Storyline

A young American businessman, named Larry, travels to Italy to visit his girlfriend Jamie Lee only to find her missing. In his attempts to find her, Larry realizes that she may have been murdered by one faction of two rival mafia families battling each other for Genoa's crime empire centering on a ruthless don, named Nerescu, whom controls the drug trade and is fighting Madame Positano whom controls the prostitutes. Larry soon gets caught in the middle of it all, unless a reluctant local hotel manager, named Ute, and a streetwalker named Bella Blu can come to his help. But who can be trusted?

Two Hot Babes One Scorcher of a Movie
12 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Traci Lords (Cry Baby plus various adult movies) and Denise Crosby (Star Trek TNG) star in this highly sexually charged thriller. This is a tale of innocent people being caught up in a gang war between two rival mafia families.

Crosby wins on the acting front, and in the hottie department. She gets the majority of the highly charged erotic scenes. Though Lords certainly gives her a run for her money in the hot babe stakes.

It's a great sexy thriller that contains plenty of action, So all in all a perfect movie for the boys. The girlfriend didn't like it, so i watched it again without her 10 out of 10
