Not a great film, but worth watching for female bodybuilding contest scene.
27 December 1998 | by See all my reviews

Despite appalling script and acting, this film is well worth seeing. This is because it features a (fictional) female bodybuilding contest which features many of the early stars of the sport, such as Rachel McLish, Lisa Lyons and Candy Csentsits. They all look very beautiful, not like today's gargantuan female bodybuilders. This section of the film should definitely be watched with one finger on the pause button (if you know what I mean!)
