Deadly Embrace more like Deadly Embarrassment
3 July 2006 | by (columbus, ohio) – See all my reviews

Wow, what can i say about this movie, Jan-Michael Vincent reportedly had just come out of rehab and accepted this movie, apparently he needed some fast cash, he actually looks quite healthy, tanned, thin, fit, and looks the California surfer type with his sun bleached hair, his scenes with Jack Carter are the only parts that give this film any credibility and in fact, seemed, that many of those scenes (if not all) were filmed separately, as the film cuts to JMV then Carter but i found it to contain quite a bit of humor, though this wasn't it's intention. The actor, who plays Chris (Chris Bauer)seems to me, like this was probably his first acting job and was probably paid scale (if that) in such a low budget production, the scenes between him and Linea Quigley are embarrassing stale with a total lack of chemistry between two people very unfamiliar with each other, it's also obvious that there was no rehearsal and the scenes were taken on one shot (again keeping the budget down) the so-called mansion looks middle-class at best, this film was shot in 3 days and looks it. The premise has JMV looking for a way out of his marriage, in his words "The novelty has worn off" and wants to take up with his moronic, brain-dead secretary, while his sex-starved wife (Ty Randolph) does everything within her womanly power to seduce the young Chris (Chris Bauer) and gets her wish but Chris has regrets about it when Qugley comes to visit, because it was filmed so quickly and to give it legit running time, it has fantasy soft core scenes adding additional minutes of footage probably to get it distributed, but you'll need to FF through these to get the predictable ending, JMV at one time was considered a viable star but why in the world he didn't concentrate on interesting minor character roles, in major studio releases, instead of top billing in trash like this, is beyond me.
