Response to Peary’s Review:
As Peary notes, this adult film’s alliterative title — “the reason for its great success” — is “the most original thing about it”. The “acting is terrible,” the sex is “run-of-the-mill, repetitive, and mechanical,” and everyone comes across as downright dumb — yet somehow, it still became one of the top five highest-grossing adult films in history. Go figure. A recent documentary about the film — Debbie Does Dallas Uncovered (2005) — is nearly as boring and exploitative as the original; don’t bother renting it.

Redeeming Qualities and Moments:

  • None, other than the clever title

Must See?
Yes, simply for its status in adult film history.
