Ladybugs
Starring:
Rodney Dangerfield


Rated: PG-13  For language.
Reviewed by: Frank and Chris  
Release date: March 27, 1992 Released by: Paramount Pictures Corporation

Rodney Dangerfield, with his bulging blue eyes, big pouch and shock of yellow hair, hams it up as coach of the Ladybugs, a teen girls' soccer team. Chester's (Dangerfield) company sponsors the team that his boss' daughter plays on, and if Chester wants a big promotion, he'll have to whip the girls into a trophy-winning group.

To help the inept team, he coaxes his girlfriend's athletic son to don a wig and falsetto voice and become one of the girls.

Jackee, from TV's 227, plays Rodney's secretary and assistant coach, and she's fresh and funny.

Rubbery-faced Dangerfield packs the dialogue with double entendres and sexual innuendos and there are numerous rear view shots of the female form. It's a silly, disrespectful film, and even though it wasn't my cup of tea, the audience, made up mostly of preteens, seemed to like it.
