After seeing Grindhouse last weekend, I wanted to see something that came from the real grindhouse or drive-in of the '70s. A movie with the title Mean Mother looked like something up my alley. It seemed to have started that way with Our Hero Beauregard Jones making a drug deal with his contact that goes sour and has him kicking the bad guys' butts, but then we meet his white buddy from the Vietnam War and many of his exploits gets the lion's share of the story when they're separated. Too bad, though when it does get back to Jones, there's also his girlfriend Tracy King (better known as Marilyn Joi) who's there as eye candy but what eye candy! She's worth seeing when, after getting tied up, she convinces her white captor to set her free in exchange for some hanky panky with plenty of nudity provided on screen. I should note that Our Hero is played by Clifton Brown a.k.a. Dobie Gray whose best known hit song was "Drift Away" ("Give me the beat, boys, to free my soul. I wanna get lost in your rock-n-roll and drift away...") Also Italian redhead Luciana Paluzzi, who is best known as Fiona Volpe in the James Bond film Thunderball, plays the white buddy's doomed girlfriend Therese. Like I said, there's plenty of boring stretches involving the white buddy but by the end it's back to Jones for an action packed ending (of the low budget kind anyway) that should make you at least glad you saw this once...
