Storyline

Faye Hanlon is a community-college professor with an emotionally depressed husband and an abundance of sexual frustration. Her sister drags her to a male strip-club for a girls-night out, where she discovers that one of the dancers is her failing student Rick Monroe, a.k.a. "Ricky the Rocket". A heated affair between teacher & student ensues, as Faye struggles to reconcile her emotions and make consequential life choices: Continue her lustful sessions with the studly-but-shallow teen stripper? Or break it off with Ricky & work to salvage her marriage to the loving-but-distant husband? Written by Anonymous

Trivia

During the opening credits the decommissioned Saturn V launch tower (Mobile Launch Platform #1 retrofitted with the 'milkstool' pedestal (which was built by Chrysler Corporation Aerospace Division) fitted to launch the Saturn IB for Skylab and the final Apollo-Soyuz mission) is seen next to the Vehicle Assembly Building (seen in the film with one side of the building painted with the Star and Stripes with the 1976 Bicentennial Star, which was removed in 1998 and repainted with the NASA meatball logo). The Saturn V (SA-514 second and third stage, along with a first stage (S-IC-T) which was a test stage painted in the Saturn V livery, with BP30 (a mock up of the Apollo CSM), was originally earmarked for the canceled Apollo 19 mission, which was reassigned as Apollo 15 right after Apollo 20 was canceled. After 1996, the Saturn V on display at Kennedy Space Center is now housed at the Apollo/Saturn V Center where it has been enclosed after years of sitting outside being subjected to corrosion and elevated off the ground - it has been restored to its original condition. This also holds true with the other Saturn V on display at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX where it was restored in 2004 - a building was constructed around the Saturn V and completed in 2007; both Saturn Vs on display are properties (docents) of the Smithsonian Institution. The decommissioned launch tower was dismantled and refitted to LC39B which was not in use when the film was released - this launch facility last used in 1975 during Apollo-Soyuz was operational January 28, 1986 when the Space Shuttle Challenger disintegrated 73 seconds after liftoff.

The Body Beautiful!
8 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's another movie that gets a bad rep. What happens is every 10 years or so a film comes along tailor made for women (and gay men) and people (most likely straight men) go berserk. They weren't trying to remake Gone With The Wind but were simply trying to please the audience with the assets and charms of that beautiful 1980s underrated heart-throb Christopher Atkins. Forever regulated to "the blonde haired guy in the Brooke Shields movie"(the Blue Lagoon), this was his chance to shine. And he DOES! But of course, men reviewers and maybe some uptight female ones slammed the movie. It is actually entertaining with a good and subdued performance from Lesley Ann Warren not playing her usual "nervous broad" type role here. There is even a featured role by 1970s and 1980s Dance Fever host Deney Terio. The chemistry between Chris and Lesley is incredible and undeniable. Their sex scene is like a taking a peak in real life....was that a tongue he slipped her? Awesome soundtrack featuring the song Heaven by Bryan Adams and an early version of the hit song Obsession, later to be recorded by Animotion. But the real star is of course Christopher. What he is presumed to have lacked in thespian quality he more than makes up for, not only with his gorgeous looks, but also charisma. He never wanted to be Spencer Tracy...he simply wanted to entertain us...and in A Night In Heaven - he DOES! Viva Atkins!
