But not just ordinary sperm - this stuff is from world leaders, celebrities and geniuses. She's gone "undercovers" to create a superior race for her communist countrymen. But hunky Dr. Reilly is onto her in more ways than one! He must coerce the nurse into giving up her diabolical plan - but will his bedside manner do the trick?Written by
The late eighties were the age of glasnost when the Cold War was coming to an end and relationships between Russia and the West were gradually improving. Hollywood, however, tended to ignore this welcome development in international politics and continued to churn out films, both thrillers and comedies, in which the evil Russian commies served as convenient villains, "Rambo III" and the Bond film "The Living Daylights" being other examples. (There were occasional exceptions such as "Red Heat" in which Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a Russian cop who joins forces with his American equivalents to take on the bad guys).
"Young Nurses in Love" is another film which remains loyal to the idea of Russian villainy. The basic idea is that in a hospital somewhere in America there is a sperm bank used to store refrigerated samples from the great geniuses of twentieth-century history- Einstein, Thomas Edison and so on. The Russians are determined to steal these samples to learn the secrets of these great men, so infiltrate a beautiful secret agent into the hospital disguised as a nurse. Once inside, however, she falls in love with a handsome doctor- who just happens to be an undercover American spy in disguise.
The title of the film might suggest either a Mills and Boon type romance with a medical background or (if "love" is taken to be a euphemism for "lust") a softcore porno set in a hospital. I am indebted to the previous reviewer for the information that one of the cast is an "infamous adult-film star", but despite this the film is not really particularly erotic. Nor for that matter is it a romantic love story. It resembles more closely an American version of a British "Carry On" movie. (The "Carry On" team made several films with a hospital setting). Those pretty young nurses all wear rather tight-fitting, revealing uniforms, but they generally keep them on and we do not see any bare flesh. There are certainly no sex scenes.
Sex scenes are not the only thing the film lacks. Humour is also conspicuous by its absence. The script is witless, based around a few clichés which are never really developed- the doctors are all drunk or incompetent and the nurses are all mercenary, hoping to hook up romantically with a high-earning doctor. The acting is equally bad; comedy is harder than it looks, and none of the cast here show any signs of having a gift for it. The "Carry On" films varied in quality from the reasonably good to the terrible, but "Young Nurses in Love" is even worse than the very worst of that series. 1/10
