A Waste of a Good Cast in a Movie That Is Not a Comedy, Not a Drama and Not Erotic
Tony (Daniel Baldwinn) has a brothel with three gorgeous prostitutes that satisfy any fantasy from any costumer. Francesca (Julie Delpy) is addicted and spends all her money on drugs. Mimi (Georgina Cates) is religious and donates all her money to the church. Dolly (Pamela Gidley) is bisexual and saves all her money with the intention to raise US$ 57,000.00 and buy a restaurant. She lives with her girlfriend Wendy (Yancy Butler). The story ends in a party for an important politician.
"The Treat" is a film that wastes a good cast in a shallow screenplay without humor or drama despite alternating drama, romance and black humor. There is at least one mushy situation with the character of Julie Delpy. And of course Dolly will raise the money she needs. But even being conclusive, the story does not satisfy the viewer since it is not funny, not dramatic and not erotic since none of the actress shows their bodies. There is no scene with any of them naked. Only the beauty of Julie Delpy and Georgina Cates is not enough to support the plot. The front cover of the Brazilian VHS lists Valeria Golino as part of the cast, but I have not located her in the film. I looked also in the credits and in the IMDb cast and I believe this information is completely wrong. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "O Clube dos Prazeres" ("The Club of the Pleasure")
