Storyline

Gail Palmer's thoroughly entertaining sequel to the "Candy" original. Candy comes to Hollywood and is immediately pounced upon by a wacky talent agent. She becomes the sexual toast of Tinseltown. One of the very best first hours ever produced, in that it is either no-stop comedy or great sex action all the way. After that, there is total action to the end, including the mandatory Hollywood orgy scene. An all star cast helps this clever show biz lampoon of "The Gong Show," "The Tonight Show," MGM Studios, etc. An absolutely superior sex comedy! Written by Anonymous

Funny and weird
29 May 1999 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

This is a funny and rather odd film with many 70s pop culture parodies. The acting is bad, the plot is typical, the theme is a parody of "Staying Alive". Starring Carol Conners the high-voiced innocent bimbo, this is dramatic cautionary tale of those seeking their fortune in Hollywood. Puts Ghandi to shame.
