Storyline

THE CORPORATE LADDER is a Playboy Channel movie, filled with pseudo-erotica and some beautiful women. John Anthony Denison (Crime Story) plays Matt, an up and coming advertising executive, on the brink of a major ad promotion contract with a jeans company. In steps his new assistant, Kathleen Kinmont, whose take charge attitude and imagination, win the deal for him. Of course, Kinmont has more than her career in mind: she wants Mark. Mark, of course, is married to lovely Talisa Soto, who is also pregnant. But lust wins over and Matt does engage in an affair with Kinmont. As in THE TEMP and FATAL ATTRACTION, this relationship can only be deadly---from the movie's opening sequence, we pretty much know who Kinmont really is. Add seedy Ben Cross as Matt's associate/rival who coerces his women to have sex with him to "advance their careers" and the setup is constructed for the movie's obvious ending. Cross' performance is so over the top; he has three scenes in his pool where the dialogue ... Written by Anonymous

Fatal Attraction Playboy Style
19 November 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting little film, basically a re-hash of Fatal Attraction, but made by Playboy, so a fair bit of T&A as well. The plot revolves around Matt, a high-flying Advertising exec, who hires a seemingly fantastic new assistant in Nicole. Nicole proceeds to........................ well you can probably guess the rest.

The acting in this movie was generally not bad, you expect it to be atrocious but are pleasantly suprised. This feeling kind of sums up the movie in general. You expect it to be dire but end up quite enjoying it. The plot is engaging and moves along nicely, and of course the ladies are fantastic.

Obviously it's never going to be oscar-fare, but that's the beauty of it, you know this in advance yet still enjoy the flick.

This is a very very soft erotic film, good to watch with the Mrs, and will be a pleasant suprise. - 6/10
