Ouch!
26 August 2014 | by REnninga1See all my reviews

This film's failure to entertain rests in writer/director Nathalie Delon's choices. She assembled a cast of young and desirable female beauties which would make most any healthy male salivate like Pavlov's dog (Joanna Pacula, Julianne Phillips, Laura Mansky, Aïna Walle, Caroline Ducrocq and others), but then attempts to rely on her thin and totally unbelievable storyline and screenplay, sophomoric direction and pedestrian cinematography to attempt to eek-out a bona-fide hour and a half of entertainment. Ouch! This one was actually painful to watch.

Delon had all the necessary ingredients at her disposal for creating a good 'Erotic Light Drama' which would have run on late night cable for decades, but instead she tried for 'Romantic Comedy', and completely failed. All she needed to do was eliminate about 1/2 of the dialog, and remove 3/4 of the clothing.

She opted for having her delicious female characters talk, rather than having them cavorting and walking around 'nekkid'. Big mistake! This 93-minute film could have been salvaged with about 80 minutes of purely gratuitous sex and nudity, and about 13 minutes of plot and dialog to tie the nudity and sex scenes together. How sad. Such a waste of gorgeous, umm, ... 'talent'.

I score this one "1 star" (awful), for its wasted potential.
