When the "Jills" are dancing in the restaurant they're both barefoot, but when the shot cuts to Dana Plato sitting back at the table, she's once again in her hiking boots. See more »
You know, I used to live with somebody back when I was in college.
Did you like it?
You know, I think I would've liked it better if we actually, uh, gotten along.
You know, I think the hardest thing about relationships with men is that they always want to be the ones in control. The minute a woman asserts herself and starts doing things that she wants to do, all that sweetheart business goes right out the window.

One from the Austin Powers school of sexual subtlety
Poor Dana Plato. Playing in this straight-to-video film exploitively titled after her old sitcom must have seemed so far away from the comeback she hungered for, and must have entered into her thinking in the months before her suicide. Actually she's rather appealing in it; although any woman over 30 and without the apple-like plastic breasts that appear in profusion in such films is going to catch my favorable attention.
The plot is the 'lesbian first time angle' we've seen done better, sometimes vastly better, in any number of films. The object of Plato's affection is one Landon Hall, who I doubt we will see in any film after she reaches 30 herself. Plato's Jill is recovering from a relationship with another woman, one who does not look even remotely gay, which should tell you about the target audience for this work. Bentley Mitchum (Robert's grandson) plays Jack, Hall's dumb lump of a boyfriend, who suggests that she have sex with Plato's character and reacts with offended rage when she actually does so. Concerning the sex scenes: well, let's just say they're tame enough to pass Blockbuster's seal of approval.
One particular moment cries out for showing in a future R-rated MST 3K: Bentley Mitchum's imitation of a Jack Nicholson psycho fit over a barbeque fire.
