Ginger (1971)

How bad is it? It's a little like porn meets "Charlie's Angels," but not as entertaining.
Should you see it? Hmm. If you're into 1970's trash, maybe.

Cheri Caffaro stars in this, the first and worst of her three "Ginger" films, as a society girl who joins a detective agency. In a small town on the Jersey shore, there's a gang involved in prostitution, drugs and blackmail and she infiltrates. There's a lot of nudity, mostly Caffaro and ugly men and there's a lesbian scene, rape, castration, ridiculous even for 1971 fashions and some cringeworthy racial epithets. The plot meanders, the dialogue is painful, the acting lousy and the plentiful action scenes are more sadistic than entertaining.
