Movie Reviews

Stick a Forke in this one 'cause it's not Wuhrer done
ronster22 | VA | 03/30/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, when I saw the trailer I couldn't wait to see it. Although I'm a fan of WINGS, I really like the idea of two hot women together. Now that I've seen the movie, I'm more convinced than ever that I should be making these movies instead of the jabones who are making them now. The plot was decent, but it was erratic, and uneven. Too often I felt like the filmmaker strung clips together. Once the movie got going, I sort of got into it. Kari Wuhrer is as beautiful as she is convincing in the role of the psycho. When the two did finally meet, it was too short, too R, and not steamy enough. I mean, come on. You have two gorgeous actresses--let them act! Overall, the movie was a letdown. It could have, and should have been so much more."

"This movie was supposed to be a thriller, but frankly, it wasn't very thrilling. Keri Wuhrer and Farrah Forke are gorgeous actresses, but don't buy this movie if you just want to see them.The first half moved very slow, then when things got interesting in the middle, it suddenly wound down its course to the inevitable end."
Cheesy sexploitation flick.

"Every so often, I like to rummage through the minor titles to see if I can find a sleeper. Unfortunately, this one missed the mark. This is a rather cheesy production featuring two attractive actresses in an obvious attempt at sexploitation for commercial gain.Kate (Kari Wuhrer) is obsessed with Sara (Farrah Forke), her best friend from high school and college. They were going to open a business together in their hometown of New Orleans until Sara went to California and met a guy. So, Kate goes to visit her plotting to break them up. What follows is a twisted tale and lesbian seduction, blackmail and murder, just to name a few of the evils Kate employs to keep Sara close to her.The writing and direction by Eric Delebarre in his first feature film was second rate. The plot is thin and contrived, stretching credulity repeatedly. This has B movie stamped all over it; poor sound and cinematography and a general low budget look.The hook here was the lesbian seduction scene where Kate gets Sara stoned and then ravishes her. This was obviously a male fantasy lesbian scene, where Sara is taken by a predator rather than having sex by mutual consent. From that standpoint, most male viewers will likely be disappointed since it shows little more than kissing and groping with everything covered.The acting was mediocre to poor. Kari Wuhrer lacked subtlety and duplicity as the antagonist. Her body language and sarcastic delivery made her motives so obvious that it was impossible to believe that the other characters wouldn't have noticed sooner. Farrah Forke was better than Wuhrer. She gave a very sincere presentation of her character, albeit overly naïve. Her unaffectedness and spontaneity made the romance scenes with her boyfriend work well. The rest of the acting was mundane.This film has little to recommend it. I rated it a 3/10. The story was weak and the filmmaking weaker. For viewers looking for sexual stimulation, there are plenty of superior alternatives"
Wuhrer Not Enough to Salvage "Addiction"

"B-grade erotic thrillers usually have little to recommend them. As a general rule, they start bad, and stay bad. It is no small feat to have something commendable in one of this movies. "Kate's Addiction" has several things going for it, which is well ahead of the curve. To start with, Kari Wuhrer, who plays the title character, is a superstar waiting to happen. She is quite good throughout the movie, giving every ounce of her acting skill to this character, even though it is a textbook part. I also want to give special notice to the first scenes in this movie. These first few minutes are very good, even heartening. The opening scene of Kate watching the video of herself and her college roommate (played by Farrah Forke; not bad at all here) on graduation day (although who shot the video is a mystery), then reaching out to touch the screen, full of longing, shows Wuhrer's real potential. The next scene shows the film's potential, as Kate meets with a private investigator about the woman and the new fiancee that stands between Kate and her intended. This scene shows what could have been: a clever, sexy potboiler about obsession. Unfortunately, there's not much more imagination left in this movie. As soon as I saw Wuhrer packing a pistol into her suitcase, my heart sank. I knew where we were headed before the movie did. We're presented the standard type of activity in erotic thrillers: brutal killings and general mayhem, punctuated by sex scenes. The supposed twist here is that the sex is between two women, but that's sort of the problem, too. That's the hook for the movie, and once it's happened--in a genuinely erotic scene that is all the sexier for the expression of joy on Wuhrer's face--the movie doesn't know what to do with itself, and fades away, which is too bad, because in those all-too-brief early scenes, and in Wuhrer's electric performance, you can almost see what this movie could have been."
