I'll admit, I still haven't seen the first 9 1/2 WEEKS all the way through; it says something when this B-movie sequel is shown on TV more often than the first film! Still, it was a popular movie of the 1980s, and I'm sure a lot better than this absolutely pitiful attempt to ride the then-popular wave of softcore movies clogging up cable TV in America in the mid to late 1990s.
Where to begin? Nothing goes right with this film, and it ends up as an amalgamation of terribleness. The script is horrible, the story overlong and nonsensical. This is a mood piece, so there's a lot of standing around, a lot of talking about nothing, a lot of leaning on walls. Director Anne Goursaud has a few similar movies in her filmography but this has to be her worst.
Mickey Rourke returns from the original movie and his presence is an embarrassment. He looks weird, his face altered by plastic surgery, so they try to hide him in the shadows for a lot of the time. It doesn't hide the obvious. Angie Everhart gives a C-level performance, nothing more, and isn't memorable at all. The film tries so hard to be erotic, but there are no sensual scenes and the attempts at them are excruciatingly embarrassing. In all honesty, I don't know what they were trying to do here except recapture the spirit of the original movie in some way, but it doesn't work.
