Vincent Raven:You sure are something; do you know that, Sandra?
Sandra:Do *you* know something, Vince? As soon as we deliver this video job, we're heading straight for Moorea, one of the hundred and thirty Polynesian islands. Floating in crystal clear water; two weeks of nude sunbathing, coconut drinks and making love. I love you, Vince; I can't stand to see you like this.

I love this flick!, 18 October 1998
Author: Joe 25 from Movie Land

I LOVE this movie! It ROCKS! Alice Cooper turns in what I think is an EXCELLENT performance for a low budget flick. I especially love the music video in the first few minutes. That rules as well. I have seen this movie a lot, and immensely enjoy it. A favorite in my video collection! If you love Alice Cooper, this film is a must!!!!!!!!!
