More Than His Nose Grows
22 January 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Pinocchio (1971)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Gepetta (Monica Gayle) is a sweet toy making but if also very lonely. So lonely that she's actually still a virgin. One day she makes a wooden boy but knows since he's made of wood there can't ever be anything between them. However, the Fairy Godmother (Dyanne Thorne) brings Pinocchio (Alex Roman) to life but he must stay out of trouble, which isn't easy.

The tag-line for this film is quite good as it points out that it's not just Pinocchio's nose that grows. I'm sure you get it. This film, also known as THE EROTIC ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO, really isn't anything special and in fact for an "erotic" film it's rather boring, tame and not all that erotic. As I go through more of these fairy tale "adult" titles it's becoming quite clear that CINDERALLA (1977) was the best of them.

This film here is just poorly made and doesn't feature a bit of energy or excitement. The direction really doesn't do much in regards to making the film entertaining as the sex scenes are all rather boring and there's not too much humor that actually works. The highlights in regards to the humor is how the magic wand from the Fairy Godmother keeps accidentally taking all of her clothes off. Who doesn't want to see a nude Thorne? She's certainly the highlight of the picture as Roman is quite bland in the title role.
