Angie finally takes it off; not bad at all.......A-
I just watched this movie last night, but it went by the name "Dangerous Desires" for some reason. Anyway, this was quite a treat for those who want to see Angie Everhart take it off.
Angie Everhart plays Beth, a parole officer who is obviously gorgeous despite her appearance--you know, the "frumpy librarian" type of clothing, the tied back hair, the glasses.....they did a great job of hiding her behind all that at first. During her first encounter with her boyfriend Joe, the glasses come off, the hair comes down and Beth goes to work. The difference is like night and day.
Beth's co-worker Caroline has been assigned the case of Gale, played by Richard Grieco. Gale is an artist who was charged with the murder of a woman named Lisa, who just happened to be Beth's best friend and former roommate (go figure). Of course, Beth asks to swap with Caroline to get the case. After some initial resistance from both parties, Beth meets Gale at an art gallery (look for a Gabriella Hall cameo as she plays the girlfriend of one of the browsers) and gets to know intimate details about him. From there, you know it's just a matter of time before they end up sleeping together.
As the movie goes on, Beth gets less frumpy and sexier. Her boyfriend Joe, who seems to be the jealous, overprotective type, continues to harass Beth about her close relationship with Gale. He even goes to Gale's house and threatens to kill him if he doesn't stop seeing Beth.
Of course, there's some killing going on, too. First, Beth's cat gets killed, then Maya, a woman who does modeling for Gale's artwork, is strangled to death. As the truth of the killer is revealed, Caroline gets a little too close and is bumped off herself. This leads up to the final scene, where Gale and Beth are making out passionately on Gale's bed. Joe walks in on them, gun in hand, and even more secrets come out. Here, we find out who the murderer is, and Beth's ulterior motive for having an affair with Gale. I don't want to ruin it for the 5 or 6 of you who will stick around that long, but let's just say that as the film fades to black, Beth has a big smile on her face.
Women: A (Angie Everhart finally showing some skin is enough for me, but brief appearances by Tina Tyler and Gabriella Hall scored extra-credit points with me.)
Sex: B+ (Only a handful of sex scenes, but were good for what they were. Angie Everhart is in most of them, so that's enough to keep the grade fairly high.)
Story: A (An erotic thriller with a better-than-average script and a couple of plot twists at the end. We also see plenty of character development from all of the major characters involved.)
Overall: A- (The "Sex" grade deducts one-third of a point from the final grade, but it was still a great film. Definitely worth taping. Why doesn't Angie do more of these? She looked like a natural. I can see her and Gabriella Hall doing an installment of "Summer Temptations" together--now that would be fun.)
