This movie gets boring almost immediately, and once it hits rock bottom, it scrapes along this low point until the credits mercifully begin. Words really can't adequately describe how bad this was. Presumably, this was supposed to be erotic, but I've seen test patterns that were more arousing. There's lots of nudity, and music, and dancing...and that pretty much sums up the whole movie. Simply a complete waste of time.
