I haven't seen this since it came out, and I was only 14 or so, but I remember parts of it that were good. And i also remember that some parts were a bit boring and silly. I need to see it again......my appreciation for soft-core porn (esp. from early to mid-70's) has become more profound now that it doesn't really exist anymore. Hard-core porn (which isn't even an art format) destroyed this genre of cinema :-(
Kind of my platonic ideal for an erotic film, smart, silly and kinda arousing. Suggests that growing up and sexual maturity is learning to trust yourself rather than what the world tells you, so I loved it.

A mature life is one lived for oneself, even if one's desires are in alignment with social norms. An audacious adaptation, namely in how its lax interpersonal dynamics play out in an antithetical nature to nearly every other take on the narrative and how it combines elements from both novels with inventions of its own design. Apes the brands of Fosse and Godard in delightful fashion, but its formal daring ends there.
Few porn parody musicals is remotely watchable, but this one is kind-of cute even if it contains a lot of hard-core scenes as Lewis Carroll's story easily work as an adult coming-of-age story about sex anyhow. Kristine DeBell look fantastic and innocent here even if she do both lesbian, masturbation or blowjob scenes. Costume and makeup is terrible though and the music is more annoying than catching. Best porn seen.
Bud Townsend will make a profit business in destroying / reinventing popular modern myths (his version of Flash Gordon is a fine exemple). This is a basic porn movie with the add of psychedelic lights, baroque and inventive grosteque moments. At best it reminds me the kitsch quality of a few movies by Ken Russel, also Cinderella by pataki comes very close to this kinky Alice.
Saw the R-rated version. Some of it was funny, a few good songs, and actually a good performance by Kristine DeBell as Alice. That said, the film is also a mess. Looked horrid and the songs that didn't work were dreadful to sit through. If you can look past the bad and you're watching it with friends MST3K style then it could be okay, otherwise, eww.
