"I always heard that you hair guys did alright."

Vanna White plays Aphrodite (or Venus, as she prefers), the goddess of love, who is banished by Zeus from Mount Olympus until she can make a man love her without killing him. So she spends centuries as a statue until hairdresser David Naughton accidentally frees her. She insists he's in love with her, despite his being engaged to another woman, and won't take no for an answer. There are also two bumbling thieves straight out of a '70s Disney movie.

Vanna is gorgeous but she's the worst actress you'll ever see. She's so wooden and awkward in her line delivery. Pretty much every word out of her mouth will have you laughing for the wrong reasons. David Naughton is likable and delivers his corny dialogue like a pro. David Leisure plays Naughton's horndog friend, similar to his Empty Nest character. Amanda Bearse plays the fiancée. Little Richard, John Rhys-Davies, Philip Baker Hall, and Betsy Palmer also appear. It's obviously not a very original plot, bearing strong similarities to films like One Touch of Venus and Mannequin, among many others. I will say the ending was somewhat surprising, but not really in a good way. There is an enjoyable amount of cheese, to say nothing of the oddity of seeing the Wheel of Fortune chick trying to act. Worth a look if you like corny made-for-TV junk.
