Our idea of Heaven: Nine rockin' anal scenes! Lanny is over-the-top hot. Paul Thomas is at his "most awarded" best. Hillary Scott is as nasty as they come...and boy do they come. And the word-of-mouth on this big-budget, multi-location thriller is off the charts. Look for it at awards time... but look at it right now first. You'll think you died and went to Heaven.
A strip club provides the backdrop for this twisted mob tale featuring Hillary Scott in the title role as a dangerous exotic dancer.
Director Paul Thomas makes the most of Scott’s considerable talent, as she fucks every main character before it’s over. The 2007 AVN Female Performer of the Year displays an onscreen magnetism that includes both acting chops and aggressive sex. She does anal in every encounter, all of which advance the multi-layered story. Her sexual exploits here are rivaled only by Vivid Girl Lanny Barby, who plays a cunning dancer named “Chantel” who is out for revenge by the movie’s climax.
When Heaven shows up to audition one afternoon with seemingly innocent intentions, nothing but drama ensues for the wise guys that run the club. She becomes involved with club manager “Zo,” wonderfully played by Tommy Gunn, and we watch their relationship unfold in a tightly edited montage of passionate fucking. Meanwhile, Zo’s tough-talking mentor “Tony” (Tom Byron) is banging Chantel. When Chantel decides to seduce Zo and photographs it, Heaven finds out and things get complicated.
But Zo also has a gambling problem that overshadows his girl trouble. It’s because of his debts that Tony gives him orders to take out their corrupt boss “Teddy” (Herschel Savage), who is “in the way.” Even though Teddy has also drugged and taken advantage of Heaven, the introspective Zo grapples with the prospect of murder. By the time he musters the nerve to tough out the job there is also a hit out on him. Heaven seeks comfort from Tony by the unexpected closing sequence when Thomas unveils a final surprise.
Scott, Gunn and Byron each showcase their range with memorable performances in a surefire contender for yearly honors.
