In the second movie of the fanchise the main character is played by Alyssa Milano. Milano and Jaime Pressly played together in an episode in Charmed (1998) See more »


Ivy, from the first film in the series, is shown as a small child and is referred to as "Ivy" both in the opening scene and later on in retrospect. The character's real name, however, had never been revealed in the first film; Ivy was a name that Sylvie coined when trying to convince her father to give her a ride home. See more »

Beautifull surroundings makes this film a blast
17 June 2000 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

Jaime Pressly a beautful talented actress portrays an awful character for the first time, she plays it good, but i rather her as the good girl.

Decent sex scenes, Beautiful surroundings and young talented actors is the ingredients this film needed to survive, the plot stunk and so did the ending. So in closing the only thing stopping this film from a total flop was Jaime Pressly.
