The plot: an architect finds it difficult to find a replacement for his deceased wife and unknowingly falls for his son's girlfriend. (*YAWN*)
There is absolutely not one frame of film that isn't completely wasted in this incredibly awful piece of soft-core celluloid dung. The performances are laughable, the script is virtually nonexistent and trite, and the directing is worse than my grandmother's shaky camcorder work at a family reunion.
On the bright side, at least you won't come away thinking anyone's performance was wasted. Playboy bunnies abound, strangely ditching cute guys for superficial geezers like Jay and other portly rednecks in a local bar up in the hills. Every outfit is skimpy, every woman is out of a girlie mag, and every body part is paid for.
The only satisfying ending would have been if all of the actors and all associated in the making of this vile trash would have formed a single-file line and all took a jump off lover's leap. Now THAT would have been something I could have heated up popcorn for and spent the evening watching.
