The First 9 1/2 Weeks (1998)

How bad is it? Unwanted low budget, direct to video sequel with nothing interesting.
Should you see it? No.

The second sequel to the erotic thriller "9 1/2 Weeks," this is a prequel that uses none of the cast of the original, nor any of the plot. Malcolm McDowell plays a millionaire in New Orleans (he can't do the accent), whose wife has an affair. Then things go wrong, there's a sheriff involved, there's some minor background characters that take their clothes off (it IS Mardi Gras, after all) and it all leads to a trick ending that's not worth the wait. The jazz soundtrack is forgettable, but better than the dialogue or acting.
