Fuck I love Zalman King so much! He is 100% committed to the ridiculous, every frame drips with beautiful, dreamy absurdity. Hot repressed Southern belles banging muscled circus bros in hyper-stylized sex sequences while saxophones blare in the background... how can anyone hate this?
The 1980s sucked in terms of movies. Except if you were a teenage boy. This one is pretty tame and predictable. It reflects the times which were about materialism, greed, working out, bimbos and himbos, and shower scenes. The bad guys were the rich people. And it had Kristy McNichol nude, which was a bit uncomfortable. This also might be near the peak of Sherilyn Fenn's beauty.
