Storyline

Erotic thriller about swindler Michelle Drake, who gets arrested in Singapore. Her only way to avoid prison is to marry a corrupt local businessman and agree not to leave the country. She does that, but swindles him and manages to leave Singapore with the help of a couple she knows. Back in the US, she arrives in Dallas and tries to contact her ex boyfriend, who's in the oil business, but Lisa, his current girlfriend, gets in the way. Michelle's "husband" follows her to the US and contacts her ex boyfriend's brother, who's also in the oil business. The husband identifies himself as Adam Chance and proposes a deal - he'll invest in the brothers' failing company if they give back both Michelle and what she stole from him. Lisa listens in on their dealings and decides to make a buck for herself. She contacts Michelle, warns her and proposes her a deal of her own.

Horrible, but three things stand out.
28 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

Granted, this film about a woman who was forced into a marriage with a corrupt Asian businessman who escapes and returns to U.S. to return to the man who unknowingly was the one who planned this marriage to help his struggling oil enterprise is cheaply done, but three things make this film worth sitting through just once.

1. Lisa Comshaw, who plays a Gentleman's club manager with a kind heart, delivers a convincing performance.

2. Rena Riffel, the only person who can say she appeared in both Showgirls and Striptease, delivers an annoying performance as a country girl, complete with accent, but she's so cute and adorable that you can't say anything bad about her.

3. James Hong, who directed and plays the businessman, has a scene where he's given a cowboy hat and he does a "Billy Joe Ho from the Dukes Of Hazzard" performance. Hilarious.

Otherwise, you've seen this movie before, and Shannon Tweed does her usual phoned-in performance.
