    Originally titled Lady Killers, this rancid, underlit B-movie aspires to little more than cheap laughs eked out of the discomfort and queasiness Owen and Friedle feel over sexually servicing assertive, kinky old women.

    For the most part, The Gold Diggers is not even chuckle-producing. At best, it might warm a cockle or two or provoke a bit of a smile.

    It all makes Nat Lamp's recent "Van Wilder" look like an instant classic.

    Put it this way: National Lampoon's Gold Diggers makes "The Anna Nicole Show" look sophisticated.

    A one-gag movie and that one gag isn't funny. Taylor and Lasser are reduced to playing sex-starved Norma Desmonds, and while Friedle and Owen are certainly game, their plan is a waste of everyone's time, especially the audience's.

    Cheap-looking, broad and ultimately unnecessary comedy.

    A May-September sex farce so prodigiously unintriguing that audiences could be forgiven for stampeding from theaters to strangle its writer-director, Gary Preisler, in his sleep.
  9. Less offensive than embarrassing, at least for the chagrined performers.

    So stupefyingly hideous that after watching it, you'll need to bathe in 10 gallons of disinfectant, get a full-body scrub and shampoo with vinegar to remove the scummy residue that remains.

    Nothing's quite so painful as failed comedy, and this atrocity is equivalent to a compound fracture.
  12. 0
    Certainly the most painfully unfunny of the countless bad movies that have licensed the name of the long-defunct humor magazine.

    A movie so filled with contemptible, ugly and unfunny characters that it is physically difficult to watch.

    This was one of the top worst movies ever made. I can't believe this even made it to the theaters. It was not funny, had no point or plot. ItsThis was one of the top worst movies ever made. I can't believe this even made it to the theaters. It was not funny, had no point or plot. Its a waste of time, and not just mine - who ever thought of going through with producing this.
