Scandal: Passion and Romance
|Scandal - Passion and Romance (1997) is a very
soft soft-core that IMDB has not as yet discovered.
| Based on the fact
that Amazon is taking orders on other Passion and Romance titles, I
would guess it to be a made for cable, and part of a series, except
that an Irish company co-produced.
|Nudity is the
reason the film exists. See the main body of commentary.
| The inconsequential plot involves a
governors race in Georgia. The incumbent expects an easy victory. His
daughter (Gabriella Hall) announces her engagement to a press
photographer. Then in comes a couple of scam artists. He seduces the
governors daughter, and bilks her out of a huge cash donation,
supposedly for charity. His wife, Kira Lee, is even busier. She
seduces and photographs the fiancee, then blackmails him, seduces
someone with a bad French accent in the beginning of the film just to
steal his wallet, gets a hooker (Tracie May) to seduce the Governor so
she can tape and blackmail him, and uses the single worst fake accent
I have ever heard, It is about half Cockney and have Faux Southern.
All three women show breasts and buns in numerous sex scenes, some
fairly steamy, and Kira shows pubic hair near the end. The plot barely
provides a bridge between sex scenes, and the acting was -pretty much
absent. There was a lot of exposure, although no genitalia. I will
give it a C-.

from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this
description, as a soft core, this film is a C-.
