The original Body of Influence was a thrilling and highly erotic thriller. The sequel has none of the heat or interest of the first, and is completely predictable. The only similarity between the two films is that they both involve shrinks having affairs with their apparently very troubled patients. Jodie Fisher, the patient in this one, is lovely, but she's no Shannon Whirry (I guess its unfair to hold that against her -- Shannon Whirry is unique). When Daniel Anderson, the sequel's shrink, gives in to temptation, there's none of the lewd, gleeful release Nick Cassavetes displayed when he did likewise in the original. Skip this one and watch the original twice.
