Reviews

A fun comedy in the style of Mannequin when on the night of his bachelor party Ted Becker (David Naughton) mimics his upcoming marriage ceremony and slips his wedding ring on a stolen stone statue of Venus (Vanna White) turning the goddess of love into a real live woman! Venus misinterprets Ted s intentions and wants to take him back to Mt. Olympus forever. Ted is also being sought after by two bumbling thugs who had originally stolen the Venus statue, but who are unaware of her new physical existence, and so embark on a wild chase determined to get her back. Hilarity and mayhem ensues as Ted has to cope with just a bit more than the normal wedding day jitters.

Fun film, but Vanna CAN NOT ACT 29 Jan. 2005
By Jim Jr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This could have been a really fun film if the role of Venus had been cast with someone who could act. Vanna White is a very attractive woman, but she has the emotional ability of a melting snowball. Her line readings were as flat as the western Kansas plains. It is no wonder that she was not cast in another "acting" role after this film.

Taking the basic idea of "One Touch of Venus" with a statue of Venus coming to life and causing havoc for the hero, there were some delightful touches. David Naughton as the hairdresser (barber in "One Touch---") was excellent and that had to be difficult in the scenes with Vanna as he got not one bit of support from her. He had to carry every bit of the story.

SPOILER: The viewer is very relieved at the end when the hero is united with his mortal wife to be and Venus leaves, mainly because Vanna has not generated any quality to make anyone root for her.

The special effects are excellent for a TV film from 1988. These and the good actors in all roles, except Venus, make this a nice viewing experience.

Vanna - stick to turning letters.

Stunning!! 4 Feb. 2014
By Tracy Minicucci - Published on Amazon.com
It's as if Vanna was born to act. Her thick Southern accent works really well at convincing me that she is the daughter of Zeus! She totally says lines and words. Vanna really shines in this wonderful mid 1980s comedy. Her command of the english language must be in part related to the fact that she knows the entire alphabet. Why I bet she practiced real hard for this t.v. movie. She was just as amazing in this role as she was and is at turning letters on a gameshow. Clapping and walking at the same time takes poise and prowess. Not everyone can do what this woman does.

Wow! Much better than anticipated! 17 Jan. 2005
By Brett Heitkam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When I heard about this movie, I just assumed that is was a rip-off of "Mannequin." Well, I was right, but it is very entertaining indeed!

Vanna White plays Venus, Goddess of Love. After failing miserably at three attempts to seduce mortal men, her parents Zeus and Hera (played by John Rhys-Davies, from the TV series Sliders, and Betsy Palmer, Jason Voorhees' mother in Friday the 13th!!) turn her into a statue until the time comes for her to have one last chance at love. Jump to "Los Angeles--Someday" as the subtitle reads; Ted Beckman (played by David Naughton of American Werewolf in London) is getting ready to be married in a few days to his fiance Cathy (Married with Children's Amanda Bearse). His best friend Jimmy (Empty Nest's David Leisure) takes him out to a club for one last night out on the town and through a series of events, they begin talking about the wedding. Ted ends up slipping the ring on a mysterious statue of Venus that's sitting in the courtyard at the nightclub; but then he can't get it off. Well, it turns out that putting the ring on the statue's finger awakens Venus (Vanna White) and she believes that she is now betrothed to Ted and must take him back to Mt. Olympus with her. Chaos ensues as Ted struggles juggle many problems. He has to hide the secret of where the ring went to his fiance, fight off the advances of Venus who refuses to give the ring back, and also deal with the cops who are now looking for a missing statue. Throw a couple of thieves/burglars into the mix (one is played by Boogie Nights' Philip Baker Hall) and you have an over-the-top, funny, and cute movie.

The acting is all very convincing. Vanna White plays Venus with a sort of vacuousness that comes with not understanding the feelings and emotions of mortal love. Everyone seems to be having fun with their role, realizing this is just Made-for-TV fluff that is just meant to entertain on a rainy day. The special effects are VERY good for a 1988 TV movie. It looks really cool whenever Venus goes from being a statue to being human or vice versa. She also can conjure up thunder and lightning, and destroy things by shooting them with a lightning bolt. All this is done very well. One scene has Venus levitating in the air while lightning flashes on her over and over and you cannot see any wires. All in all, good job...and I'm picky about my special effects! :)

There are no special features on the DVD, just the original fullscreen presentation and a scene selection divided up into eight chapters.

If you are looking for a good fun time, pick this movie up, you won't be disappointed!!!

only in the 1980's :) 6 Jan. 2006
By Da Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Goddess Of Love is the type of movie so fun, frivlous and campy, that you know it could've only been made in the 1980's.

While at the height of her Wheel of Fortune popularity, Vanna White was given the opportunity to star in a tv movie. In this, she plays Venus, who awakens from statue form when soon to be married Ted Beckman (David Naughton, An American Werewolf In London) places a wedding ring on her finger to prove a point to his playboy best friend (David Leisure from Empty Nest) that he is going to remain loyal to his fiance (Amanda Bearse, Married With Children).

The movie is absolute fluff, and that is the reason why it is so appealing. Vanna has minimal acting talent, but her charisma illuminates and makes every scene she's in fun. If you cannot handle campy 80's films, this is not the movie for you, but if you wanted to see Xanadu and Mannequin mixed into a blender in the vein of Earth Girls Are Easy (which also came out in 1988), you will adore this movie.

However, I do wonder what Phillip Baker Hall was doing here, he's actually a respected actor.

Vanna can't act 2 Dec. 2012
By Craig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I usually can watch and enjoy almost any movie, no matter how bad. I had heard about this from a friend, and since it was cheap, I ordered it. The best I can say is that it is AWFUL. I assume this script was written with Vanna in mind, but the script writer should have considered the fact that vanna's acting ability is less then zero.
In one scene near the end, we see Vanna eating a piece of fried chicken, and guess what, she gets out acted by it!
