Storyline

Mitch and Carolyn run a bar that is not very financially stable. One day Jessica, a girl with a mysterious past, walks in and help turn the tables so to speak by dancing on them and taking her clothes off. This leads to the bar turning into a strip club and Mitch becoming more and more attracted to Jessica and less attracted to his alcoholic wife. Plans are soon devised to make Mitch's life more satisfactory but Jessica's past slowly creeps up on her and comes out in the open. Written by Josh Pasnak <chainsaw@intouch.bc.ca>

Better than Showgirls? You bet.
3 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

Yes this is another low budget New Horizons Home Video. However, this film does surpass Paul Vorhoeven's Showgirls on every level. Maria Ford's choreography puts Marguerite Derricks' choreography from Showgirls and even Striptease with Demi Moore to shame, and the film never makes the mistake of taking itself too seriously. Some better sound quality would have been helpful, yet one shouldn't expect anything spectacular from a New Horizons release. Ms. Ford also proves she has made improvements as an actress. Far better than her other films in which she has played a character working at a strip club (ex. the forgettable Stripteaser).
