Bye Bye Baby (1988) from Tuna

Bye Bye Baby (1988) is the story of a married couple (Carol Alt and Luca Barbareschi) who split and start divorce. Luca meets a beautiful blonde pool hustler (Brigitte Nielsen), while Alt makes time with a doctor she works with (Jason Connery). The four of them then play swap around for the rest of the film. 
For such a sexy plot outline, there is precious little nudity. We see breasts from both women, and Nielsen's buns in dark sex scenes.

Nielsen was nominated for a Razzy. 

The DVD is very poor quality, probably due to the original source material.

 I can think of  no reason to recommend this film. 

The Critics Vote

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 3.9 
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a D.
