Petticoat Planet (1996)

As I watched this week of women in power, I wondered, how long until I have to watch a David DeCoteau movie? This one started and had Ellen Cabot listed as its director and I paid no notice until I looked up and noticed that the man in the love scene was nude and the girl was fully clothed. One quick look at IMDB and yep. I just got DeCoteaued. Is that a word? It is now.

Commander Steve Rogers — not Captain America — has crash-landed on a planet where all of the men died in a mining accident. And yes, for some reason, much like Oblivion*, the planet is a Western movie because all of the women wear — you guessed it — petticoats and the more masculine ones wear cowboy hats. Steve is, of course, fresh meat for these ladies and soon, they’re all battling over him.

Should you watch it? Well, the town is called Puckerbush Gulch, for one. And you get to see Elizabeth Kaitan (Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood, the last three Vice Academy movies), Lesli Kay (who was on As the World TurnsThe Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful) and Betsy Lynn George, the girl from Billy Idol’s “Cradle of Love” video cavort about in soft focus.

But yeah. It’s a total piece of shit.

*That’s because it was shot on the same sets as that movie and its sequel, Backlash: Oblivion 2.
