User Reviews

One of my favourite films.
18 March 2000 | by ProfessorPeachSee all my reviews

Okay, so it's not the most cinematically perfect film ever made but I think people can lose the point of watching movies these days. I like thought-provoking, or striking films as much as the next guy but there are some times you just want entertainment and the Poison Ivy films do that. I liked the first, didn't really go for the second but am happy with The New Seduction. Jaime Pressly looks fabulous and the plot is a bit contrived but heck, there have been a lot of far more stupid ideas that have cost ten times as much and featured A-list stars. It's good, honest, down to earth entertainment, but probably not a good date movie. You'll learn to love it.
