MOVIE REVIEW : ‘Wild Orchid’ Makes Its Sex Seem Ludicrous
Wild Orchid movie review & film summary () | Roger Ebert
We engage in a conspiracy of silence about erotic movies. We discuss their plots, their characters, the truthfulness of their worlds. We never discuss whether they arouse us - whether we're turned on. Critics are the worst offenders, occupying some Olympian peak above the field of battle, pretending that the film in question failed to engage their intelligence, when what we want to know is whether it engaged their libido. It cannot be read any other way. There is no other purpose for its existence.
Emily Reed travels to New York City to interview with a law firm, which offers her a job if she flies to Rio de Janeiro the following morning. Emily agrees and is introduced to Claudia Dennis, one of the firm's top executives. They arrive in Rio to finalize the purchase of a hotel, but Claudia must fly to Buenos Aires to meet the owner. Claudia instructs Emily to cover her date that night. The date is a wealthy man named James Wheeler.
It asks us to believe that Mickey Rourke--sporting a wardrobe that consists mostly of black sports coat over bare chest, one gold earring and numerous layers of dark pancake makeup--is an international entrepreneur trying to overcome a deprived youth as the stuttering child of Pittsburgh proles. It asks us to believe that Jacqueline Bisset, as Claudia, takes business calls while dancing the frug and has tremendous difficulties getting Rourke into bed. It asks us to believe. Well, why go on? This movie makes sexual adventurism seems so ludicrous, that it might have been made by Puritans in disguise, trying to portray hedonists as a pack of fatheads.
