I was wrong. If this docu-drama is close to being accurate (and I doubt if they sensationalized the story TOO much) then Heidi Fleiss is a very nasty, arrogant, deceitful, shallow, stoned-out spoiled brat of a person. After seeing this film I found myself with zero sympathy for her. In fact, the biggest "tragedy" of her life is that she served only 20 months of her 7 year prison sentence.
Portraying the vindictive Fleiss is Jamie-Lynn DiScala, and she does a very credible job. Sometimes it's difficult for actors to take on un-likeable characters without over-acting. DiScala has a natural screen-presence and is a perfect fit.
The movie itself is decent. There are some steamy scenes here & there, although I thought there could have been more (and longer lasting!). There is something about seeing topless women walking around a pool (seemingly 50 yards from the camera) that makes me think "Gosh, what a waste!" Ditto for seeing DiScala's breasts for all of 5 seconds.
If you're interested in Fleiss this movie might be worth a look. If you're looking for a steamy flick there are better ones out there. All in all, if you are looking for movie biographies there are much more interesting and worthwhile PEOPLE out there who have had docu-dramas done on their lives as well. That's my take on things.
Watching the movie knowing nothing about Fleiss until she was on the news, I thought that it was very interesting to see what didn't make the tabloids.
Fleiss comes off as poorly disciplined, free-spirited, and spoiled. All of these traits which carry into her "professional" life. I think that Jamie-Lynn DiScala did a really great job portraying the Hollywood Madame.
I would definitely say that due to the content and subject matter, this movie wouldn't be for everyone. And, if you're expecting this to be soft-core, it's not. It's more of a video biography.
Still I like this DVD because it does pretty good as to introducing the character of Heidi Fleiss but their was no real celebrity stuff.
If you are like me, knows nothing about the lady, watch it. If not dont bother.
The bad: short amount of time.
