Sexual soap opera with some casting couch types seducing a fey pretty boy.
2 June 2003 | by (Colorado Springs) – See all my reviews

This is one of those nondescript, late-night cable entries generally referred to as erotic thrillers. This one's rather boring at only 84 minutes; and it's too softcore and humorless to be as engaging as some. The bimbos are all very attractive, should that be your sole criteria for indulging.
