Barbarella ★★½

Ah, dear old Barbarella. Jane Fonda wears very little and has a lot of pleasure in this kitsch fest, also featuring the vacant John Philip Law, pop-eyed Milo O'Shea, a malfunctioning David Hemmings and a sexy Anita Pallenburg.

Cringe-inducing scenes, awful model work and muzak of elevator standard surround sex kitten Fonda as she does her best, starting with a floating striptease, moving into furs, getting menaced by metal jawed dolls and nasty budgies, and nearly coming to an end in 'Duran Duran's' pleasure piano.

It's all so bad it's almost good.
