This is a very good documentary on how a housewife from the Midwest         
     moves to Hollywood and becomes a major Porn Star.                      
There was a complete press release package sent with this video that        
     includes other movie reviews. The reviews are very well written        
     and far exceed anything that I could possible write.                   
My review will be basically like all of my reviews, my notes as I           
     watch this tape.                                                       
I did look at this tape first and then put it aside for a few days to       
     decide what to do. My first blush is to give this 'R' rated video      
     the highest possible rating of 5.00!                                   
I look forward to the reviews from Dirty Bob and Roger Pipe. They are       
     both very good reviewers and will give you a much better feel for      
     this very good documentary. The following is my 'review':

Conclusion..........This is a very good documentary. It shows that Porn
                    Stars, as beautiful as they are, and as loved as they
                    are by their legions of fans, are basically just like
                    normal people. This tape has it's up and downs and is
                    very well put together. I was really tempted to give
                    it a perfect 5.00 out of 5.00. But, heck nothing can
                    be perfect and this gives Christine something to shoot
                    for in her next video adventures!
                    You will love this documentary no matter what your
                    prior fan interest in Stacy. Check it out!
