Editorial Reviews

Faye Hanlon is a community-college professor with an emotionally depressed husband and an abundance of sexual frustration. Her sister drags her to a male strip-club for a girls-night out, where she discovers that one of the dancers is her failing student Rick Monroe, a.k.a. "Ricky the Rocket". A heated affair between teacher & student ensues, as Faye struggles to reconcile her emotions and make consequential life choices: Continue her lustful sessions with the studly- but-shallow teen stripper? Or break it off with Ricky & work to salvage her marriage to the loving-but- distant husband?

I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry.

The movie is sexy, entertaining enough, good sex scene, and direction was good.

What I liked about this "B" movie is that the characters were so "ordinary."

He: Shallow, not so smart poor boy with not much to offer the world but good looks and lack of sexual inhibitions.

She: Neglected wife, school teacher, female puts down macho student in class.

Student sees opportunity to take her down sexually and does.

Not a nice guy, but how many people are nice? Vulnerable wife, and how many people are vulnerable?

A lot of nice people get hurt by others who are not evil, necessarily but only shallow, and often shallow and bitter.

Husband: A sympathetic character.

Much better than most low-budget and yet non-"art" films.

Rather lame plot.... but who cares? Chris gives fans 'everything' they want, by providing a frontal shot, and lots of buns. Wow!

This movie took me back to my teen years and the era of disco and strip clubs. Lesley Ann Warren who plays the teacher delivers a flawless performance, she is one of my favorite actresses. Christopher Atkins is something to behold, if you have ever had a crush on any one of your teachers this is the film for you! It is light and very entertaining, I highly recommened it.

Every Christopher Atkins fan should have this film in their collection.
A good addition to any *male stripper* themed library collections as well.
If you never saw the film, go rent it first.
The movie is not the greatest, when judged just on movie traits alone.
But you aren't looking at this movie for a great story line....be honest.
You are looking for a young, fresh, Christopher Atkins in all degrees of naked.
The movie holds up on it's own merit, and is helped by the man-flesh of the supporting cast/extras.

For those who remember the stir caused by The Blue Lagoon, this video is an adult follow up, at least in terms of the Chris Atkins acting career which in hindsight proved mercifully short. It's not a bad video, however. In some ways it is quite decently done and gives an interesting little glimmer into a lost time. On that level it is enjoyable. The handling of the married woman's faltering marriage is another plus. The dance scenes are quite decent and in my view nicely avoided becoming offensive. If you want a short trip back in time this video will give it. I can't rave about it, but I can't complain either.

I personally liked the movie.

Chris Atkins is incredibly sexy even without the Blue Lagoon hair. If you're into the Lifetime-type movies about extramarital or student-teacher affairs, this is one for you.

Mmmm. . .Should Lesley Ann Warren risk a lifetime commitment for a few blissful hours with Chris Atkins? Oh, sure she should!!! Actually, this is a sweet, romantic story about two people who, beyond their strong mutual attraction, seem to genuinely like and find comfort in one another's company. The dance scenes are fun, the plot contains strong elements of humor and sensuality, and the leads turn in some engaging performances.
Good movie, especially for the ladies.

"A Night in Heaven" opened in 1983 to terrible reviews and even worse box office. It was a mainstay on ten worst lists everywhere. It was dubbed "Flashdunce" after another hit movie of that year.

Really, its not that bad. Insubstantial, yes. Ill-conceived, yes. Entertaining? Quite.

Lesley Anne Warren plays Faye, a speech professor at the local community college who is having marital problems. Her husband Whitney (Robert Logan), an emotionally stunted inventor, has seemingly lost interest in her and she is becoming depressed when her sister Patsy (Deborah Rush) takes her out with friends to a local strip club. There, Faye is surprised that the club's star stripper, Ricky the Rocket (Christopher Atkins), is the same cocky student she just flunked in her class. When he sees her in the audience, Ricky does a virtual lapdance for her, and it isn't long before they have plunged into an affair.

Actually, there was probably a very good, serious film buried somewhere in writer Joan Tewkesbury's original script, which is glossily directed by Oscar-winner John G. Avildsen, who went from this fiasco to "The Karate Kid". Unfortunately, the casting of Christopher Atkins in what was obviously originally a supporting role hurts the film considerably. Cast after his breakthrough role in "The Blue Lagoon", Atkins received star billing and all of the film's pre-release publicity. But Warren and Logan are the lead characters, have most of the screen time and obviously have the main relationship in the film. This caused the film to be quite obviously heavily reedited to emphasize the Atkins character, who is a total jerk, completely amoral and unlikable, and poorly played by one of the worst actors ever to be spit out of the Hollywood system.
