Storyline

A rich man offers his masseur, a former baseball player with damaged knees, $50,000 to have an affair with his wife so she'll be in violation of their pre-nuptial agreement and he can divorce her without losing his fortune. The masseur agrees although he is already having an affair with the wife, and they together work out a way to set up her husband in order that she does get his fortune. But when the client is murdered and the real wife shows up the masseur has to clear his own name, and as he begins to piece together the evidence he realises that he's been played by yet another man who still holds a grudge from years before.

Not bad
24 June 2001 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Though it features unknown actors, "Rubdown" turned out to be a pretty watchable movie when I decided to view it one night. Michelle Phillips, of The Mamas and the Papas fame, is quite sexy in this film, despite her age. She has been somewhat successful in her transition from Rock and Roll to the small screen. "Rubdown" has a surprisingly strong storyline tightly fitted into a short running time,which makes for a fairly thrilling flick. Michelle Phillips is very attractive during the massage scene. In it she is shown only from her chest up, leaving the rest to the viewers' imagination. I found this understated photography rather erotic.

Though you may have never heard of it, "Rubdown" is a dramatic tension-filled film.
