Extraordinarily creepy, that's what. Apparently they thought crossing <i>Showgirls</i> with <i>Law & Order: Special Victims Unit</i> would be a good idea. The height of discomfort occurs during a hypnosis sequence as megahot Lisa Boyle performs a strip routine dressed in little-girl clothes complete with pigtails and teddy bear which is intercut with memories of her father making advances on her as a 6-year-old. The abuse is mercifully only implied but still completely kills any chance to enjoy the dance routine - what the hell were they thinking??
The second standout feature is that <i>Midnight Tease</i> managed to assemble the absolute worst acting ensemble outside of a porno, and I'm sure there are some pornos with a leg up. I've seen plenty of D-grade detritus and I'm not kidding - EVERYBODY stinks, from the big roles to the small roles and everyone in-between. Special Razzies go to Rachel Reed as Amy the new girl and J.J. the scummy club owner (is there ever any other kind?) On the bright side there's a good number of unintentional laughs to be had, like the psychiatrist who gets stabbed 5 times in the chest and wheezes, "I'll be fine!" Same goes for the dreadful music score with lyrics that must be heard to be properly ridiculed.
So why does this clunker rate a nothing-to-write-home-about 1.5 stars instead of total bomb? Did I mention the megahot Lisa Boyle (here credited as Cassandra Leigh)? And here we come to the third noteworthy feature, a light S&M performance with her and personal favorite Ashlie Rhey that ranks as one of the most wolf-whistling sensuous routines in the entire history of movie stripping. When you consider the number of cop movies alone that have been made where a visit to the titty bar is always a requirement, that's a lot!
Final fun anecdote, here's a Crazy Credit WTF: a Nancy Klein is listed as 'Teacher.' Not in the cast list mind you, right between Key Make-Up Artists and Production Controller. Were some of the dancers working on their GED's at the time?? Always hear about strippers paying their way through college.
