Plot: What’s it about?
Chastity Knott (Kitten Natividad) owns her own bar and has a good life, but one visit to her doctor’s office spins her life out of control. She is informed by Dr. De La Croix (Raven De La Croix) that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer and since her breasts are monumentally large, that’s a whole lot of cancer to treat. This shatters Chastity’s life and with no other choice, she asks if there are any potential cures, even ones outside of the normal medical field. Dr. De La Croix tells her that she can’t make any promises, but that a certain plant down in South America has been rumored to eliminate whatever ailments the person has. So with just that small glimmer of hope, Chastity ventures to South America and with some help from a well endowed local girl, she finds the plant and discovers you don’t eat it, you simply suck and lick it. As the plant happens to be shaped like a man’s tool, Chastity has plenty of experience and uses her mouth like a professional, all the while hoping it does indeed have some healing properties. When she returns, her tests come back negative and not only is the cancer gone, but she now has superhuman strength, an unexpected side effect she plans to put to good use. Now she intends to use her newfound powers to battle a corrupt bar owner and his band of lethal strippers…
I know what you’re thinking, that this is some kind of flesh feast that simply displays women’s naked bodies in an exploitative fashion. While that is what I expected, and wanted from this release, as hard as it is to believe, The Double-D Avenger showcases no nudity whatsoever. You will see a number of women with huge melons shake their powderpuffs, but the tops remain in place and that’s bad news. I like the kind of cheese laden comedies that The Double-D Avenger tries to emulate, but those movies have naked women, hot ones even. But here, we’re treated to clothed women instead and in the case of the main stars, the women are over the hill starlets from the heyday of Russ Meyer’s career. In other words, not only do the women not take their clothes off, but the ladies are middle aged to boot. A few younger chicks show up, but they also stay clothed and make brief appearances. So without revealing the giant breasts flaunted throughout the movie, The Double-D Avenger has to be carried by the comedic content, which simply isn’t good enough or consistent enough. As you can imagine, the humor is filled with sexual barbs and innuendoes, but aside from a few scenes, it fails to deliver more than mediocre laughs. But while the film is rather bland in most respects, if you’re hung up on huge boobs on older women, then The Double-D Avenger should provide a decent diversion for a while.
Video: How does it look?
The Double-D Avenger is presented in a full frame transfer, as intended. As the case states, this movie was filmed in “digital Boobyvision,” which means it looks like an independent film shot on digital video, which isn’t bad at all. The image is very clean and sharp, thanks to the methods used to capture it, of course. I saw no evidence of compression flaws either, as no breakup or pixillation was ever present. The colors are bold and free from error, while the flesh tones are natural throughout, even when multiple massive mammaries are on screen. No faults to be cast on the contrast, with black levels looking smooth and detail solid at all times. This looks good, as the movie was shot on digital video and then ported in a solid treatment here.
Audio: How does it sound?
The audio here is not memorable by any means, but it sounds solid and handles the minimal needs of the material. As you should expect, this might be a movie about a superwoman with enormous jugs, but in terms of audio presence, the super is more like snoozer. That’s no reason to complain however, as the material doesn’t demand dynamic audio and as such, this soundtrack simply does what it needs to. The dialogue is crystal clear, the music is fine, and the sound effects are as powerful as can be expected. Not much else you could want here, as the material is as well presented as possible.
Supplements: What are the extras?
I was surprised to find an audio commentary track here, but director William Winckler, cinematographer Raoul J. Germain, Jr., and star Kitten Natividad have sat down and recorded their thoughts on this picture. The session is a little too serious for my taste on this kind of movie, as Winckler tries too hard to be hip, but the other two contribute some nice insights. In any event, it is a welcome inclusion and should be spun, if you liked the movie itself. This disc also includes some behind the scenes photos, as well as the film’s promotional trailer.
