Review

The first part of this so-called erotic thriller has got hints of that seductive, sexy quality which may have laid the basis for an interesting delve into the concept of relationship rut in general and swinging in particular. There's a truthfulness to the way our protagonist couple, played by Brandy Ledford and Cameron Daddo, start fiddling with the idea of meeting up with another couple in order to spice up their uneventful sex life. And there's also a well-directed segment with the four of them in steaming interplay in a luxury apartment. But before the steam has had time to settle, things quickly become weirder than Stephen Baldwin's gaze. His Jack Bauer turns out to be a cartoon character belonging as a villain in a second-rate superhero comic, with his wafer-thin motivation and parodic seductiveness. And George Roulston's editing is on an equal level. Only Ledford is able to maintain some sort of credibility in the midst of this B-movie mess.
