Your review sums up my feelings of The Last American Virgin. It wasn't horrible but the ending is what sticks in your mind. A co-worker from my videostore days talked this film up quite a bit but managed not to let the end slip. It remains the one part of the film that sticks out in my mind.

To be honest I'm shocked

I saw this film a few years ago and thought it was horribly dated and purile. However, you could see it as a grandfather of some of the comedies of today from the Judd Apatow camp, maybe. I gave it 1 star.

I then watched a few sequences again over the past few days and wondering why it was being reviewed charitably gave it 1.5 stars which I though was being generous.

Maybe I'm getting old!

Shocked of California :-)

I get EVERY one of these right.


By the way, any hope on 'Howard The Duck' for 86'? All these 80's reviews are positive, and they're starting to make the decade appear... respectable :?

awesome review - agree with everything you said. literally. i knew you wouldnt give it a bad one, cuz why would you choose to view it again if you hated it? :)
only thing i can think of, i didn't see the word, "cheesy". but maybe when it came out, it was ok.i wouldn't know.

I'm starting to think that i need to uprate the 80's picks by 0.5 to 1 star

I still cannot get over this 2.5 star review - oh well :-)

P.S. - I'm sure James knew before, but who here called Last American Virgin being a remake of Eskimo Limon, as stated in the review?


I did me proud :lol:

Before voting on the competition, I checked about Last American Virgin on imdb and was surprised to see it was a remake of Eskimo Limon. This Israeli film was very popular in Germany in the 80ies (it was called Popsicle, though) as well as the numerous sequels. I think there were about 5 Popsicle films, none of them good.

I have to say I agree with the review. While not a bad movie, it's only notable in the long run for its ending.
