Storyline

Michael Caine plays Matthew Hollis; a man on holiday in Rio with his best friend Victor Lyons (Joseph Bologna). Both men have teenage daughters with them. When Caine falls for Victor's daughter Jennifer (played by Michelle Johnson), they embark on a secret, if slightly one-sided relationship. Victor is furious when he finds out about the 'older man' in his daughter's life, and sets out to hunt him down with the aid of Matthew! Written by Rob Hartill

Another example of why I love the 80's!
28 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Now let me start by saying I love a good movie! I love a great script, engaging characters and brilliant cinematography.

***This movie has none of these things!

But it does have the type of storyline and pointless nudity that Hollywood seems unwilling to include in a mainstream film. This is one of those movies that was on HBO late at night when I was a kid and I loved it.

There's something to great nudity! We just don't celebrate it enough anymore! Plus Demi Moore pre-implants!
