"Wham Bam Thank You Spaceman" is the most retarded thing I've seen in a long while. Its a soft-core "comedy" from the 70s about two space aliens who travel to Earth to procreate with female specimens, adding "humorous" and crude observations that resemble bad Burlesque filler comedians except with a high abundance of offensive four letter words. This film kills more brain cells than any drug out there. Its dumber than "Flesh Gordan". Hell, its even dumber than either "Space-Thing" or "Nudes on the Moon". Its possibly the most mentally delayed thing ever caught on celluloid. As a comedy, its a complete failure. As soft-core porn, its a complete failure, despite the presence of many attractive performers from the day (Dyanne Thorne and especially Sandy Carey in a maid outfit). However, I couldn't tear my eyes away from the screen because I kept wondering how this crap could ever get made.
There's several reasons why I was fascinated throughout, in addition to the absolute stupidity of the project which I'm sure you're sick of hearing about by this point in the review (you'll be more sympathetic once you actually sit through this). The so-called comedy isn't funny in the traditional sense, but is rather amusing in the "Dolemite" sense of you're laughing at it, not with it. Also, the film is extremely politically incorrect, peppered with liberal doses of sexism, awkward descriptions of genitalia, and even a "humorous" rape sequence. I'm shocked they could get away with all this even in the 70s!
There's two versions of "Wham Bam" available. One is from Something Weird Video and is purely soft-core. There's also a hardcore version available, but like most hardcore porn of the day, I found it rather uncomfortable. Hey, I'm not a prude, its just the performers in the day were often gross and unattractive. Stick with the Something Weird version. "Wham Bam Thank You Spaceman" is the kind of ineptitude best viewed after five or so beers.
