A good soft core mystery
13 July 2002 | by (Bowling Green, Ky) – See all my reviews

This is the story of a telephone operator overhearing a murder plot of a woman hiring an assassin to kill her sister. He then has to figure which of the sisters(Landon Hall, Shauna O'Brien) is plotting to kill the other. It's a good movie to see these two professionals doing what they do best; making great sex scenes, which they do. There is also a real good sex scene with Griffin Drew that adds to the flavor. This would be an interesting movie if the story was done without the soft core scenes, but as soft core movies go this is pretty good. It's worth a "7" at least.
