Time Out says

Standout 'Best Worst' movie in which astronauts crash-land on Venus and discover that women are ruling the planet. It takes the earthlings a while to grasp the feminine superiorities ('Even if a woman could build a gizmo like that, she'd never know how to aim it!'), and rather longer to locate the leader (Gabor) of those subversives who feel that 'vimmin cannot live vizout men'. The Place may be Venus, but the Time looks more like cocktail hour than the future; everyone's wearing vintage Swanky Modes and ice-skating skirts. There's also a fine display of '50s sublimated sexuality in the endless kissing scenes - which may have you pondering, along with the expedition's professor, 'How ironic that our lives and the lives of millions on Earth should depend on the sex appeal of our Captain'.
