Sumo Vixens (2001) from Tuna

If you can't turn this film and a six-pack into a party, you have had your sense of fun surgically removed.  Right off the bat here, we are dealing with topless female Sumo wrestlers. Thin ones. I would like to think heaven was a little like this. Add a plot, overacting, and make the star Kei Mizutani (Weather Woman), and you have the Seven Samurai of Topless Skinny Female Sumo Wrestler films. 


At least 10 women show breasts and buns nearly in every scene, including Kei Mizautani. 

no DVD info from Amazon.

 The daughter of a famous historical female Sumo Wrestler wants to revive a female Sumo school to save her mother's property from Yakuza loan sharks.  She enlists the aid of a former Sumo/Jailbird/Yakuza to help her gather and train a team. The Yakuza brings in some ringers, and the bout is for ownership of the dojo.

The Critics Vote

The People Vote ...

  • not listed at IMDb
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a C+, my  highest soft-core score. Lots of breasts, unique concept, and a ton of bad  movie gestalt.
