Storyline

The marriage of David Burgess, a senior executive, and his beautiful wife, Sara Burgess, an interior designer, is under great strain because David is in the process of putting together the biggest telecommunications merger in the history of the business. Sara suggests that they attend a kinky sex club to revitalize their marriage and help David to relax. However, David's problems are exacerbated by a huge power struggle at his office between Karen Stone, Gil Braman and himself. Karen, a beautiful, ambitious, ruthless, senior executive, is determined to take over this merger at any cost. To further her aims she hires the services of sleazy divorce private detective Ernie Fontenot to spy on the Burgess's. At the date of the merger draws near and all the blackmail and dirty tricks start to play themselves out, who will come out the winner? Written by Mark Smith <msmith@osi.co.uk>

The women are hot, things end there
25 July 2010 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Yet another erotic thriller involving a web of lies and intrigue, this time around though there are no decent sex scenes to redeem it. Our protagonist must be one of the most lifeless human beings ever captured on celluloid. He has an incredibly good-looking wife that he never seems to look at or want to be with, but apparently he doesn't want to cheat on her with his co-worker either because damn it, the guy just really can't stand beautiful women. Back to incoherent rants about his work. The nudity is kept to an absolute minimum, which is pretty much the last thing you need in this sleazy kind of flick. Tawny Kitaen (or possibly her body double) has one brief nude scene, Shannon Whirry keeps her clothes on for the entire movie. That's just weird, is anyone really supposed to watch this for the gifted actors or the subtle writing? The ending is pretty inventive, I'll give it that.
