ROBYN HILTON BOWS OUT OF CINEMA AFTER 'MALIBU EXPRESS'

Hilton serves Hinton in Andy Sidaris's MALIBU EXPRESS Year: 1985

Two previous reviews featuring Mel Brooks's gun-chewing BLAZING SADDLES Governor's bimbo-redhead... as a guest on STARSKY & HUTCH and the campy Ron Ely picture DOC SAVAGE... has gone through the proverbial roof and today, as our usual 700 daily hits went to 4,000 (for unknown reasons), we'll say goodbye to Robyn Hilton... in a cinematic sense: this was her last picture, a Noir detective spoof with tons of Playboy Playmates, vanilla mustached leading man Darby Hinton, and the kind of light hump wannabe-porn that didn't quite need a curtain in the video rental store, and MALIBU EXPRESS, even for a bad movie, is downright awful, lacking the homage-driven tongue-in-cheek humor, interesting locations, and sporadic gunplay usually given to Bogart-like throwbacks: comedy or otherwise. Besides Hilton's five scenes as the mischievous maid, Marion... Maid Marion... Sybil Danning, in her usual comfortable b-movie groove, provides the only decent performance despite the fact there's no rhyme or rhythm here at all. C'mon, bad cult films are supposed to be fun. But this EXPRESS was made about ten years too late — not the sound of a genuine party, but someone playing their music too loud.
