Not a good film, but a classic nonetheless.....It gets a D-.
3 January 2003 | by Smooth BSee all my reviews

Why did I give a D- to a film I call a "classic"? It's more personal than anything. This film was released when I first began watching Skinemax movies for more than just the sex. It's one of the first Skinemax movies I remember seeing that was deemed a "Skinemax movie." However, time hasn't been so kind to this film.

Two friends hit the desert in an old Chrysler LeBaron looking for fun and adventure in Las Vegas. Heather, played by Carrie Janisse (the tall, skinny blonde) and Maggie, played by Missy Browning (the busty brunette) are our principal characters. Eventually they pick up a hitchhiker on the desert road, and eventually, like clockwork, Heather sleeps with the guy. The next day, the girls get kidnapped by guys in black shades posing as state troopers. The next thing you know, they're in some pseudo-prison for women where the standard issue uniform is a white tank top and cutoff denim shorts. Maggie really fills out her tank top....it seems that she's the only girl who does.

In short, the girls here get injected with something that makes them complete nymphomaniacs, capable of fulfilling any man's fantasy, no matter how weird or wild it may be. There are a few in this movie....a desert scene, a cowboy and indian girl scene, a bondage scene, even an orgy scene with girls dressed in togas. They got everything in here....except a plotline. I don't think the writers ever came up with one. This film could have been called "Sexual Anthology" or "Tales from Tank Top Prison" or something like that. Just keep showing different sex scenes in different situations. The story is plain awful and is one reason this film gets a low grade. Luckily, this film is quite short, timing in at under 75 minutes.

Women: D+ (The women didn't look all that great. Only Missy Browning was anything to write home about. I'm a sucker for big boobs.)

Sex: D- (The sex scenes were inventive in terms of their scenery and concepts, but the sex itself wasn't all that great. The scenes were in slow motion most of the time and painfully short. Even the uncut version is like this, so don't bother looking there either.)

Story: F (There was no story. Really. I'm not kidding.)

Overall D- (It comes down to a scene where Maggie was daydreaming in the desert. A mystery guy pops up out of nowhere and Maggie rips off her clothes and gets on top of him. That scene alone keeps this film from getting an F. As bad as this movie is, I still have a soft spot for it....for what reason, I have no idea.)
