An Astonishingly Bad Film: Destined for Cult Status
Gregory Mast | San Jose, CA | 08/02/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This relic from 1980, a soft porn disco melodrama about hookers working a seedy British nightclub, is destined for cult status. Helen Mirren portrays a prostitute raising a small child, with no cliché left unmolested. Standard soap opera stuff, sprinkled with dreadful "musical" numbers at the night club, containing just enough nudity to make the enterprise bearable. This film is full of unintentional laughs, many from the ultra-cheesy fashions and conventions of the era. However, it is almost worth watching just to hear Helen Mirren repeat the line, "Make love to me!" at random intervals whenever some gratuitous nudity is in order.

The quality of the DVD transfer is barely adequate and is presented in full screen format. For fans of Helen Mirren and bad films only, this film is a rare instance where the two converge.
