Sybil Danning Enough Said
2 February 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Sybil Danning is the most beautiful woman who ever lived. Seeing this movie and the bikini and seduction scenes is enough to make any man throw away his viagra. He will no longer need it. This is a must see movie for any man.
