Storyline

Bobbie Warren is an up and coming Las Vegas nightclub singer with ties to the mob which land her in jail until she agrees to testify. After some harrowing experiences in the clink, she buys her way out by saying she'll squeal and is remanded into the custody of cops Clint Morgan and O.W. Thurston. They keep her in a casino hotel while she waits to see the D.A. Ostensibly a comedy/thriller, the plot mostly revolves around Bobbie falling in love with Clint while still holding out some hope of escaping the cops' clutches and returning to her boyfriends' arms. Too bad he's already plotting to have her rubbed out. Written by Chris Holland <chris@stomptokyo.com>

Fake this
21 February 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Okay, this isn't the best flick in the world, but Pia Zadora, and the Vegas scenery, in and out, help jazz it up. Zadora, plays Bobbi, a nightclub singer (again, is she acting here?), the girlfriend of a mobster she won't testify against. She's thrown in the clink. A near sexual experience with a tough hottie in a shower, forces her into a plea, as Zadora's not that sort of girl. She's taken under protection by Nevada cops, Savalas, perfect, minus a lollipop, and younger cop, Desi Arnez Jnr-yes "I love Lucy/Here's Lucy", who she develops an attraction for. Arnez Jnr is a kind of an uptight youngie who Zadora loosens up, especially in the motel room. She even plays a couple of the machines down in the lobby, a tradition in Vegas, where if you hold back on ever playing a machine here, you have amazing self control, something our beauty doesn't have, although she is a hot watch. The mob of course are getting restless and paranoid so you know, they're out to put a hit on our hottie, who does try to escape the clutches of her protector, who's so nicey nice, it's becomes slightly irritating. Unlike him, hardened detective Savalas sees right through her. Fake Out is somewhat strangely entertaining, that could of had better detail to story, but we have action, glittering lights, a little sex, and Pia's acting that is a good laugh. Her no acting is like watching Marilyn Chambers. What we do have in a fun performance is Larry Storch as a bumbling mob guy, who makes himself popular, by knocking the wheel of his car, against a machine while it's side up. And the machine rewards this certain player in spades. Not something you see everyday in movie. Love Pia's performed song at the start. Yeah... really loved it?
