Plot: What’s it about?

Bunny O’Hara (Christina Hart) is still in high school, but her hormones are out of control and she seeks out more sex than a porn star in heat. She won’t wear underwear to school, she prefers the company of older men, and her father has just about lost his mind over her actions. He is a successful businessman, but even he has no answers for Bunny, who seems to be content sleeping her way through the entire U.S. military forces. Out of options, he enrolls his horny daughter in a finishing school in London, where he hopes Bunny can settle down a little. Instead, she and her fellow wet & ready classmates devise a plan to seduce powerful world leaders, but can even Bunny pull off such a seduction?

This movie seems to have it all, cornball humor, 70s fashion, and tons of naked breasts, but is Games Girls Play the erotic classic it seems to be? In truth, there isn’t much erotic about this movie, despite the rampant female flesh. The ladies are never shy about showing off their assets, but there isn’t much sex. Which is probably good in this case, since the young chicks hook up with a bunch of old fogies, and all. But it is still a nice sight to see so many young, beautiful women take off their clothes, though I do wish the fun factor was higher. The humor is corny as I said, which some people will love and others will detest. There are some laughs to be had however, as well as a few memorable sequences. I don’t think this is one you’ll return to over and again, but for a lark rental, Games Girls Play is worth a spin.

Video: How does it look?

Games Girls Play is presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen. This transfer won’t win any awards, but it looks a little better than I expected. The print is in decent condition, with less debris and damage than you might think, which helps produce a clean overall visual presence. This isn’t as polished as more recent, better funded productions, but sharpness is passable and I wouldn’t call the transfer soft by any means. No real concerns as far as colors or contrast either, a solid looking visual effort.

Audio: How does it sound?

The 2.0 stereo soundtrack is basic, but effective. The audio has a thin presence, but that is expected in this case. The hilarious musical score sounds fine, as do all the various moans and squeals. The dialogue is clear enough also, though a touch tinny or harsh here and there. So not memorable, but adequate.

Supplements: What are the extras?

This disc includes an interview with star Christina Hart, some television spots, and the film’s theatrical trailer.
