Netflix claimed this was 52 minutes long but IMDb said it was 86...too bad IMDb was right!, 29 September 2010
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

The film is about a philandering actor whose affair is made public by a tabloid reporter who illegally videotapes him having sex with his actress co-star. The wife is naturally angry and publicly sues him for divorce. When this wife is brutally killed soon after, they naturally assume that the man did it--he had a motive and had acted very violent since the affair was publicized.

The first two minutes reveal that this is some sort of soft-core porno action film--a really, really stupid one! That's because as the film begins a couple is on the run and the man has an arm that is moderately bleeding. So what do they do? She pulls off her blouse and wraps is in her shirt and they then have sex....though somebody is supposedly chasing them! Then, you see a guy with a rifle shoot down a model helicopter! Oooh, I see Oscar! This 'film' stars Dana Plato and Brigitte Nielsen--and it has Oscar written all over it (well, maybe not). It's actually just a crappy film shot with what seems like a home movie camera with nothing to recommend it, though I could see people watching it in the hope of possibly seeing Plato naked! I am sure there are some guys with "Diff'rent Strokes" fetishes out there! But, considering how messed up Plato was at the time and that she died soon after, it's all too creepy for me--especially since Plato looks about 45 even though she was only about 31--she also bears a strong resemblance to Faye Dunaway in "Mommy Dearest". Hearing Plato cursing like a sailor and behaving so rudely is just nasty...and not in a good way!! And, speaking of nasty...Brigitte Nielsen just looks pretty sad...a shadow of her once beautiful self. I never thought I'd feel sorry for this lady, but this film certainly made me feel bad for her.

The entire production is shoddy from start to finish. The acting in particular was horrible--very, very amateurish to say the least. You know it's bad when Plato and Nielsen are the best actors in the film!! As for the direction, it's fair to say that if Ed Wood had been alive, he might have been assumed to be the man in charge! So why did I watch this dumb film? Well, I am a bad film fan and have seen most of IMDb's Bottom 100. While this film hasn't made the list (due to having too few reviews for it to qualify), it's score of 1.2 would put it towards the top--a distinction it would truly deserve.
