What Hath "Pretty Woman" Wrought?
28 November 2010 | by BloodTheTelepathicDogSee all my reviews

Hooker Alexa (Christine Moore) is pursued by a playwright (Kirk Baily) who wants to tell a story about prostitution. He has conducted research on ladies-of-the-night and has his own ideas as to why they have gravitated toward such a sinful profession. But his prejudices offend Alexa, who he falls for--of course--while forcing Alexa to evaluate her life.

STORY $ (Very poor screenplay here. If Pretty Woman is in the Hall of Fame of filmmaking than Alexa is still toiling in the low minors. There are many social criticisms presented here, in that typical cultural left absence of logic evaluation. Alexa, who sleeps with a handful of guys, accuses her stay-at-home housewife sister of being a whore--selling herself to her husband. There isn't anything profound stated here--just warped philosophy).

ACTING: $$ (The acting isn't too bad, at least by the two leads. Despite his unkempt mullet, Kirk Baily does a fine job as Tony the playwright. Christine Moore, best known for her work in Roberta Findlay's horror films "Prime Evil" and "Lurkers," is quite good in the title role even if she has a poor script to work with. The supporting cast however, was very weak).

NUDITY: $$$$ (Plenty of it here--big shock, huh? We open with a shot of Ruth Collins taking off her robe, trying to seduce Tony. Christine Moore has couple topless scenes in bed and she is quite exquisitely put together, if you know what I mean. Other "actresses" take off their clothes during scenes of gratuitous occupational therapy).
