Plastic sincerity from the kung-fu car-crash kings
11 August 2004 | by (Sarnia, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Called "a PRETTY WOMAN for the 90's" on the box (an honor yours truly finds somewhat more befitting 1990's PRETTY WOMAN) and also compared to the Rock Hudson/Doris Day classics (of which we all know there are none), this rare foray outside of PM Entertainment's usual kung-fu-car-crash actioners comes off with all the plastic sincerity of a swanky LOVE BOAT episode - and feels as dated despite being set in the present day. Jack Scalia is a rich banker who decides to escape his mundane existence - and shrill wife (Betsy Russell) - by becoming a Hollywood star with the help of off-key lounge singer Brenda Epperson, her agent Elliot Gould (in another useless cameo), and - here's the stretch - movie screenwriter Kathy Ireland (!), with whom he falls in love. Katherine Helmond, James Doohan, Norm Crosby, Frank Gorshin and George Hamilton contribute cameos (presumably to give PM's marketing department something to work with) while the questionably talented Frank Stallone warbles two tunes on the soundtrack (as if Epperson's screeching weren't enough!).
