comes up with an idea: The First Nudie Musical. Much of the film is devised of heavy sexual puns and since it was made in the 70s there is a lot of un-PC humor which I admired greatly. Carefree 70s! Yay! :D You can obviously see where Trey Parker & Matt Stone came up with the idea for "Orgazmo". So expect a lot of bush. I mean literally a lot of it. Also bad jokes which were redeeming enough to still be funny anyways considering the lighthearted nature of the film. Dancing dildos that look more like vibrators, Orgasms turned into songs, Musical numbers full of tits & bush! Bush I tell you! And Cindy Williams with her cuteness of course. I could hear her say stunt cock all day long. :) Overall, this poor man's "The Producers" is a masterpiece of vulgar, degenerate cinema. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member So much fun and so clever. Really written well by Bruce Kimmel and also directed, and also played the director John Smithee in the film. He's become a friend, or really an acquaintance of mine these past few years. Love the silly music in this and we see a very young Cindy Williams in this. Also, Diana Canova - what ever happened to her? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member "The First Nudie Musical" es una comedia acerca de un productor de peliculas porno que decide hacer el primer musical para el genero. Bruce Kimmel es fenomenal como el inocente director sobrino de uno de los inversionistas y Cindy Williams (mucho antes de "Laverne & Shirley") es solo carisma como la secretaria del productor. Las canciones "Orgasm", "Butch, Lesbian, Dyke" y "Dancing Dildos" son de lo mejor. p.d. Atencion a la breve aparicion de Ron Howard. p.d.2. Con tantos desnudos frontales, esta cinta hoy en dia no se hubiera podido estrenar! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
