Storyline

This kicks off with the murder of one Adolf Schwartz (who bears a striking resemblance to another famous Adolf) by placing a ravenous piranha fish in his bathtub. Who did it? No-one knows or cares, as they're too busy being distracted by busty Margo Winchester, who hitch-hikes into# town and gets involved with all the local men. It all ends with a series of complicated plot twists that reveal that just about everyone is really someone else. And if it gets too confusing, Russ Meyer helpfully arranges for a one- woman nude Greek chorus to pop up at intervals to explain what's going on.

Alternate Versions

When submitted for a rating from the BBFC in 1980, the movie was cut for an "X" rating. When submitted for a rating in 1998 by Allied Troma the movie (presumably the uncut version) had 1m 39s cut in order to receive an "18" rating. The video cuts apply to a rape scene on a river bank and the latter bar rape scene. The 1999 video from Polygram also features these cuts. As of 2005, all previous cuts were waived and the Arrow Film video/DVD is uncut. See more »

very funny !
4 July 2004 | by bertigSee all my reviews

I just watched Russ Meyer's up yesterday and i thought it was really funny. I had seen supervixens which is not as good and beneath the valley of the dolls, which i thought was corny. But up has beautiful photography and i like this whole style, some scenes are really funny and violent and i was surprised to see the actresses act OK. I have heard Russ Meyer used a lot of strippers and go-go girls from that time and with big natural breasts, this is before silicon. And i thought Kitten was very funny, talking between scenes and doing these ridiculous go-go steps and screaming like she's coming. Did you know that Kitten was Russ's wife in the 70's....

Up is just brilliantly entertaining......up ..up and away
