A few years ago, Prudence (Angie Bates) messed up the chance for her
boyfriend Mike (Michael Slade) and herself to get a degree in
cryptozoology when she chased away the Loch Ness Monster by pleasing
herself with a vibrator before the others could shoot a photo of it. But
now she wants to make up for it, and now that Bigfoot (Daniel Moshe
Johnson) is sighted in a nudist camp, there's nothing that could keep her
from going there, Mike (now her ex) and her roommate, the sex blogger
Veruca (Albina Nahar) in tow.
At the camp, they are welcomed by the
owner Flower (Heather O'Donnell) and her last guest Ginger (Lynzey
Patterson) with open arms, quite literally, and soon they all start to
mingle. Our adventurers though don't catch much of Bigfoot at first, just
a guy in a monkey suit, self-appointed Bigfoot specialist Dirk (Luke
Gallo), who has so far used his equipment, disguises and expertise mainly
to see naked girls and steal their underwear though. Prudence on the other
hand might not be the smartest, but when she reads her poem to Bigfoot in
the open nature on the odd chance that he might hear it, he does hear it,
and it touches his heart.
Dirk is actually out to kill Bigfoot, which
the others don't approve of, so he keeps it a secret but tries to make
Prudence and Mike part of his plan, wanting to use them as backup when he
tries to lure them into his trap wearing yet another monkeysuit. However,
lying low on the lookout, Mike and Prudence rediscover their romance and
make love ... when Bigfoot attacks Mike!

You will probably have guessed it from my
synopsis, or even from the title: Sweet Prudence and the Erotic
Adventure of Bigfoot is not the most intelligent movie. In fact, it's
a pretty silly softcore romp that mainly offers the (very sexy) female
ensemble members plenty of opportunity to get naked - and that's exactly
what makes the film so wonderful, it's a bit like a throwback to more
innocent times (innocent despite the fact that this film is about having
sex with a hairy beast), when sex comedies were carried by stupid
storylines, half-baked humour and a refreshingly naive approach to nudity
What really makes Sweet Prudence and the Erotic Adventure of
Bigfoot work though is that it doesn't look down onto the sex comedies
from yesteryear from a higher vantage point of give them a snotty
so-called post-modern treatment, but it pays loving and unreserved hommage
to them while at the same time avoiding the mistakes these films tended to
make back in the day (like not paying enough attention to comic timing or
to casting the right girls and guys in the right roles or having the sex
scenes go on too long for the story to still click).
And this all
results in one hell of a funny - and sexy - movie. Recommended!
