Poor teenage Cindy (Debbie Osborne) doesn’t have a clue when it comes to sex.  She doesn’t have the best role models as her dad is having an affair with a stripper and her mother is a boozing alky.  Her big sister Donna (Nancy Ison) isn’t any help either as she’s always off having sex, smoking grass and saying stuff like “groovy” all the time.  Meanwhile Cindy yearns to grow up as fast as she can so she can experience all the sleazy pleasures the late 60’s has to offer.  With no one to turn to, Cindy learns the hard way about sex.  She masturbates, gets stoned, has a lesbian tryst with her best friend and eventually seduces Donna’s dope pushing boyfriend.  After Donna gets gangbanged at a sexy photo shoot, she comes home to see her boyfriend humping Cindy.  The scuzzbucket, annoyed that he just got cockblocked, throws Donna into the middle of the street and she is promptly run over by a car.  The End. 


Wait, HUH!?! 


You know for about 75 minutes, Cindy and Donna is a halfway watchable 70’s softcore skin flick.  Then from out of nowhere, the filmmakers toss in this moralistic, downbeat ending that throws cold water on all the sexy shenanigans.  The silver lining is that Osborne and Ison are pretty good in their respective roles and have plenty of topless scenes. 


If you can stomach all the sub-After School Special theatrics, you’ll also be treated to scads of topless dancing and lots of long (though not particularly titillating) softcore sex scenes.  The scant 79 minute running time certainly helps, but unfortunately the filmmakers felt compelled to ruin everything with their gratuitous “message” that comes out of left field at the very end. 


Ison gets the best line of the movie when scoring some grass:  “I could really dig on getting high!”
