Big-budget flick good for a few thrills.
29 April 1999 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

Made when Marilyn Chambers had some real star power in the adult film world, this was an ambitious movie with a big budget. But many a porn auteur had tried to make that great flick that will stand up to the legitimate films and failed in the attempt. This one doesn't make it either. In the end, fans will judge it as usual, on the sex action.

Marilyn plays an aspiring country singer willing to work hard to make it big. She's not averse to sleeping her way to the top, since as far as she's concerned, that's doing it on her own terms. Her scenes with Herschel Savage and with Tom Byron and another guy are personal favorites.

From the acting standpoint, the show is stolen by Lisa De Leeuw, who by this point in her career was one of porn's best thespians. She plays a boozing, over-the hill singer, and sadly, she was beginning to look the part a little. But it made for a good performance and she could sing better than Marilyn as well.

This movie was shown in its uncut version, in one intended for the Playboy Channel and such, and even a tamer version for networks like Showtime. Guess which one I'd recommend.
