L.A. GODDESS revolves around an aspiring screenwriter and the movie studio honcho who woos her. But don't let the romantic plot fool you; this is a love story with a lot of silly softcore leanings.
Lisa Moore (Kathy Shower), a low-budget movie body-double, wants to use her brain, not her considerable bosom, to make a living. While other girls on the set try to sleep their way to better roles, Lisa sits at home working on a screenplay. Studio boss Damian Sterling (David Heavener) comes on
to her, but at first Lisa remains cool. When he offers to let her write the script at his mansion, however, she agrees.
Their romance flourishes. Lisa finishes her script, "Goddess," and Damian announces he wants to produce it. But when underlings at the studio question the wisdom of making "Goddess," Damian second-guesses his motives regarding the script and Lisa. He is cold and distant and hesitates about
making the film. Lisa, thinking Damian has feigned interest in the script in order to sleep with her, leaves. Damian realizes the error of his ways, green-lights "Goddess," and then asks Lisa to marry him.
L.A. GODDESS feels like nothing more than a porno movie that won't go all the way. Like fleshier features, its full of listless acting and vapid, repetitious dialogue. It is also full of filler: one interminable soft-core make-out montage captures Lisa and Damian in front of a fireplace, in a
hot tub, on a beach, on the grass, and in a limo. The film has an amusing moment or two when Wendy McDonald, playing a drunken, bitchy film star, hits the screen, but she's hardly sufficient consolation for sitting through so many starry-eyed gazes. (Extensive nudity, sexual situations, extremeprofanity.)
