  • Ecpect not only to suspend disbelief, but to throw it out the window. This contrived, confusing mess is given one point only for the performance of William Devane. Unfortunately he is killed off early, and what follows is total nonsense. The movie gets real talky, real fast, as any possibility of believability slips further and further away. Sure Michelle Phillips and Catherine Oxenberg are fun to look at, but that's about it, because the motivation behind this supposedly clever script is unbelievably weak. The ending is especially ridiculous, and the movie is just plain bad. ...................... - MERK

    Though it features unknown actors, "Rubdown" turned out to be a pretty watchable movie when I decided to view it one night. Michelle Phillips, of The Mamas and the Papas fame, is quite sexy in this film, despite her age. She has been somewhat successful in her transition from Rock and Roll to the small screen. "Rubdown" has a surprisingly strong storyline tightly fitted into a short running time,which makes for a fairly thrilling flick. Michelle Phillips is very attractive during the massage scene. In it she is shown only from her chest up, leaving the rest to the viewers' imagination. I found this understated photography rather erotic.

    Though you may have never heard of it, "Rubdown" is a dramatic tension-filled film.
