Shhh! Don’t tell the executives at Paramount Pictures, but Fleshdance Fever is a better picture than its inspirational namesake. Like Flashdance (the original), Fever focuses on the lives of the employees of a seedy dance club. What makes Fever a better film is that it doesn’t try to intrigue its audience with characters who are boring. These characters are, excuse the pun, fleshed out. They act logically, and the sex scenes seem like a natural extension of the story.
What makes Fever worthy of a high rating is the hot methods producer/director Alex Robbins uses to raise the temperature. For example, he switches back and forth between two concurring hotspots of sizzling action. In the best individual sex scene Eric Edwards and Herschel Savage pull a tag-team on an anxious showgirl.
Who wants to see Jennifer Beals when the alternative is a wireless, remote control vibrator that wreaks comedic havoc as it goes haywire? Here’s a hot tip: catch this Fever!
