Review by James Klein

From the director of Jungle Blue comes one of the longest adult films I have ever seen. In fact, this epic skin flick even has an intermission! This was a chore to watch as one can only watch so many fuck scenes and blowjobs for so long.

Marilyn and the Senator stars William Margold (Dracula Sucks and Debbie Does the Devil in Dallas) as the bumbling, silly Senator who loves a good shit in the morning as well s the occasional fling now and again. One day the lovely Marilyn (Nina Fause from Jungle Blue) enters his office and makes him an offer: she wants him to make love to her and give her a baby which she will raise on her own. The senator agrees after she offers him $10,000 but without a blowjob he cannot get aroused. Marilyn doesn’t know how to give head and ends up getting tips from various women on how to please the good Senator.

Meanwhile, the Senator’s wife (Heather Leigh from Black Shampoo) knows her husband is up to no good so with the help of the senator’s aid Queep (Bill Kaye) they install cameras all around the offices to spy on the Senator getting some lovin’. As the plot thickens (as well as Margold, who is hung like a horse) there is more to this mysterious Marilyn than just a semi-looney rich woman who wants him to give her a baby.

Marilyn and the Senator is a comedic adult film that does have a few laughs (anything with under-cranked camerawork is always funny) within the 125 minute running time. But that’s just it; it’s soooooo long! The movie could all be told within 60 minutes. Not to mention the sex scenes are rather boring and plain.  Also, the film is very dialog heavy which can never be a good thing when the movie is performed by amature performers. While Margold is interesting and it’s always nice to see cult bimbo Liz Reney pop up in a small role as a madame, the rest of the cast can’t act to save their lives. Nina Fause, who is downright awful, is obviously reading cue cards.

I will give the film points for the abrupt, hilarious WTF ending(s) as the movie just gets more and more nuts as it tries to end. Too bad the film wasn’t shorter and kept up with the lunacy that makes these adult films worth watching.

By now, one expects to see Vinegar Syndrome put out a stellar looking disc and this is no exception. The picture looks so good, I bet the film never looked this good even in it’s debut run. There is very little print damage at all. The picture is also enhanced by being presented in its original aspect ratio of 1:85:1.

But even better is the audio commentary by William Margold and a few film critics who try and moderate the commentary. Margold, who is now in his 70’s, is a guy who throws it all on the table and never stops talking. His train of thought goes from one subject to the next within the same sentence. Margold talks about Tobalina (“nice guy but retarded”) Fause (“couldn’t count to two but had great hands”) the production (he wrote and directed most of his own scenes) being arrested for making this film, how much he misses being skinny, and of course his own penis (“look at that! Happy cock!”). What may have made me laugh the most was hearing the stifled laughs from the moderators who can’t help but crack up over the brash adult star. This may be one of the funniest commentaries I have ever heard which makes this disc a must listen for anyone.

Rounding out the special features is the trailer which clocks in at over six minutes! Just like the film itself, it is too long.
