Critical Rating: AA
This is a sort of integrated star vehicle for Sahara, a black beauty with more than enough stuff to support the weight of a feature on her slim shoulders. But not when the feature is this poorly directed and scripted.
The story has Sahara as an unemployed nurse trying desperately to get another job, but finding nothing but come-ons from the medical profession. Eventually she succumbs to these come-ons, but it's never really clear whether she's been corrupted by the system, or was a slut from way back when. Sahara's character is written as an erratic and erotic schizoid: one moment she's having oral sex with a total stranger in her car in broad daylight (he jumped in when she stopped at a stop sign); the next, she's watching a couple get it on as a form of therapy (for them). She wants to join in, but restrains herself. Why? The script is too confused to figure it out. The direction isn't much better, with intermittent shots of Sahara driving, parking and walking to and from her car. Add to this a lot of shadowy lighting and you've got less than mediocrity.
On the plus side, Sahara is passable as an actress, and her natural sensuality makes her worth watching even when her character is quite inane. Another weight consideration is Trinity Loren, a voluptuous blonde counterpoint to Sarhara's lithe African beauty. When this pair is on camera together you sit up and take notice. Their lesbian scene, despite its poor editing, goes high up on the heat scale. It's too bad nothing else here even comes close.
