Product Description

Poison Ivy - The New Seduction

Amazon.ca

Joel Silver (48 Hours, Diehard, The Matrix) has a theory about action movies--you need a good bang-up scene about every ten minutes. The people who made The New Seduction operate on the same principle, only instead of car chases and explosions, the curvaceous Jaime Pressly takes her clothes off and then, more likely than not, has sex with someone. If Seduction had been made 60 years ago at Warner Brothers, nobody would have gotten naked, but otherwise this gleefully trashy bit of film noir would have fit right in. The plot's a reworking of the original; this time, Ivy's sister Violet returns after 11 years to wreak havoc on the family that turned her mother (the family maid) out onto the street for sleeping with the man of the house. Pressly brings both a smoldering energy and sense of fun to her very-bad-girl part. As the lonely daughter who was Violet's best friend, Megan Edwards is both appealing and strong enough to avoid being simpy. While this movie lacks the relative subtlety of the original, it's a whole lot more fun than the morose first sequel, Poison Ivy 2. --Geof Miller

Picked up a used copy of this DVD and didn't look carefully--I fully assumed I was taking home the original "Poison Ivy" with Drew Barrymore and Sara Edwards. As I now know, this edition of "Poison Ivy" brings the Violet character (lovely Jaime Pressly) into the lives of banker Michael Des Barres (Ivan) and tennis star Megan Edwards (Joy), who's eager to please a hard to please dad. Violet is returning to her childhood home a decade into the future and carries considerable baggage from her past--which is intertwined with the aforementioned characters.
Although the first "Poison Ivy" wasn't exactly "Citizen Kane," it did feature fine performances by Barrymore and Edwards. Not in this bomb, however. There's nothing mysterious whatsoever about this flick--it's clear that Pressly is on her way to seducing and/or killing each member of the family. This is supposed to be an erotic flick, but because there's nothing remotely sexy in Violet's mannerisms and actions, the sex scenes are ice cold. Eventually the maid gets wise to Violet, but it's too late for her. Ditto for Joy's boyfriend (whom Violet has already seduced). Ditto, eventually, for Ivan (whom Violet has already seduced). But what's truly ridiculous is the ending. There's no point in going into it--suffice it to say that it makes no sense whatsoever and completely sinks this wretched film.
There are rabid five-star reviews for this film, and I have no doubt that most of them came from the enjoyment of Jaime Pressly in the buff. I understand--but it is possible, guys, to make good movies with steamy sex scenes. Takes good directing and acting. This has neither.
Oh, yeah--if it's worth anything to you, you can watch both the R-rated version and the unrated version on this DVD.

You know how you have those movies where the woman is trying to seduce everyone but you look at her and say "Come on, I would have resisted! Not this one partner, I don't think anyone could look at this woman long enough with out charging! Jaime Pressly (Violet) was a perfect beauty with an extreme sexy voice and smurk! Gee Wizz...she was the best I have ever seen in any of these so called seduction flicks! There are a billion of them at the video houses but this one is supreme over all. The pool scene was amazing and Jamie's body is so so natural and flawless! I can understand how she succeeded in this film with her rampage! I think anyone would have fell for this web of deceit. The big downfall to this movie is the rushed ending. If it wasn't for the ending I would have given it *****'s. The ending was disappointing because the movie trotted so well. In all honesty I think they were running out of film and money. Jaimie's character was so slick and beguiling and in control. Then all of a sudden she just lost it and control of everything and it didn't flow in my opinion. Noone that slick and smart just gets sloppy without some reasonable explanation. But all the way up to the last 15mins of the movie it is an exotic masterpiece! If you are looking for other great Seduction movies with a Convincing in appearance female? Check for Lost Highway and Lifeforce! I don't think there will ever be another (Grade C) seductress film this Perfect in appearance or performance. Why? because beauty is in "The Eye of the Beholder" and this is a Beauty that I think everyone can agree with Male or Female. Watch out for Violet ...she will intrique you!

Format: DVD
Back in the mid 90's, Thursday nights were the official start of the weekend, and we would invariably start with a "group acceptable" movie and a few cocktails at someone's apartment, before invariably heading out into the night. I put "group acceptable" in parenthesis, because "acceptable" was a bit of a misnomer; the only movies that everyone agreed upon were non-plot driven flicks with semi-starlets, who, thankfully enough, were kind enough to appear sans clothing at various times during the course of the show. This movie was one of the last we saw before switching over to Antiques Roadshow (don't ask), and eventually disbanding. I decided to review this movie because now, 4 short years later, I have become fairly domesticated (as has everyone else), and drinking on Thursday's has become a fond, albeit hazy memory from the past, and I want to do my part to ensure that this great piece of cinema is not dismissed as just one more piece of exploitative, late-night HBO soft-core filler that it appears to be.

To hold this movie to the same standards as a regular movie would be a disservice to it, and I think it should be rated against other movies of its genre:

1) Nudity - 5 Stars - What can I say except for bravo. Veteran B-movie writer Karen Kelly has managed to create a plot where nude scenes seamlessly flow into each other, and actually kind of make sense. One constantly expects Ron Jeremy to make a quick cameo; the quality is that good.

2) Starlet Quality - 1 Star- At the time of this movie Jaime Pressly had only one previous acting role (playing the pre-teen American girl in Mercenary), and the excitement factor knowing she was soon to be nude was just not there.
