Overview

The world's leading drive-in critic Joe Bob Briggs is back again, presenting only the best in Elite's back catalogue of winners. This time, it's William Winckler's shameless ode to Russ Meyer vixens from yesteryear, The Double-D Avenger. It's not often that a commentary becomes the most important thing on a DVD, but when you're dealing with trash flicks like this, Joe Bob's stamp of info-packed hilarity is easily the main attraction for the disc (proven by his outstanding tracks on Elite's Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter and I Spit on Your Grave discs). Between his incomparable knowledge of synonyms for the female breast and exhaustive research skills (it seems aging starlet Haji goes so far as to claim that she's an alien!), the track is a home run of entertainment that sleazoid genre fans will eat up. Other extras include the original trailer, along with an infomercial-styled cable spot for the first DVD release and a whopping 76-minute behind-the-scenes featurette (which is almost longer than the actual movie, and just as painful too!). Finishing off with a photo gallery, the disc's extras turn out to be surprisingly packed for such a Z-grade title. All you really need is that commentary though -- don't be surprised if you never really end up watching any of that other stuff.A superheroine who proves the old adage that "it's what up front that counts" takes on bad guys and gals in this over-the-top comedy. Chastity Knott (Kitten Natividad) is the owner of a saloon which had been taking a lot of business away from a nearby watering hole run by cranky Al Purplewood (Larry Butler). Purplewood is trying to find a way to drive Knott out of business, but she has problems of her own to deal with when she learns she has breast cancer (no small problem for her). Knott is told that the rare Crockozilla plant has remarkable healing powers and to her surprise it not only cures her cancer, it gives her super powers. Just in time, too, because Purplewood has told the strippers who work at his joint to wipe out Knott once and for all. Transforming herself into the Double-D Avenger, Knott takes on the heavily armed band of exotic dancers (among them Haji, Raven De La Croix, and Sherri Dawn Thomas) and tries to restore order to her community. The Double-D Avenger also features Famous Monsters of Filmland editor Forrest J. Ackerman in a supporting role as a caretaker at a museum.
