Storyline

This is a serious attempt to look into the lives of three different woman that come together as roommates in New York. Each of them were attempting to step out of their old, abused selves and start new lives. Although they try to support each other's goals, their old lives creep back into their work, relationships, and apartment. They meet abusive men just as before. However, this time, each is affected differently. One falls back into her old ways, one finds her dream, and the third manages to keep an even keel, only to end up looking for two new roommates to start over again. Written by Don

Overpraised and pretentious

The overpraise this glorified porno has received is staggering. Veronica Hart may had been good in other roles; here she is trying too hard. Samantha Fox is downright terrible and over-acting(if we can use that word 'acting) and obnoxious to watch. Her only believable dialogue occurs when performing her sex-scenes, in all seriousness. Kelly Nicols,ironically, gives the only pure performance with her natural delivery. Jamie Gillis is fine,as usual. Chuck Vincent evidently got his directing-knack down with future efforts,but this is a fancy wrapped package with nothing inside, except a self-fulfillment wish for Vincent.
