Peter Locke – The Carhops (1975)
IMDB REVIEW: Funny but forgotten sex comedy, As the name would suggest this movie is pretty silly, but there are some genuinely funny moments. The story revolves around Kitty who, after moving away her overbearing mom, now wants to find a boyfriend–or at least a good-looking guy to hook up with. All her friends from the neighborhood seem eager to share their boyfriends with her, but nothing seems to work out. Mix in a sleazy old geezer, a car chase, and a hilarious trip to the movies to watch “Dr. Demento,” and, well, that’s more or less the framework of the story. Not exactly Oscar material but generally light-hearted fun. Of note is that Wes Craven was one of the film editors. Also co-stars famous “I’m With The Band” author/70’s supergroupie Pamela Des Barres (as “Pamela Miller”).
The end credits are also hilarious, but alas, on the only old depot print I was able to find of it, some of them are cut short. The part I saw more or less apologizes for the quality of the movie and “thanks” the Screen Actors Guild “for making it so difficult” to do an independent film (LOL). It would make a good pick for a company like “Something Weird Video” to release as a DVD.
