ROBYN HILTON BOWS OUT OF CINEMA AFTER 'MALIBU EXPRESS'

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

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.
