"Wild Orchid"

Wild Orchid (1990) proves once again that Zapman King knows a thing or two about making erotica. The story is not entirely uninteresting, the photography is breathtaking, and there is plenty of nudity. Besides the full frontal from Carré Otis and breasts from Assumpta Serna mentioned by Scoopy last night, there is also full frontal from Anya Sartor in a very hot scene where she is screwing wildly in the old hotel while Otis watches, and a host of exposure scattered throughout the film by Carnival revelers.

The ending scene between Otis and Mickey Rourke is also very hot. Scoopy rated it properly as a C+. Take away the nudity and it wouldn't be worth watching, and it has nearly no crossover appeal, but, as erotic entertainment, it is one of the better ones, and will appeal to women as well as men.

    "Fatal Attraction"

    Fatal Attraction (1987) caused a huge stir when it was released, with most of the complaints coming from the women's movement. They saw the Glenn Close character as symbolic of all single professional women, and found it a very demeaning portrayal. With all of the hype, I was disappointed when I saw it the first time. This time, without all the build-up, I found it to be a very good thriller. Michael Douglas, married with one daughter, and rising attorney in a large firm, has a weekend fling with Glenn Close. Little does he realize how demented she is, and she makes his life a real hell. Douglas has the ability to play "everyman," flawed but nonetheless likable. This role was a real departure for Close, who had never had a role where she had to be sexy and out of control, but she nailed it.

    I wish I could say that the DVD was as good as the movie itself. It is fine in the special features department, with interviews, commentary, and the original ending, but the transfer itself is dark, undersaturated and grainy, and full of color noise when you brighten. Close shows breasts and buns in two or three sex scenes. IMDB readers say 6.6 of 10. Ebert mostly liked the film, but marked it down to 2 1/2 stars because he thought the ending was a total cop-out. I admired two things about it. The first was the fact that the effect of one weekend of indiscretion was felt by everyone in the story. Guilt, of course, belonged to Close and Douglas, but everyone ending up a victim. The other thing I admired was the direction and editing.

    Let me give one example. Douglas and Close have dinner together, and end up in her apartment. He mounts her at the kitchen sink, water running, and exposes her breasts, showing the urgency of their need. Then, with her legs around him, he tries to carry her to the bed with his pants around his ankles. The humor here lets the audience take a needed breath. We see them remove more clothes, then cut to a coffee pot percolating, then a slowly rotating ceiling fan, then pan down to them next to each other dripping in sweat. No risk of an X rating, a very hot scene, and none of the monotony of most extended sex scenes in films. The entire 119 minutes was cut with an economy that kept the story moving. This is somewhere between a high C+ and a low B-.

    Charlie's French Nudity site is updated.


    The Deep End is the thriller in which Tilda Swinton tries to cover up the death of her son's gay lover, then gets blackmailed by some other guys. The strange thing about the plot is that the murder itself is a McGuffin! First, there is no murder. She covers it up because she thinks her son did it, but it was just an accident! Second, without the "murder", the completely unrelated blackmail plot doesn't work. The blackmailer comes to her with a film of her son having sex with the dead guy. Now if someone comes to you and says, "give me fifty grand or we'll reveal your son to be a homosexual", you say so what and call the police. But if someone says, "we'll reveal your son to be a homosexual murderer", then you think about paying up. So she pays up, or tries to, because even thought the blackmailers never sad that, she thinks her son murdered the guy he's having sex with on the tape. But - and here's the strange thing - the blackmailers don't know that she or her son are involved in the murder1 They're just really stupid blackmailers! Frankly, I thought this movie way Way-a-a-y overrated by the critics. It is a pretty good Hitchcock clone with some tension in the moment, but the IMDB score of 7.0 - good but not great - was much more sensible than the lavish critical kudos. Frankly, Tilda's single-note performance was also overrated, and her American accent often faltered on her. She is a great actress, but this was nothin' special.

    Desperate Hours is just a really bad movie in which neither the director nor the actors employed any subtlety or restraint at any time. It looked like the final of the Bill Shatner memorial overacting contest. Mickey Rourke plays a genius killer, and shows his high IQ by raising his eyebrows pompously and looking down his nose, ala William F Buckley, Jr. Anthony Hopkins plays a kindly, suburban American dad. And if you believe that, we also have Lindsay Crouse in a performance which we should have nominated for the worst performance ever from a female with a major part in a major film (I wasn't aware of it when we did our poll). She wasn't as bad as Kim Darby in True Grit or Sofia Coppola or Lily Tomlin in Moment by Moment, but she was a contender. Playing an FBI agent, she did a perfect impersonation of what Foghorn Leghorn would sound like if he were one of those castrati. Anthony Hopkins turned in a bellowing, Shakespearian, overacting performance that would have embarrassed Richard Burton. In fact, compared to Hopkins in this film, Burton was a master of subtlety in The Exorcist 2.

    Believe it or not, this film was directed by Michael Cimino. No wonder the guy can't get the bankroll for a decent film. Every time he gets another chance, he comes up with something like this. Complete crap.

    • Kelly Lynch whipped 'em in three different scenes! I don't really like her chest, which looks artificial, but this lady has some great legs!! (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)


    I didn't much like Indecent Proposal either, but it seemed like To Kill a Mockingbird compared to Desperate Hours. This is the film where ultra zillionaire Bob Redford offers a struggling couple a million bucks if he can sleep with the wife. I guess I'm too amoral to relate to it. If Elya got that offer. I'd say "make sure to get extra if he wants anything not in the contract, and make sure he likes it, so he's dying for more and we can charge him double the next time"

    And what's the big deal about demi's dilemma. A million bucks to spend the night with Bob Redford? Change the billionaire to Pete Postlethwaite or Abe Vigoda, and let's see if she gets her ass in that bed.

    Naughty Gossip:

    From correspondent Wayne Davis

    Friends of troubled singer BRITNEY SPEARS fear she is drowning her sorrows over her split from JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE in booze.   British newspaper the DAILY STAR quotes several friends of the star, who was messily dumped by the 'N SYNC singer last month  (MAR02), voicing their concerns over the star's alleged increased  alcohol consumption to mask her emotional pain. One says, "Britney is on a slippery slope. Everything in her personal life is centred around boozing.  "If she doesn't take control, she could end up like other stars
    who make it big when they are too young." Another adds, "She has got into trouble before for drinking under age. But she's crossed into the danger zone." An eyewitness to Britney's recent trip with friends to Miami, America noted, "The only time she forgot about Justin was when she popped the champagne cork." (CPT/WNTST/ES)

    Actor BILLY BALDWIN has blasted his former sister-in-law KIM BASINGER for giving his brother ALEC a bad name.  In an exclusive interview with American tabloid NATIONAL ENQUIRER, the BACKDRAFT star, 39, says he's tired of the bad press his brother's getting, and is keen to set the record straight.   He says, "I'm fed up with the bashing my big brother is taking. It's all 'Kim Basinger the saint' and 'Alec Baldwin the bully'. It's not fair and it's not true. Kim is a black widow spider. She's a nutcase."  Bitter Baldwin asked to meet a reporter from the tabloid in Los Angeles days after news of his brother's divorce settlement were leaked to the press earlier this month (APR02).  And, though he knew his comments would upset Alec, Billy was determined to tell the world about his terrible ex-sister-in-law.  He adds, "Kim's side always gets out there, making Alec look like the bad guy. And the Baldwins have said nothing. We've taken the 'high road'. It's time for me to defend my big brother.  "KIM'S A CONTROL FREAK. SHE'S BIPOLAR. SHE HAS MULTIPLE
    PERSONALITIES. SHE HAS A LOT OF MENTAL PROBLEMS. SHE'S A NEUROTIC MESS. THERE'S SOME DEFECT IN HER BRAIN CHEMISTRY." Baldwin is particularly annoyed by comments Basinger has made, claiming his brother beat her during their seven-year marriage.  He says, "Alec denies ever striking her. Is my brother a saint? No. Is he volatile? Yes. But he is not a wife-beater.   "I think what may have happened is that Kim may have taken a run at Alec during a fight and he may have put his arm up to protect  himself - or put her off. But that's not beating your wife." (KL/NE/CPT)

    Beautiful actress CAMERON DIAZ deals with the depressing effects of the aging process by making fun of the issue.  The stunning blond, who regularly features in lists of the world's most beautiful women, says gravity has just as much of an effect on her body as it does on everyone else.  But Cameron, 28 says she never gets upset about it - though that doesn't mean she's ruled out the possibility of plastic surgery later on in life. The VANILLA SKY star says, "I've been noticing gravity since I was very young. It's quite amazing actually.   "I actually like waking up in the morning and chasing my (chest) around my back.  "If you didn't like it, you could cut yourself and put something inside your body and sew it (up), and that would make you feel a lot better about yourself. Maybe one day I'll try that."   But the film funnywoman knows the best way to deal with the aging process is simple: laugh at it.   She adds, "Nobody really wants to be a piece of fruit that starts off beautiful and then shrivels up and disappears, but that's what's going to happen.  "We're all going to die - so why not make fun of it and have some fun while you're doing it?" (MCM/WNWDN)

    Sexy BUFFY star ALYSON HANNIGAN loves having wild kinky sex in dangerous places.  The 28-year-old actress has bonked while driving and even on a pool table and now dreams of joining the mile-high club.  The stunner says, "The wildest place I ever had sex was while driving. That was good. And it was a stick shift so it was kind of difficult. We had to maneuver. We had to figure it out. One steers, one does the stick shift and the gas pedal. It wasn't like real sex. It was more like, come on, quick."   She adds, "I've heard that some airlines are going to start putting cabins in some planes for long flights to London and Australia. The mile-high club is going to have some new members." (HLP/WNTSP/ES)

    An excellent gallery images of the French actress. Several with nudity, all very artsy.

    By the way, after reading the review that Pat Reeder sent us yesterday I did a little research. This movie was directed by the same mastermind that directed both "Cruel Intentions" movies and penned the mega-lame, straight to video, Jane March flick "Provocateur". So if your date insists on dragging you to see this...fair warning, my Magic 8 Ball says "All signs point to suck".

    From our friends at The Titty Channel
    While rummaging through a pile of old magazines, they found these pictures of a then 18 year old Kelly Brook wearing some rather transparent underwear.

    Links #1 and #2 feature see-thru pube views!
    Link #3 shows acres of cleavage!
    Link #4 is a fully nude pose, but all of the really cool parts are just out of sight.

    Sandra Bullock No nudity of course, but this was just too much of a classic moment in her career to pass up. From one of her very first roles in "Bionic Showdown: The Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman" (1989)!!! Bullock played one of the new breed of Bionic people and of course had to show off the bionic bod by wearing a skimpy leotard. A great find by nmd!

    MGM OKs Parody of Bond Film
    Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - MGM has agreed to allow New Line Cinema to parody its James Bond film "Goldfinger" in the title of the new "Austin Powers" sequel.

    In January, MGM successfully petitioned the Motion Picture Association of America to ban the suggestive name of the summer comedy "Austin Powers in Goldmember," saying it infringed on the title of its 1964 Bond thriller.

    Both studios reached an agreement Thursday to allow the title.

    Part of the deal stipulated that "any future titles that may be construed as parodies of James Bond titles will be subject to MGM's approval," according to a joint statement from the studios.

    New Line's 1999 sequel "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me," was a parody of the 1977 Bond film "The Spy Who Loved Me."

    The Hollywood trade publication Variety reported Tuesday that MGM was negotiating to place an ad for the upcoming Bond adventure "Die Another Day" before the "Austin Powers" film and New Line's "Lord of the Rings" film. Both studios, however, refused to confirm whether that was part of the final agreement.

    "Austin Powers in Goldmember" debuts July 26. It stars Mike Myers as a toothy, flower-child secret agent and co-stars Destiny's Child singer Beyonce Knowles as his lover, Foxy Cleopatra. Myers also plays several bad guys, including hairless schemer Dr. Evil and the new villain, Goldmember.
