Switchblade Pictures
Big Bad Mama-San - Dekotora 1/ Dekotora Gyaru Nami
Written and directed by Hideo Jôjô
Japan, 2008, 75 minutes

Big Bad Mama-San: Dekotora 1, the first of what promises to be a new series of releases from Switchblade Pictures, will be available this coming Tuesday, December 10th, 2013. It's about a  trucker named Nami, who knows how to haul ass and make good time on Japan's highways and back roads. Oh, and her own sweet ass and accompanying good looks will make you want to make time with her!

Nami is the daughter of the late Toraichiro Saito, a legendary and beloved driver who left her saddled with his debts. To pay off the debts, she makes deliveries in her dekotora, an extravagantly decorated truck. ( See the dekotora entry in Wikipedia for a fuller description.)

In this episode, Nami is befriended by Momoka, a truck-stop hooker with the proverbial heart of gold. Momoka wants to change her ways and become Nami's assistant so that she can regain custody of her daughter Michi.

When they mistakenly load a box of drugs on Nami's truck, they run afoul of a pair of drug couriers. Things look pretty grim for them as the couriers decide to bring them to their boss, who's thinking of branching out into the sale of body organs!

Language options are the original Japanese soundtrack (with English subtitles) or an all new English dubbed version. Disc extras consist of the original Japanese trailer of the film and trailers of other Switchblade releases.

Big Bad Mama-San - Dekotora 1 is sexy, fun romp, a film in a category all its own.

ACF Rating: 3 out of 4 stars; pleasant and enjoyable entertainment with some soft-core nudity. A sexploitation film with a better than average story, some real heart, hot babes and outrageous trucks!

Coming next: Smokey & The Bushido. Can't wait!
