George Matthews cannot seem to get himself worked up about anything: the girlfriend he is about to lose, his soon-to-be repossessed car, or even his draft notice. One day, he sees a beautiful but detached model and he begins to follow her. From Malibu Beach to Beverly Hills mansions to Santa Monica Boulevard's cheap strip joints, Los Angeles is critically examined.

The story of a young slacker on his way to Vietnam while staving off the repo man after his gem-like '47 MGTC, "Model Shop" just kind of lies there. Gary Lockwood is an okay actor and so is Anouk Aimee as the "model" in said establishment of the title, they just don't get a chance to prove it with the lousy script they had to work with. If you think the scripting is bad just wait until you cop a load of Alexandra Hay, the wavering, tentative girlfriend who plumbs new depths of thespianitude, she gives bad acting a bad name. The saving factor to me was the "time capsule" effect of shooting a movie wherein the back drop is Los Angeles, always changing L.A. and not so often for the better. I love my hometown and never tire of seeing where it came from.

This movie is just brutal. There is no real plot and it is almost painful to watch in the hopes that the movie gets better. It doesn't. Even if they had taken the time to film some great shots of L.A. in the 60s that would have made it semi worth while. Unfortunately they didn't. Leave this one on the shelf.
