So-So Flick
23 August 2001 | by (Toronto,Ontario) – See all my reviews

For a direct to video movie, what can we really expect? But with Kari Wuhrer in it, well then it does make it worthwhile to rent. Me being a Kari fan, I bought the DVD. The story is a good one here but the acting around Kari and Wings' Farrah Forke is really really bad. Lots of bad continuity throughout the flick as well. But if you can sit through the minor glitches like that and accept the bad acting around the two main stars, I think you may like it. But you have to keep in mind it is basically a B movie. Us Kari Wuhrer fans though will enjoy the lesbian scene in this movie which is what we all basically wait for and know will happen. Like I said though, B movie all over it. So if you are expecting something stellar then I say pass on it, but if you like Kari Wuhrer and don't mind low budget flicks with a pretty good storyline, then rent it. I would give the film a 6 out of 10 and 3 of those are added for Kari baby. Always remember that when it comes to Kari Wuhrer..her movies are rated "R" but she always puts a little "X" in them. Betrayel,Seduction,Jealousy,Revenge and oh ya T & A, all wrapped up in this flick.
