Bolero (1984)

Virginal heiress Ayre “Mac” McGillvary (Bo Derek) graduates from a prestigious boarding school and goes to the Sahara desert and Spain in search of pure sexual ecstasy and ends up making love with a sheikh and a bullfighter.

Set in the 1920s for no apparent reason, director John Derek’s anti-erotic valentine to his wife is packed with hilariously awful encounters that are further undermined by insipid dialogue.

See Bo ride a horse naked. See Bo writhe passionately in front of a red neon sign spelling out the film’s title. See Bo covered in honey and licked clean in slow motion.

See how badly a film goes wrong when a besotted husband thinks the world is ready for a Bo-peep tribute to a wife who may have a great body but is one lousy actress . . .

Tasteless, tortuous and terrifically trashy. One of the funniest bad movies ever made.
