Imagine a moving Victoria's Secret catalogue with a sci-fi theme and you have this soft-core romp, which does at least achieve the non-stop prurience to which it apparently aspires. A futuristic fantasy about a sex slave, the film fully exploits single-named leading lady Julia, who portrays the titular android, a date who doesn't demand foreplay, dinner or expensive gifts. In the year 2030, Dr. Felix Flankin (E.R.Wolf) and his nubile technician Max (Stephanie LaFleur) build Veronica 2030, a sexually insatiable robot dedicated to pleasure. When a horny associate takes Veronica on an unauthorized test drive, she's accidentally sent back in time to a present-day sex shop called the House of Fetish. The shop's financially strapped owner, Harry Horner (Joseph Roth), needs a spectacular model to help him attract more customers than Camilla's House of Pleasure, whose ruthless owner (Nikki Fritz) wants to put him out of business. Veronica seems to be the answer to Harry's prayers; she becomes a half-clad model and business booms. But she's also smitten with Harry, and after catching him in a menage a trois, Veronica defects to Camilla's empire. Meanwhile, Flankin and Max, who've been tracking Veronica's whereabouts, take their own trip back in time. They explain Veronica's unique origins to Harry, then infiltrate Camilla's headquarters and return the comely multiple-orgasm machine to Harry's bachelor pad. This dopey romantic comedy, which relies heavily on cheesy titillation, can't overcome wooden acting and static camerawork; that said, does anyone really expect cinematic excellence from a film about a living doll who just can't get enough? Any time plot gets in the way of lingerie shots, it's the plot that takes a back seat, and the movie's target audience would no doubt have it no other way.
