Wake up Hollywood, it's time Jaime Pressly was discovered!
13 September 2002 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

There may be more beautiful actresses out there, and there are certainly more talented ones, but few can match Jaime Pressly for sheer sex appeal! From the moment she turns up -- the camera panning up her legs in the first of a series of trashy, figure hugging outfits -- you're hooked on everything this avenging blonde bombshell does! (If another actress has ever looked hotter in a clingy white t-shirt with no bra, I must have missed it!) How come the pouting, plastic, silicone enhanced Denise Richards lands big movies like WILD THINGS and James Bond, while Jaime, who can play scheming bitches better, and has a sexual presence that burns up the screen (and a killer bod that's 100% natural!) is still stuck in StV flicks, or crap like NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE?? If Jaime had been set loose in WILD THINGS or CRUEL INTENTIONS she'd have been a superstar overnight!

As she goes about wrecking havoc and revenge on the family who wronged her, highlights here include: Jaime's topless swim/backstroke (in glorious slo-mo); handcuffing a drunk chick to her bed post (don't ask!); pouring champaign down her front to get a guys full attention (it works); dressing in dominatrix outfits; and effortlessly seducing a handsome rich kid, who she knows hasn't been getting any from his frigid fiancee ("Hmmm, I see we have a little unfinished business," she announces, before sticking her hand down his pants and purring, "Stock market's up.........and I see you're a major stock holder.") Pressly's breathy delivery when in seduction mode, and ultra-blunt abrasiveness the rest of the time is amusingly effective, hitting just the right note. There is barely a moment here when she doesn't totally command the screen. Please someone (Paul Verhoeven, John McNaughton) give this babe some quality trash that people will actually see! It's a crime to see her wasting away in vehicles for the likes of Steven Seagal and Jerry friggin' Springer!
