Movie: Vinyl Dolls
Director: Buddy Beale
Critic rating: 3
Tiffany Shepis, Ander Paige (here credited as Ander Page), Jezebelle Bond, and Beverly Lynne are the "Vinyl Dolls," an all-female rock outfit prone to singing rather generic pop tunes about relationships and success. Despite their bland music, they're poised for the top of the charts, if they can keep their band together!
Vinyl Dolls never found its way to Oscar contention, but it is rather nifty to see actresses like Page, Bond, and Lynne show they have more acting chops than just feigning the heights of ecstasy. While the plot is pretty forgettable, Shepis manages to make her rebel lead-singer gal likable despite a fairly shady past that has her tied to a shady drug peddler. Her story is the primary, while each of the other "Vinyl Dolls" gets a little subplot of their own to ride out the movie's hour-and-a-half running time. As one would expect with such a cast, clothing is usually (and thankfully) left at the door!
Filled with a nice helping of well-shot sex scenes, this is another decent offering from Indigo Entertainment that's geared toward couples looking to spice up an evening with a little risqué movie-watching. Some of the scenes feel rather near porn-quality (specifically Ander Paige's first coupling and Kelsey's car cavorting), but the lighting, shooting sound and editing are all top-rate. Such a shame they couldn't have given these gals better songs to sing!
