Sweatin' to the Eighties
13 December 2014 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Going nowhere in her desk job, cute single mom Cynthia Dale (as Samantha "Sam" Blair) decides to open an exercise club. She rents a warehouse and calls it "Heavenly Bodies". Romance shines on Ms. Dale in the form of blond football player Richard Rebiere (as Steve). When the fitness craze blankets North America, a TV station hires Dale to host an exercise show. She edges out cute blonde Laura Henry (as Debbie Martin), who works at a rival club. It's only a local TV show, but Ms. Henry is more than miffed. She decides to shut down "Heavenly Bodies", with help from her lover Walter George Alton (as Jack Pearson). When one lover says to the other, "I heard you got shortchanged between your legs," we have a fist-fight. It all climaxes with a "workout marathon" between the two fitness clubs. The winning team gets "Heavenly Bodies". Director Lawrence Dane generously shows off many well-proportioned young women jumping around the screen, in tight work-outfits. You might get dizzy watching them.

**** Heavenly Bodies (12/15/84) Lawrence Dane ~ Cynthia Dale, Richard Rebiere, Laura Henry, Walter George Alton
