The prince (Don Sparks) has just turned 21, but he's got a problem: He
can't get it up, and he has only a few days left to father a child,
otherwise he's to lose his kingdom. Actually, there is one girl, Sleeping
Beauty (Linnea Quigley) who could cure him from his condition - but
she's somewhere far away in Fairy Tale Land
So the prince travels to
Fairy Tale Land ... but news travels faster, and soon pimp Sirus (Sy
Richardson) and Madame Gussie Gander (Brenda Fogarty) learn about the
prince, and they are adamant to help him out - for a price. So Sirus lures
the Prince to Gussie's shoe, which is also her whorehouse, and they try to
mate him with Snow White (Annie Gaybis), try to get him started with some
S & M, even try voodoo on him ... but nothing works.
figures, her star attraction could do the trick, a real virgin - but thing
is, Old King Cole (Bob Leslie) and the Frog Prince (Lee Arries) want to
get their hands (and more) on the virgin as well ... which of course leads
to a bit of changing around, until the Prince discovers she's actually
Sleeping Beauty, wakes her up with a kiss, and shags her pretty much on
Pretty much your typical 1970's softcore sex comedy:
The story is simply a hanger for some nudity, the direction is functional
at best, and the whole thins is not half as funny as it tries to be - yet
somehow the film is charming just because of that. Nevertheless, the charm
wears off after a while, and at a mere 75+ minutes, it already seems to
run a tad too long.
Oh, and did I mention the film's also a musical, and
the music, a mix of unembarassing disco and funk, is rather ok actually
(without being exceptional though).
