Product Description

Yes, Virginia, there is a Doris Wishman, and she really did carve a career out of blunt, bizarre, and bewilderingly bad sexploitation films. Deadly Weapons is one of her most notorious, a revenge tale starring the impossibly endowed Polish-born stripper Chesty Morgan (identified in the credits simply as Zsa Zsa), whose claim to fame is a 73-inch bust that she displays, strokes, and fondles in practically every scene. The nominal plot involves a mob blackmail scheme and a double-crossing gangster who just happens to be Chesty's boyfriend. When the syndicate kills him, she goes undercover to take her revenge on his murderers in a most unique way: She smothers them with her grotesque bosom. There's nothing erotic about this crazy freak show, but it is jaw-droppingly weird. Chesty is no actress--she shuffles, zombielike, through the picture while numbly gazing down as if looking for her mark--and her voice is supplied by a breathy American. As far as that goes, Wishman isn't much of a director. The picture is highlighted by flat performances, clumsy editing, wildly fluctuating color, and a tendency to cut away from dialogue scenes (she often lands on Chesty's mammoth mammaries) to hide the fact that all of the voices are dubbed in later. There's little of the spirit that makes Ed Wood's klutzy little pictures so much fun, but there is something strange and unique about this outrageous, unreal, and otherwise numbingly inept picture. It proved successful enough for Wishman and Morgan to team up for a pseudo-sequel, Double Agent 73. --Sean Axmaker

Product Description

She doesn't have breasts, she has Deadly Weapons! When gangsters kill her boyfriend, the eye-popping, excessively endowed Chesty Morgan seeks revenge with two of the most incredible weapons ever seen on the motion picture screen: her 73-inch breasts! Miss Morgan (billed simply as "Zsa Zsa"), an Israeli stripper whose gigantic, watermelon-sized bust is downright scary, plays Crystal, a "successful advertising executive," who tracks down the men who offed her lover and smothers them by shoving their faces into her copious cleavage! All of which leads up to a bizarre, mind-boggling surprise ending. A completely deranged cult classic from director Doris Wishman, "Deadly Weapons" proved to be such a hit on the grindhouse circuit that another Doris and Chesty collaboration, "Double Agent 73," quickly followed. To see it is to disbelieve it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh so bad, it's funny July 12 2004
By Alan
Format:DVD
A friend of mine gave me this as a gift -- I'm not sure if I should thank him or not. Oh man is this bad. I've only been able to sit through it once, with said friend for moral support. On a funny side note, I used to work with a guy who I wanted to see "Kentucky Fried Movie" (which is an INTENTIONALLY funny film). When I brought that movie in to work for him to borrow, I also brought in this one, as a joke to lend him. Well, he watched THIS but never watched "Kentucky Fried Movie". Go figure.

5.0 out of 5 stars It all depends on which way your tastes run... April 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Yes, by any normal standards this film is badly made, unintentionally hilarious, a great cult classic, good for a laugh and so on. It's all true and you must see it for these reasons.
However, if you love very well endowed women, then you will worship Chesty. The sequence when she strips down to pantyhose and girdle is to my mind the most erotic thing I've ever seen.
Subjectivity is truth - if you love bountiful natural bosoms and sensible underwear this film rules ! If you don't dig these things, don't criticise this viewpoint, stick to your own tastes...the world is big enough for all of us.

Don't get me wrong folks... there's no doubt about it... this film is a bonified stinker... however, its bonified stinkers like this that can lighten up any dull evening at home (or even better, if you're that age, at the dorm) - - just get out a few beers, pop this one in the player... and let the jaws drop and lude conversations flow. - - Though Ed Wood is often described as the worse film director of all time (and John Waters achieved his greatness by trying to be) - - after seeing this film, I'm sure you'll agree that there's Bad as in Ed Wood and Dwain Esper... and downright awful as epitomized by the late great Doris Wishman. - - But don't get me wrong : I'm glad she walked the planet... she tred gound few others had the guts to. Let's face it : while perhaps a John Waters, Russ Meyer or Pedro Almodovar might have had the guts to make a tongue in cheek film about a lady who's mountainous boobies were her deadly weapons, who but Doris Wishman could have done it so... well so *un*campily... This is a typical trademark of Doris Wishman's films... - - While an Ed Wood Film will make you laugh, Waters puke and Russ Meyer run for a cold shower, expect none of this from a Doris Wishman film... no matter how much nudity or violence there is... no flinching, no gasps... and no woodies... yet, despite the absence of this, your jaws will drop at times... and that my friend is art... unintentional perhaps... but art nonetheless... Rumor has it, incidentally, that Chesty has gotten a breast reduction and is now a serious stage actress (...*not*)
