Very GOOD!
28 November 2004 | by (Hampton, IA) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie from the concept that you can take out the porn parts and enjoy a good movie. Naturally we see Marilyn's "Ivory Snow" soap box in the laundromat! Lisa Delaeu was also very good as the washed up singer. I just really enjoyed this movie. Very good scene with John Holmes at the end! This really is a pretty accurate movie of how music singers COULD sleep their way to the top. I don't know if it is a popular thing, but I'm sure it could happen.

For being a movie in the "Golden Age" it really does stack up well against the videos of today. No fake tits, but the acting makes up for it very well... I give this movie a 10!
