Trivia

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 »

"That THING will work, I guarantee you!"
5 November 2003 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Bo Derek plays a college graduate who is also a virgin - and she's unconvincing on both counts. Yes, her belly-dancing scene is a highlight, but did she have to wear so much make-up all the time? The rest of the film is a plotless, worthless affair, but at least it doesn't take itself all that seriously; and it's this intentionally campy approach that keeps it at least semi-bearable. (**)
