Your rationalization for Skinemax
I have a girlfriend who likes Sidney Sheldon stuff and she forced me to sit through it. She'd also forced me to sit through Poor Little Rich Girl, which wasn't that bad, and since this had the same director and screenwriter I thought I could make it through it. Boy, was I wrong. Lori Loughlin's character gets raped in a porno film, and then never does anything about it. Why? Doesn't this film want conflict? Instead it focuses on Loughlin's conflict with her husband's agent, Christopher Plummer, who is so eager to ooze spite that it actually does seem to come out of his ears. Loughlin's hubby, years after her porno rape, is a rich comedian played by Perry King. I don't know what Perry King was thinking, but his facial contortions in attempting to convey his character's suffering from his stroke had to be intentionally hilarious - perhaps a message to his agent who got him into this thing and anyone dumb enough to be watching it. One of the characters, Loughlin's rich former fiancee, is as clueless as any man ever portrayed on screen in any film. Ever.
Any man who is ever told by a woman that T&A films are idiotic and demeaning can source this as proof that there is something beneath them made especially for women.
