Movie Review by ManMachine
March 11th, 2018

A Paedophile's Wishful Fantasy??

Yep. When it comes to the likes of 1977's "Pretty Baby" - This one is definitely "the end to the innocence".

As this film's story so gleefully points out - There's nothing like taking away a 12-year-old girl's virginity in order to get her to grow up. Indeed.

In this white-trash, wh*rehouse soap opera - (director) Louis Malle tries so desperately to turn its gutter-level story into a high-class affair. But - IMO - He fails miserably.

For all of Pretty Baby's sleaze, tackiness, and insensitivity - It actually makes a laughably lame attempt to redeem itself by tacking on an ending that's straight out of Disney's "Cinderella".

And, finally - I seriously wonder just how many paedophiles' wishful fantasies have been instantly fuelled by this film's totally slutty, bottom-of-the-barrel, child-prostitution rubbish.
