Review
by Kozo:
     Loletta Lee stars in another film from her Category III run. Girls Unbutton was brought to you by Taylor Wong, the director of Triads: The Inside Story. Apparently, the title of director is arbitrarily given in Hong Kong. Lee plays Jenny, a love-crazy chick who is not above chicanery to satisfy her string of uninteresting boyfriends. She thinks she finds something in gang boss Tsui Kam-Kong (What? Tsui Kam-Kong in a Category III film?), but the guy dies in a fight after some alleyway action with Jenny. She ends up meeting nice guy Leung Si-Ho, but their eventual reunion is subject to forty-plus minutes of unfunny comic devices designed to keep them apart. And, various friends of Jenny appear to disrobe and provide all the necessary softcore sex this flick needs.
     Not surprisingly, this film is crap, but understandably so. To even judge this film based on its non-salacious content would be incredibly silly. It's just a series of boring and uninteresting jokes designed to fill space between the omnipresent raunchy stuff. All you can do is wait around for the boring stuff to end and more nudity to arrive; actual evaluation is useless. So, to steal from Saturday Night Live's Kevin Nealon: You'll be uninterested...then you'll be interested...then you'll be uninterested...then you'll be interested again. Repeat until ninety minutes elapses. Then throw away the movie and never watch it again. (Kozo 1996)
