It seems like it has been awhile since I’ve reviewed a sexploitation flick but it’s awesome that the first sexploitation film of the new year was a double feature with the classic Debbie Does Dallas and the sequel Debbie Does Dallas Part II. When Vinegar Syndrome announced that they would be releasing the sequel on blu as part of their Peekarama line I knew I would be adding it to my collection. It’s not often that the Peekarama lets me down so it was a day one purchase for me. I decided to spin the first film before diving into this one and I couldn’t wait!
**Spoiler Alert** The film once again follows Debbie (Woods) was unable to try out for the Texas Cowboy’s Cheerleaders because she was too young. She returns home heartbroken but soon finds herself in trouble with the law. On the border between one town and another she is apprehended by two cops who is a little too touchy with her before she is rescued by the town cop who actually has authority in that jurisdiction. He takes her to a local brothel to lay low where she is showed the ins and outs of the business but waiting to bust her is the two shady cops. **Spoiler Alert**
The first Debbie Does Dallas film was a lot of fun and it’s simplicity and characters makes it one that stands out when compared to other films like it. When you mix that with the sports angle you find yourself with a film that will reach a much wider audience than a normal sexploitation flick. Debbie Does Dallas Part II doesn’t really follow the same story as the first film but it’s still a lot of fun.
The acting in this one is very much the same as the first film. Woods was struggling with her new found fame after appearing in the first Debbie Does Dallas film but is still extremely stiff and awkward here. Honestly, I have no idea why she would become such a hot commodity in the adult scene when most of the other female cast members were more attractive and more natural in front of the camera. Anyway, I actually enjoyed the acting outside of Woods and it was the supporting cast that made the film for me.
The story for this one does take a departure from the first film with the only connection being Woods portraying Debbie. Here we have her clumsily being shown the inner workings of a whore house while horny cops try to arrest them. It’s obvious that they cast Woods and cashed in on the Debbie Does Dallas name instead of doing something creative. I get it and respect the hustle but was expecting something a little more akin to the first film than this. It’s fun, however, but not a true sequel.
Finally, the film has several sex scenes. These scenes are just like the first film. They feel rushed, lazy, and not as fun as the other sexploitation flicks previously released by Vin Syn under their Peekarama banner. Overall, Debbie Does Dallas Part II is nothing like the first film but if you like sleazy exploitation and beautiful women then this one is perfect for you. This release from Vin Syn looks absolutely fantastic and must have for collectors. I highly recommend it.
