Prior to this movie's theatrical release, an industry executive once said of this film to People Magazine: "Says one studio Vice President, 'If it's a bomb, we can all applaud the fact that we don't have to talk to them. But Bo (Derek) is still a name, and she will still get financing. No one is too much trouble if they've just come off a hit." See more »

If you're looking for a well-scripted plot,believable characters, firm direction and seamless editing then Bolero is a strange film to see. I cannot believe that Bo Derek's character finds it impossible to lose her virginity anywhere but in Spain. The film itself lacks interesting plot and characters and most of the time is just plain boring. However, I suspect that just about everyone, myself included, who sees this film only sees it for one thing - The Body, and it does not disappoint. The lighting and camera work shows off Ms Derek's shape to best advantage although the end fantasy scene is spoilt by flashes of light.
I've given a rating of 3 for Bolero simply because The Body lifts it above 1. If you want to see Bo derek's body, watch this or Tarzan the Ape Man. If you want to watch anything else, watch something else.
