"I have no idea what was the point of making this move at all, so there is not much I can say.
I have to congratulate though, the marketing agent or whoever was behind the making of the cover, because it leads you to believe that this could be a somewhat sexy movie, with some "sexy" scene with Christina Applegate, well nothing like that....
If you want to see a fun movie with ther, rent or buy, the sweetest thing, possibly the unrated version."
Hmph? What? The movie's over? Did I fall asleep?

"Applegate's stripper-by-night/motel-laundress-by-day life spiral is apparently motivated by her troubled past. A past that includes a stern military father, a brother who killed himself on his 16th birthday, and a step-mother still living in the family's Southern mansion. Unfortunately these elements are only hinted at in Applegate's exposition, and the viewer is left to wonder what sort of childhood they add up to.The arc-free plot involves an Italian drifter, hired as the motel's handyman, who becomes smitten with the laundress. Unfortunately, Applegate's character has intimacy issues (or perhaps bi-polar disorder), and the couple embark on a series of push-me-pull-you encounters. There are plenty of content-free subplots - including porn films being shot at the motel, and a lesbian affair - none of which pay off. There's also a big helping of artistic lighting, framing and freewheeling camera work, none of which further the film.Applegate's short erotic dancing sequences are the sort that provide good copy (and a still) for the tape's packaging, but are not the sort of blockbuster performance one might expect in light of the turns made by Demi Moore and Elizabeth Berkeley. In fact, it's Applegate's dramatic scenes that show off her actual talent - acting. Too bad there's so little content for her to work with."
Neither very erotic or entertaining. . .

"Those who seek this video for hot action of Christina Applegate as a stripper will be disappointed with all but about two minutes of this film. It's a rather dour tale of a Southern girl from a rich home (Applegate) who runs away from her "evil stepmother" (what the exact problem is with the stepmom is never adequately explained). An Italian drifter happens along and they strike up a romance, although she is rather abivalent. The film is basically about the ins and outs of their relationship. There's very little humor and not a lot of sexual heat--the main message seems to be "life sucks, but it's all we have". Based on a short story by Heidi Hall ("The Magnifcent Rescue"), who also scripted the film. Perhaps the s story had more of a point."
Best film she's done since "Streets"

"As far as CA's films go, most have been rather..ehm..disapointing to say the least. She showed she COULD act in "Streets" and this is withoug doubt her best film since then. Great performace throughout, and if your a CA fan you HAVE to have this film, lots of sexy shots, guys won't be disapointed."
