THE NEW TALK DIRTY TO ME PART III (1989)
Originally released in 1984 without the "new" part of the title and, unfortunately for the filmmakers, starring a 16 year old Traci Lords this 1980's porn rip-off of the Tom Hanks Hollywood hit SPLASH was re-shot with all of her scenes really sloppily edited out and replaced with a barely acting Lisa DeLeeuw that you can hear getting yelled directions by the director. The new scenes seem to have been cheaply shot on video so there's a jarring difference when we cut from that to the older film stock. Now I do recall seeing the original version of this back when I was young man and avid viewer of the Playboy Channel so I can remember it obviously being a lot better in its original form. The movie is filled with lame jokes and your typically big haired blond 80's gals including Ginger and Amber Lynn. You also get John Leslie as the main ladies man, who also appears in the re-shot stuff looking a bit older plus Jamie Gillis as his buddy. I think the message of the movie is that all women are secretly mermaids?
