Storyline

Four hip women get ready for Friday night in LA: they dress, talk about sex, and hit a bar before meeting four men at a rave. The men prepare by talking about sex and drinking. Rick and Jean, two attorneys, have set up the evening, connect at the club, and have a good time. The pairings of Shawn, Trent, Whitney and Emma are more serendipitous. But it's Mike and Sara's night that has serious repercussions: he's an NFL player, loud, swaggering; she's a party animal who drinks a lot early that evening. At 4 AM, she appears at Jean's, disheveled and bruised, saying Mike raped her. Arrested, he says he's innocent, and in flashbacks we see both sides of the story. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

One of 1999's worst
24 October 1999 | by ChaseMcSee all my reviews

The tagline for Body Shots states that it defines the 90's generation. I certainly hope not. Such a statement would assume that the members of my generation are nothing more than uneducated, alcoholic rapists who only think about sex and booze. Each of the eight characters are completely one-dimensional with absolutely no redeeming qualities among the lot of them. The trailer hyped the movie as the next Graduate or Breakfast Club, hoping to draw comparisons to the far superior films. No, no...this movie has an uncanny resemblance to Showtime's worst B-grade tripe. Poorly written, poorly acted, and poorly directed, Body Shots will no doubt find itself among Ishtar and Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot as one of the worst movies of the century.
