As in Candide — or rather, a sort of Candita, a busty, blond teen innocent (Aulin) who stumbles through a late-’60s wonderland. In vignettes — written by Buck Henry, adapted from the novel by Terry Southern and Mason Hoffenberg — that attempt social satire but play like pretentious soft-core porn, poor Candy gets pawed by such boobs as a drunken poet (Richard Burton, pricelessly game as he sucks liquor off a car floor), an egomaniacal surgeon (James Coburn), and a sham guru (a madly vamping Marlon Brando). Candy is all very camp — but alas, no camp classic.
