I have vague memories of seeing Barbarella on late night TV, during my childhood. But it took on a whole new meaning for me when a friend bought me the DVD a few years ago. Wowzers! Not only is a smoking-hot Jane Fonda mostly naked during the whole flick, but the Barbarella character herself is insanely awesome! I mean, how can you not love an intergalactic federal agent who jaunts through the cosmos in a fur-lined spaceship, battles evil in the name of love, and shamelessly indulges her sexual fantasies with everything from a whip-wielding bear man to Duran Duran's tortuous pleasure machine!?
