Your expectedly sleazy movie. What else did you expect?
5 October 2005 | by (http://atheism.community.officelive.com/quotes.aspx) – See all my reviews

I really don't understand the low ratings for this movie, when Hollywood puts out many more films that pretend to be better than this but are just too afraid to be as sleazy. I mean, did you really expect a good plot from this? C'mon, no one's aiming to be Citizen Kane here.

Let's look at the cast. Frank Stallone, Don Swayze, Jerry Van Dyke...Sound familiar? This is a movie that doesn't claim or try to rise above the smut that it is. It's a movie where women are raped. The only way these women get justice in the film seems to be through violence. You can't do that in real life, so what message does it send? This is pornography for males. No more, no less.

As for those looking for sex scenes, there are a couple short, nude scenes. The first two actresses can't act. The rape of the only one who can is only implied.
