Not high art but fine as a guilty pleasure
27 January 2012 | by Maniac-9See all my reviews

Is any of the Poison Ivy movies ever going to be viewed as great achievements in motion picture history, not likely. But if you want to see a bunch of steamy scenes with the hot seductress Jaime Pressly who's using all of her conniving powers to get retribution then that's what you'll get. When you get to see Jaime Pressly nude on multiple occasions then it's definitely accomplishing what the movie set out to do.

Honestly I think that Jaime is way hotter then Drew Barrymore and Alyssa Milano who were the two previous stars in this franchise. While the others may have been bigger names at the time of the making of their movies they don't hold a candle in their roles to Jaime.
