There are only two reasons to see this one (no, not Shannon Tweed's
which you can see almost anywhere) --
1. Stella Stevens was 54 years old when she made this film, but gives a far hotter performance than you usually get from women less than half her age. Some gals just have IT -- Stella always has, and I guess she always will. Enjoy!
2. The black and white print shirt worn by the villain in the scene in which he gets his comeuppance is the single most hilarious garment in the entire history of human civilization. Enjoy!
"Last Call," a 1990 erotic thriller from Jag Munhdra, the director of the
steam-fest, "Night Eyes," starring Tanya Roberts and Andrew Stevens, is on
the loose again with this little sexcapade which involves handsome real
estate guy (William Katt) falling in love with the secretary of the guy he's
just merged businesses with (Shannon Tweed). Anyway, the guy, Jason is his
name, turns out to be a crook, and he embezzles millions of dollars from his
clients' companies. Katt and Tweed, soon fall in love, and together they
embezzle back what Katt's company has lost in assets, all the while having
little escapades in elevators, staircases, and even on the roof of Tweed's
apartment building. Stella Stevens (Andrew's mama) even turns in an
Overall, this movie was pretty good. It was one of the first to launch the wave of erotic soft-core sex thrillers, which were SUPPOSED TO (but they haven't always) feature: a good plot, decent acting, alluring actors and actresses, and scenes of feverish sex and nudity. "Last Call" directly followed the much sturdier predecessor "Night Eyes," which had scenes with candlewax, in the show, and a health hazard on some stairs.>However, "Last Call" is still enjoyable. Oh, by the way, while Shannon's character is a secretary by day, she is a bad girl exotic dancer by night.
Be forewarned that her act is very, very scary!!!
****SPOILERS**** Convoluted and complicated movie about murder thievery
blackmail and revenge that's only worth watching for the highly erotic
and sizzling sex scenes in the film every fifteen or so minutes. That
keeps you awake just as your starting to conk out trying to follow the
movies numbing and almost indescribable story.
The story has to do with a couple of con men Jason Laurence & Nick Singleton, Matt Roe & Alvin Silver, who are working together with corrupt businessman Morris Thayer, Joseph Campanella. The three are out to get their hands on the real estate holdings of realtor's Paul Avery & Mike Mllison, William Katt & Joseph Dellger. Nick who wants out of the shady deal has a hooker sent to to him later that night, by his partner Jason, who was told to give Nick a real "good time". That "good time" has poor Nick dying from a heart attack.
Paul later gets together with Jason's secretary Cindy, Shannon Tweed, who both end up turning the tables on Jason by embezzling the money that he embezzled from Paul & Mike. Mike who didn't know of Paul and Cindy's actions tries to get even with Jason by "fixing" his car breaks. This has Jason's wife Carol, Karen Ellse Baldwin, and her mother Betty, Stella Stevens, drive off with Jason's car and then ending up in an accident where Carol is badly hurt and her mother Betty killed.
Carol later finds out that Jason had an affair with her mother Betty and is killed by him when she goes berserk and attacks him. Jason in defending himself breaks Carol's windpipe with a cue stick. Just as that happened Morris pops into the house wanting his money which was stolen from Jason by both Paul and Cindy. That was after he stole it from Paul and his partner Mike! With all this confusion now out of the way Morris ends up getting shot to death by Jason.
Crazed and insane Jason go out looking for Paul and Mike and Cindy to do them in for what they, with the exception of Mike, did to him in getting him in the awful mess that he's in right now. Spotting Paul and Mike in the street Jason runs down and kills Mike as Paul runs away and hides in Cindy's loft apartment. Later Jason breaks into Cindy's apartment, who was having an affair all this time with Paul. Trying to kill both Cindy & Paul Jason ends up getting a knife in his chest by Cindy who it turned out, to no one's surprise, secretly saw him kill her mother over twenty years ago when she was a little girl.
The story itself is total Hollywood schlock but the sizzling scenes between Paul and Cindy as well as the almost unbearably hot erotic sequence between Jason and Betty made the movie "Last Call" more then worth watching.
I remember one night in the fall of 1992 I watched this steamy erotic-thriller on a movie channel, and since then I have been hooked on Shannon Tweed films. Can you blame me as good as the woman looks. Shannon is perfect in this film from every sexy scene she does to the great acting. I just enjoy that love scene with Shannon and William Katt I call it love on a rooftop! Not only is this just a movie of sexy scene after scene, but the plot keeps you interested as Shannon Tweed and William Katt discover a scandal and benefit in the process while Shannon gets her revenge on a man who caused her hurt from the past. Last Call is another one of those movies that I have in my video collection, it is special to me because it was the first movie I watched featuring the sexy Shannon Tweed.
Did the people who made this film really believe that someone who had gone out of his way to rent a Shannon Tweed vehicle would be interested in real estate intrigues? The plot of this film is so convoluted that for the first 20 minutes you are literally lost, as the screen is filled with characters talking and you don't know who they are or what they are talking about. If you still want to check it out, if only for Tweed, be warned: a) It's not one of her best films, b) there are only two fairly explicit sex scenes, and they are pretty brief. I was more amazed with Stella Stevens' appearance; for a 54-year-old ex-sexpot, she still looks great. (*1/2)
