9 sex Scenes (M/F/F,M/F,F/F)
My "Soft-core Skin-flick" rating: B-
The story goes as follows: A messed-up patient of a crooked psychiatrist is pushed and persuaded (usually with drugs) to do things she wouldn't normally do, such as sign her various real estate holdings over to her shrink's lawyer. It seems that they (meaning the psychiatrist, her lawyer and their entourage) were trying to kill her in order to get her hands on the money, but that never came out in the story. Instead, the lawyer tries to drug the poor girl up and make her think she's going out of her mind.
The storyline had good intentions, but faltered somewhere toward the middle. As for the rest of the film, it was your usual softcore sex-fest. An appearance by Amber Newman really put a smile on my face. There are some women in this film who are also hardcore porn stars (like Shayla LaVeaux) and a porno guy too (Randy Spears, first time I've seen a porno guy in a Skinemax-type film, not that I've ever noticed). The women as a whole don't look too bad, so the "Women" grade stays high. The sex scenes are standard bump-and-grind stuff, although there's quite a bit of moaning.
Women: B+ (There are hardcore porn actresses in this film, but they seem to be the ones who have been around the block one too many times. You can see the wear and tear on their bodies. Amber Newman is alright with me, though.)
Sex: B+ (The scenes were believable, and there was a fair share of moaning, which somewhat adds to the realism if it doesn't seem canned.)
Story: C+ (It was well-intentioned, but poorly written. A few too many plot-holes, but you usually have to forgive something like that in a genre full of movies like this.)
Overall: B (Good-looking women, decent sex and an average story. This is about the best grade a film will get from me with attributes like that.)
