Alternate Versions

To receive an 18 certificate the 1987 UK video was cut by over 14 mins and removed all the hardcore footage. It was passed uncut the same year with an R18 certificate, meaning it could only be sold in licensed sex shops. See more »

Very GOOD!
28 November 2004 | by hamptony2kSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie from the concept that you can take out the porn parts and enjoy a good movie. Naturally we see Marilyn's "Ivory Snow" soap box in the laundromat! Lisa Delaeu was also very good as the washed up singer. I just really enjoyed this movie. Very good scene with John Holmes at the end! This really is a pretty accurate movie of how music singers COULD sleep their way to the top. I don't know if it is a popular thing, but I'm sure it could happen.

For being a movie in the "Golden Age" it really does stack up well against the videos of today. No fake tits, but the acting makes up for it very well... I give this movie a 10!
