"well, I had originally bought this film because I am a hard core Degrassi fan, and in the show my favorite character would have to be Emma. As you can probably tell the "young woman" who plays Emma in Degrassi plays our lovely protagonist in the new poison ivy movie, Miriam Macdonald. I was not expecting much from her as an actress after seeing her in Sci-Fi channel's original movie "Sea Beast" but she exceeded my expectations in this film. I will warn you now there is a lot of sex in this movie, and there is some unneeded nudity as well when the ivy sorority in inducting new members. I'm not going to get into the plot because the one posted by Amazon was pretty near accurate
WARNING TO PARENTS: this is not the kind of movie you should buy for you daughter just because she likes Degrassi:The Next generation, because there is graphic sex scenes and pretty hard core violence"
There was a lot of straddling for no specific reason

"I was forced into watching this. For some reason, Greg Evigan, of "BJ and the Bear", and Catherine Hicks, of "Seventh Heaven" and "Star Trek IV" are in this movie. I learned that when women go to college, they spend alot of time going to boutiques and changing their hair color. As I was watching it, I noticed how cheerful the set design was, despite the fact that this movie is supposed to be suspenseful and full of ominous portent. The antagonist and the protagonist are both women, and the movie involved alot of changing of hairstyles, nail color, fashion accessories, hairstyles, patent leather belts, hairstyles, and so forth. Some of the hairstyles are so outrageous, they distract from the plot of the movie. The plot is very straightforward but includes a lot of gratuitous sensuality introduced in non-sequitor situations that makes the scenes rather comical. It wasn't intended to be comical, but that's how it turns out, so in this respect, the movie is very enjoyable. The performances are okay though many scenes seem out of place. It's sort of like a soap opera that has adult scenes played out in R+ rating, or a Harlequin Romance, where every personality must fit into a social stereotype. It's unintentionally upbeat and cheerful in mood despite it's intended purpose. Mystery Science Theatre 3000 would have a field day with this movie."
Good film. A good time killer (no pun intended)

"I have seen all the other poison ivy films and I have to say this one is my favorite. You're basic storyline is still the same like in all of the poison ivy films. Young naive girl meets up with sexy temptress who seduces her or her boyfriend or her father out of fun or the persuit of power and success. What attracted me to this film was of course, Miriam McDonald best known for playing Emma Nielson-Simpson on Degrassi The Next Generation - Season 6 The character she plays named Daisy reminds me a lot of her Emma character. Naive, sweet, head strong, and goal/school crazy. But unlike Emma Daisy is very easily fooled while Emma isn't going to believe everything she hears. It's hard to identify with her character until you met her rival Azalea who is everything she isn't. Power hungry, uses her body to get what she desires. All for an intership.. Like I said, if you liked the other three films you will like this one. I have to say once again hats off to Miriam McDonald for doing things in scenes you never see on Degrassi."
Essentially nothing more than Soft-Core pornagraphy

"The fourth installment in the poison ivy series, although it has little in common with the previous aside from name.
The main protagonist is Danielle "Daisy" Brooks played by Miriam Mcdonald, better known as Emma Nelson on Degrassi: the Next Generation. While the main antagonist is Azalea Berges best known as Icebook from the movie Little Giants. Yes they've both matured nicely.
There is only two essential male characters, Professor Andrew Graves and his son Blake Graves.
The basis plot is about how simple farm girl Daisy who is a straight A student gets a scholarship to a prodigious academy leaving behind her simple farm life and simple farm boyfriend.
Meanwhile Azela who is a high ranking member of the exclusive Ivys, essentially an all female mafia, is trying to get an internship with the academy. She is willing to do anything to get it even going as far as sleeping with Blake just to find out if there is any competition.
When she finds out Daisy got it she has her initiated into the society in order to take control of her. It's not long before Daisy realizes that she's a pawn in a much bigger game. I don't won't to spoil it, but the ending leaves much to be desired.
The character of Daisy is not well fleshed out. Very little is known about her and the death of her parents. Also at the beginning she has a boyfriend and yet she has no problem sleeping with Blake and on the first date. Even worse she's back with her boyfriend at the end.
Azela character is not well made out either, I mean sleeping with a guy just to get information.
Neither of the main characters plays much of a part, Blake is merely a plot device after his night with Daisy, and the professor plays an even less significant role.
There was also plenty of lose ends, what happened to the society, what about Daisy and Blake, what about Azela and Elizbeth, ordinarily this would mean sequel but most likely if there is another movie it will be with completely different characters and none of this will be acknowledged.
And if you didn't already know the DVD has five minutes of extra, explicit footage. Both Miriam and Shawna go completely topless in this:
The explicit scenes are as follows:
While making out with Blake she has her top removed to reveal her breasts, followed by a scene of having her breasts sucked and dry humping.
In order to seduce her professor Azela shows up in black lingerie before pulling her top down to reveal her breasts, followed by a scene similar to the first.
While making out with a guy she removes her dress and bra to reveal a full frontal shot of her breasts, followed by a few side shots of her breasts.
At the initiation ceremony, she along with two other girls has their robes removed to reveal a brief shot of her breasts, they are all then lie down and given a tattoo, and their breasts can all be seen again when they rise.
In addition she has two lesser explicit scenes, in one she is seen in her underwear and in the other she is seen wearing black lingerie.
Miriam seemed far less enthusiastic about being topless than Shawna. Both times Miriam is topless it is only brief, while Shawna's scenes last for over a minute, Shawna really seemed to be getting into it as well, guarantee this won't be her last time doing nudity
I personally believe that the nudity is merely a ruse to sell DVDs, really five minutes of nudity is no reason to buy a DVD. However if you are a fan of Miriam or Shawna or erotic thrillers in general, then you can give it a try."
