hot, hot, hot
26 September 2000 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie some time ago, and it is actually very interesting. The comment I wanted to make tho, is concerning the female lead, Rae Dawn Chong, who is just simply hot in this movie. I admit it, I watched the movie, because it was made by the notorious Zalman King, and he's most well known probably for his series on Showtime, Red Shoe Diaries. As a young straight man, I will say that my interest in the movie was purely to see a little flesh, but once you get into the movie, it's intriguing, and you just can't turn it off. The movie as a whole is very well put together, and the cast all give great performances. If you're looking for an erotic movie, it also works. Rae Dawn Chong, who I might just say does shed her clothes for this part, is sexy and exciting...especially her scenes with the male lead. It's not a movie for everyone, but if you want something different, it might just be your cup of tea, so to speak.
