No, it’s not kinky like that, even though Wendy O. Williams, dowager queen of punk, does take a turn in a leather bra. Even though the lead character in Pucker Up and Bark Like a Dog is an actress-wannabe named Taylor that works in a prison flick called Felony Girl. And even though Phyllis Diller gets fourth billing for five words and a signature laugh. In fact, this young-love story is so conventional — with a full complement of finding-the-true-thing-in-a-false-world scenes — it treats two lovers in a midnight fountain frolic as, well, unconventional. Some reasons to rent this movie, in the likelihood you missed it on the big screen, include lively performances by as-yet unknowns (Lisa Zane as Taylor, along with Sal Lopez as a wisecracking busboy with a very full tray). In addition, the mirror on Hollywood’s own hardscrabble backlot always fascinates, even if much of this tired tale can’t. C
