Critical Rating: AA 1/2
While it’s a sure bet this will not be chosen “Flick of the 1984 Olympics,” this offbeat mixture of Misty Beethoven and Chariots of Fire does have its good moments. The sensuality and appeal of its female leads and novel plot are hampered by some sloppy writing, unspectacular sex scenes and wooden male stars.
Said plot concerns a jaded hooker who runs in her spare time. She makes an acquaintance while jogging – a woman’s track coach who winds up signing her for his team. Simultaneously, she is abused by her obnoxious pimp and tries to run away. In the lead role Shannon McCullough is convincing as both a call-girl and an athlete, while the buxom Bunny Bleu cuts a few fine figures as her “working associate.”
All the men in the film, however, look to be cut from the same California Blonde mold. And while this movie may be the first to offer “Reciprocal Oral Sex With The Aid Of Inversion Boots,” the other shots pale in comparison. Give this film a bronze medal. It made a good effort but faltered a bit in the stretch.
