Fun, Sexy, Engaging
26 August 2017 | by l-70607See all my reviews

This film is fun. You laugh, you get angry and you enjoy the show (literally, there is one!) This film is sexy. Who doesn't like girls in mini skirts? Well, OK a few do not for legitimate reasons, but most men do. Sex and the human body is natural, primordial and eternal and this film gives you eye candy sweetness.

This film is engaging. You are interested in the characters, the actresses take on their personas well and the plot moves along quickly.
