campy movie, beautiful nude star, humorous dialogue, even a plot
24 December 2002 | by (St.Louis, Mo.) – See all my reviews

well,one of us is confused. With the right attitude,this is a terrfic movie starring the lovely Kay Lenz. If you liked her in "Breezy", you'll like her as much in this campy romp.

A maniac is killing strippers at a club..and the strippers won't talk to the cops. There is only one answer. The beauteous Detective Cody has to go undercover.Her partner talks her into entering an amateur contest.The winner ,as measured by an applause meter, get a full-time job .She does so,and then says to her partner, "But what if I don't win the applause meter?" "Sure you will " says her partner."All the guys will be there!"

The audience packed with hooting cops, Detective Cody is hesitant at first,but loosens and bring it all home.The problem is that she is a gorgeous woman, but not a great stripper. But she works hard, watches others, practices, and learns from the other girls. Soon she is a star, and liking it more and more. She is..liberated! (hey,it could happen. right?)At one point, the cops think they've nailed the guy and she is pulled off the case..but she refuses to quit! Dedication to justice is a praiseworthy quality. When to see her final show,you will agree!

This is a movie with good music,lots of stripping, some humor, a plot, and Kay Lenz (and friends)with no clothes on frequently. I'm ready for a sequel! Recommended...
