like watching a train wreck--a really awful, stupid, unappealing one at that!
23 March 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is not Joan Collins' worst film, nor is it even the second-worst film. No, it's probably tied for 3rd with THE STUD (both are part of the great soft-core porn duo of films she made in the late 70s). While I really don't watch skin flicks, this one really didn't show that much and I felt I had to see it simply because I love seeing her awful films of that era. They are so bad and embarrassing to watch, they are mesmerizing! The movie is based on a base book by her almost equally famous sister, Jackie (as was THE STUD). I heard some time back that they now hate each other and don't even talk--I think these movies are the reason why!. It's trashy with a little bit of skin thrown in (though not much of Joan's). Combined with horrible acting, terrible writing and uninspired direction is perhaps the most annoying and stupid theme song ever. So bad, you might want to give it a look just to say you saw Joan at the absolute lowest point in her career.

By the way, I noticed some comments said that THE STUD is a better film. Perhaps, but it's like comparing Rectal Cancer to Leprosy--neither one is appealing or something you'd want!!
