Considering that the posters and paper ads are boldly proclaiming Zalman King's name, he appears to be a hotshot director on the soft-porn circuit. Well, he atleast appears to have a sense of style. The name of the movie firmly belongs to it and the credits are in place. But the movie is still no great shakes.
April (Sherilyn Fenn) is engaged to Douglas (Louise Tyson). Two weeks before their marriage, a carnival arrives in town with a hunk, Perry (Richard Tyson), accompanying it. April is attracted to him, much against her wish. They soon end up in bed, and when the affair turns a bit sour, they exchange the choicest of expletives. In short, a love and hate affair.
Perry turns up at the wedding as a worker, and the two are reunited. But there is the prestige of April's family to take care of. She has a formidable pedigree, as explained by her grandmother. The matter has to be resolved, and it is done so in an intriguing manner.
The production values are decent, and they are the sole reason for the two star rating. The performances are barely passable. The intrigue is well underlined with a haunting background score. The sleaze is predictably missing.
Watching this movie won't kill you, but it isn't worth much, either.
