Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

Ghastly piece of soft-core porn from Zalman King, the trashmaster behind the Red Shoe Diaries series. Carré Otis plays a lawyer who courts trouble when she falls for earring-wearing, super-bronzed Mickey Rourke during the carnival celebrations in Rio. Silly girl! It's the cue for much simulated sex, and precious little else. The film spawned a sequel two years later, Wild Orchid 2: Two Shades of Blue; Rourke and Otis are wisely missing from it.
