The Princess and the Call Girl

"Weak"

The Princess and the Call Girl Review


Radley Metzger's final film gives up most pretense of being artistic, and that's unfortunate. Made for the Playboy Channel, this is low-budget softcore without much to redeem it.

Inspired (blatantly) from The Prince and the Pauper, Carol Levy stars in two roles as a virginal socialite and her lookalike pal, a high-priced call girl. For whatever reason, they decide to switch places for a weekend -- the virgin jets to Europe for a series of trysts, while the call girl stays home on the eve of her pal's wedding to a nebbish loser. Throw in an amorous maid who's constantly losing her clothes and I guess you've got a movie.

The Princess and the Call Girl's only real redemption comes in its unintended comedy. Best exchange (and it's dead serious):

He: "I saw this movie this morning... it was horrible and dirty."She: "I don't have HBO."

That's entertainment, people.

Available as part of the Radley Metzger Collection #3 box set with Carmen, Baby and The Lickerish Quartet.
