A Very Hot Joan Severance Movie!
3 July 2005 | by obergssonSee all my reviews

If you want to see Joan Severance in her physical prime this is the movie to watch. Near the beginning of the movie is a scene where she is dancing with abandon to a funky groove wearing short denim shorts that will blow your mind. It's worth the price of the movie in itself. Shortly after she gets taken from behind by her husband as she seductively bends over in those wild shorts to get something in the fridge. A hot table clearing session ensues. Later in the movie she dances again in a very sexy way, this time downing tequila and smoking a cigarette ... There is also a hot sex in a car scene. This is my favorite Joan Severance movie!
