Storyline

Las Vegas stripper, Penny Slot (Rena Riffel), sets out on an adventure to become the star dancer on a dance television show. With stars in her eyes, she tries to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow but instead finds danger in a town more wicked than Sin City. Romance then leads her down a path towards her dream of stardom, fame, and fortune. But danger lurks at every twist and turn while Penny Slot becomes lured by a dangerous love triangle full of temptation and seduction. Penny's longtime fiancé/boyfriend, James "Jimmy" Smith ('Glenn Plummer') warns her that she needs formal technique training if she wants to be taken seriously as a real dancer, so Penny heeds his advice and sets out to take ballet classes and practices her pique turns. But, she must pay the price. And there is a price to pay for success, sacrifices to be made at every imaginable level, and it all comes down to... How bad do you want it? Written by Film Company

I was more entertained by the reviews!
2 December 2018 | by retort2See all my reviews

Although only experiencing 3 minutes of this film because my husband had to show me what he considered the worst film he ever saw (and he gave up after 15 minutes), I could not wait to jump on IMDb to learn a little more about how this catastrophie occurred and who was responsible.

These are THE BEST user reviews I have ever read! I spent more time reading the reviews then watching the movie! They are hilarious! My favorite is the one where the reviewer stated that it made one wish they were blind and deaf!

There was one review that simply seemed mean spirited towards the leading actress and I don't think was necessary, the rest were so good at saying how bad it was it made me consider turning it back on ... and then come to my senses and not.
