Andy Sidaris' Exploitation Films Beginning in the Mid-80s:

Ex-sports producer and director/writer Andy Sidaris' formulaic, straight-to-video film releases (twelve in total) began in 1985 and progressed through 1998. The cheesy B-films were called Triple B features (with Bullets, Bombs & Babes), including Malibu Express (1985), Hard Ticket to Hawaii (1987), Picasso Trigger (1988), Savage Beach (1989), and L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies: Return to Savage Beach (1998). They had thinner plots, more voyeuristic nudity and giant, silicone surgically-enhanced centerfolds as the films were unveiled.

Malibu Express (1985)

Andy Sidaris' first sleazy, exploitative, trashy T&A extravaganza was the best of all his films. It was taglined:

Packing Heat from Texas to Malibu Beach.

The James Bond spoof contained all the requisite elements: action, comedy and gratuitous nudity (with lots of former Playboy and Penthouse models and soap opera stars). The film was showcased with numerous breast appearances by four half-naked Playboy Playmate centerfolds:

  • Faye - Kimberly McArthur (Playboy Playmate January 1982)
  • Liza Chamberlain - Lorraine Michaels (Playboy Playmate April 1981)
  • June Khnockers - Lynda Weismeier (Playboy Playmate July 1982)
  • May - Barbara Edwards (Playboy Playmate September 1983)

This one featured good ol' boy, mustached, Chuck Norris-lookalike private detective Cody Abilene (Darby Hinton) in a plot about illegal sales of computers to Communist countries. Cody's yacht was named Malibu Express which was moored at the Santa Barbara Marina in California - the film's title. Lori Sutton also starred as lusty police detective Beverly McAfee.

Sampled dialogue: "I understand you're a private investigator -- and we want to know if you'll investigate our privates?!"

Hard Ticket to Hawaii (1987)

Filmed in Molokai (Hawaii), this Andy Sidaris sequel and action thriller (and the first Sidaris title released on DVD) was about drug smuggling. It was the second of the Triple B Series (Bullets, Bombs, and Babes) by Sidaris. Its taglines were:

"This Ain't no Hula!", and "Pay the Price for Paradise"

It replaced the original Cody with a Warren Beatty look-alike character, a special agent named Rowdy Abilene (Ronn Moss). The film also featured a razor-sharp frisbee weapon, a bazooka, a shipment of diamonds for a drug dealer, and a huge killer mutant snake.

The stars were two super-sexy undercover agents who operated an air-cargo service in Hawaii:

  • Donna Hamilton - Dona Speir (Playboy Playmate March 1984)
  • Taryn - Hope Marie Carlton (Playboy Playmate July 1985)

In addition, there were two other Playboy Playmates as other characters:

  • Edy - Cynthia Brimhall (Playboy Playmate October 1985)
  • Pattycakes - Patty Duffek (Playboy Playmate May 1984) ("You've got to exercise every day to keep these little puppies firm...A healthy mind and body are very important...Good breasts are a great asset")

Picasso Trigger (1988)

This produced and directed Andy Sidaris action/adventure film was the third of the Triple B Series (Bullets, Bombs, and Babes) by Sidaris. It was an espionage thriller with the third Rowdy Abilene agent, now named Travis (soap star Steve Bond), with the tagline:

They take their art seriously. They kill.

Double agent Alejandro Philip Salazar, code-named after a fish called The Picasso Trigger, was assassinated on museum steps in Paris by double-crossing bad guy Miguel Ortiz (Rodrigo Obregon), after donating a $3 million painting. Ortiz wanted to gain control of Salazar's international crime syndicate (involving smuggling and money laundering). Ortiz then began vengefully murdering federal agents who were involved in the Ortiz case and in his brother's death.

As in most of the Sidaris pictures that starred Playboy Playmates, Travis appeared with the two sexy agents from the second Sidaris film Hard Ticket to Hawaii (1987) - (Dona Speir and Hope Marie Carlton) and others, including:

  • Pantera - Roberta Vasquez (Playboy Playmate November 1984)
  • Kym - Kym Malin (Playboy Playmate May 1982)
  • Inga - Liv Lindeland (Playboy Playmate January 1971 and Playboy Playmate of the Year 1972)
  • Patticakes - Patty Duffek (Playboy Playmate May 1984)
  • Edy - Cynthia Brimhall (Playboy Playmate October 1985)

Savage Beach (1989)

Writer/director Andy Sidaris' action/adventure film was the fourth film of his Triple B Series (Bullets, Bombs, and Babes) of twelve films, and his third Hawaiian-based crime caper. Its tagline was appropriate:

If You Think They Look Easy To Kill, Think Again.

This one was about smuggling cocaine in pineapples, and a search for gold on a remote island. Rowdy Abilene was a special agent named Shane Abilene (Michael Shane, Playgirl's Man of the Year). One of the highlights was a topless spa session with the four main female stars in the first ten minutes.

Back again for the third time - as Donna Hamilton and Taryn respectively were the sexy federal drug enforcement agents Donna Hamilton - Dona Speir (Playboy Playmate March 1984) and Taryn - Hope Marie Carlton (Playboy Playmate July 1985), and supplemented by:

  • Pattycakes - Patty Duffek (Playboy Playmate May 1984), another agent
  • Rocky - Lisa London, a redhaired agent
  • Kelly - Maxine Wasa, a sexy beauty
  • Anjelica - Teri Weigel (Playboy Playmate of April 1986 and future hard-core porn actress)

L.E.T.H.A.L. Ladies: Return to Savage Beach (1998)

This Andy Sidaris film, his twelfth and final Triple B feature (Bullets, Bombs & Babes) was released as the predictable sequel to Savage Beach (1989), and was taglined:

The Big Guns are Back.

It starred the following big-busted 'actresses' who took the roles of undercover agents, members of L.E.T.H.A.L. (Legion to Enforce Total Harmony And Law), who pretended to run the KSXY radio station, but were really engaged in a search for diamonds:

  • "Willow Black" - Julie Strain (Penthouse Pet of the Year 1983)
  • "Cobra" - Julie K. Smith (Penthouse Pet February 1993)
  • "Tiger" - Shae Marks (Playboy Playmate May 1994)
