Sex, Please. . .With Billy Zane
22 July 1999 | by (The Poppy Field, OZ 69666) – See all my reviews

Lake Consequence is one of those movies that I'm embarrassed by myself for liking. The plot, (repressed, bored housewife has an affair with a sultry tree-trimming guy and some hot chick,) is contrived, but. . .well, there's no other way to put this. The sex scenes make this pic work. *Seriously* steamy. Billy Zane is intensely doable, if you know what I mean. For maximum viewing (and panting) pleasure, be sure to see the unrated version.
