Sexy entertainment. Jaime worths the watch. Believe me.
4 March 2006 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

Thank you Cinemax for airing these kind of movies at midnight. "Poison Ivy 3" is a steamy sequel that no one can dislike. It offers you the best about the B-movie industry: great sex scenes, an easy plot that many people would like to experience, and the best of all, beautiful (I mean, BEAUTIFUL!) women.

The plot is similar to "Friend of the Family II" and "The Hand That Rocks the Craddle". This time the sexy nanny is the hot Jaime Pressly. The innocent victim is the also hot Megan Edwards.

I always try to be objective in my movie reviews but this time I can't. This movie shouldn't be commented for it's plot, score, direction, etc. No. This movie is all about Jaime. People can't ignore the fact that she has a DELICIOUS body to die for. I can't even describe how hot she is. Her face is very sexy but menacing at the same time (which helps a lot for her character). Her performance is great mainly because male viewers fantasize about her. Her sex scenes are great! Could've used more explicitly (even the uncut version) but still deliver.

Also, Megan Edwards is extremely sexy! Her beautiful and innocent face makes her more desirable because she has a spectacular hot body. Those legs, those eyes, that hips. MMMMH. I loved every scene where she walked in her mansion wearing that sexy mini skirt. Thank you Megan!

What else can I say?! Poison Ivy 3 is entertaining and steamy. One of those movies that you can't say that you love because it wouldn't be moral correctly. I don't care. I love the movie for it's hot women and sex scenes. Deserves a watch.
