The Princess and the Call Girl Movie Review

Radley Metzger's final film gives up most pretense of being artistic, and that's unfortunate. Made for the Playboy Channel, this is low-budget softcore without much to redeem it.

Inspired (blatantly) from The Prince and the Pauper, Carol Levy stars in two roles as a virginal socialite and her lookalike pal, a high-priced call girl. For whatever reason, they decide to switch places for a weekend -- the virgin jets to Europe for a series of trysts, while the call girl stays home on the eve of her pal's wedding to a nebbish loser. Throw in an amorous maid who's constantly losing her clothes and I guess you've got a movie.

The Princess and the Call Girl's only real redemption comes in its unintended comedy. Best exchange (and it's dead serious):

He: "I saw this movie this morning... it was horrible and dirty."She: "I don't have HBO."

That's entertainment, people.

Available as part of the Radley Metzger Collection #3 box set with Carmen, Baby and The Lickerish Quartet.
