shari shattuck is catalyst in otherwise inert chemistry
shari shattuck saves this movie by stripping and grinding, and i mean that in the most serious way. basically, the film wants to be a slick, tantalizing adult short story, like a RED SHOE DIARY ditty. and there's nothing wrong with that, esp. since its package is fairly informative about its contents. it promises steam, so it had better deliver. but lead-man andrew stevens and director jim wynorski appear to have conceived of this film with more than a slight nod to the most perfunctory aspects of the adult xxx genre. yawn! torpid characters, low-budget camera-work. since we know ms. fairchild is not going to do it, if ms. shattuck had also abstained from nudity, the movie would have fizzled like so much middle age without viagra. what is remarkable, though, is how it sizzled! ms. shattuck seems intent on giving BODY HEAT and BASIC INSTINCT some decent competition. despite the script's thin excuses which telegraph the sex scenes, the movie delivers as promised. the rest of the cast owes ms. shattuck for this one.
