More story, less nudity than most erotic thrillers
20 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Illicit Behavior is an erotic thriller with more story than sex. The plot has Robert Davi as an internal affairs investigator assigned the shooting death of a suspect. The police detective in the shooting (Jack Scalia) seems clean enough, but he has a hot looking wife (Joan Severence) who catches the eye of the man from the IAD. The set-up is noir lite but most people (myself included) who watch this "unrated" film are doing so for prurient reasons. On that score the film falls short. There is a sexy bump and grind on the kitchen table number toward the beginning of the film and there are a couple of other naughty bits later on. One should not expect much more than that. However, the acting is better than usual for this type of picture. Robert Davi adds a gravity to the film that was unexpected. Of course, there isn't much of a surprise to the thriller's outcome but is anyone expecting one?
