Storyline

Olympic gymnastics coach Francine Lake and her twelve gorgeous students train on the Island of Crete. The rigors of training preclude most sexual activity with the locals, thus the girls spend their evenings in quiet frustration. Likewise repressed is training-school janitor Ulysses, a notorious peeping tom. When one of the girls is sexually assaulted, Ulysses is the most likely suspect. It turns out, however, that the film's true antagonist is much closer to the situation than it first appears. Upon further investigation, it is found that the rape may have been related to a Cretan ritual of the "Bull." Written by Anonymous

Craptastic movie!
22 May 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I think what makes this movie magical is the idiocy of the plot itself: I challenge filmmakers everywhere to cross gymnastics with ancient Cretan culture, sprinkle it with a a pseudo-rape storyline and a teenage rock band and come up with a serious movie! I came across it on late night TV and literally could not stop watching it. It has a slightly insane vibe to it, with performances are abrupt and melodramatic and a finale so bizarre you'll be left shaking your head. I also enjoyed the loving filming of the girls gym workouts, one of the only times in the film when the viewer is lulled into a state of equilibrium. An absolutely stupid, yet entertaining movie.
