A young woman grieving the loss of her mother, a famous scream queen from the 1980s, finds herself pulled into the world of her mom's most famous movie. Reunited, the women must fight off the film's maniacal killer.
Off the top, I have to say that I really enjoyed Club Utopia. It did something that a lot of bigger budget movies fail to do - it amused and entertained me and kept my attention.
I thought the acting was good, and I loved the soundtrack, all provided by local GTA musicians.
The story involves a selfish, unlikeable, womanizing, control freak of a man Alex Enitlov(Srdjan Nikolic), with a beautiful but bored-silly wife Sally Enitlov.(Ellen Muller) A hate filled neighbour, Charlie, (Mike Oshust) a sleazy over sexed secretary,Gretchen(Inna Ivanova ) a hopelessly inept private detective Richard Sabatini (Frank Caruso), along with his complete wack job of a cousin.(Shiraz Tayyeb, another character is Sisco ( Brett Halsey), a strip club owner.
The Alex character makes it clear what sort of person he is from the first time we lay yes on him, and we immediately sympathize with his wife. Each time some little annoyance arrives at his doorstep, we smirk, and whenever his wife or anyone else gets one up on him, we love it.
One of the scenes I enjoyed the most is where Alex is trying to retrieve the morning paper under the watchful eye of his neighbour, Charlie, who is out hosing his driveway, and manages to soak Alex and the paper. Alex does not take this in good part and retreats into the house shrieking imprecations in Russian.
Alex has an unfortunate habit of recalling his infidelities in his dreams, in vivid detail. His subsequent sleep-talking makes Sally both suspicious and resentful, and provides us with side splitting laughter. Another annoying habit Alex has is completely ignoring Sally which leads to her brooding angrily, which in turn leads to her having elaborate dreams of avenging herself on Alex, and these are hilariously captured.
Even though he's carrying on a torrid affair with his secretary Gretchen, Alex is suspicious of Sally. Hethinks Sally is on to him and that she herself may be having an affair. He hires Sabatini, the inept private detective, to tail her. The scenes between Alex and Sabatini in Sabatinis' warehouse-office are hilarious. You know that if Sabatini wasn't broke, he would not take Alex on as a client.
Sally meantime has decided to get a job, and ends up through a series of mishaps, becoming an exotic dancer. The scenes with her interviewing for the job are really well done. I loved when she first meets the strip club owner, Sisco (Brett Halsey)and one of his strippers. Great scene.
The resulting chaos from Alexs' infidelity, Sally's annoyance with him, Sally's emergence from unassuming housewife to scintillating exotic dancer and the interactions with all the other characters makes a very entertaining romp.
