Bo Derek learning to belly roll in "Bolero" (1984)

"In your belly is life's greatest treasure..."

Yep, that's particularly true in my case at the moment, where life's greatest treasure happens to be a good slice of chocolate brownie in the process of being slowly eroded by my digestive juices. Aiwa!

Oh. I don't think that's the kind of treasure that the writer of Bolero (1984) meant:
"[Bolero] follows the tale of a young woman's sexual awakening and subsequent journey around the world in pursuit of her ideal lover. Encounters include an Arabian sheik [played by well-known Arab actor, uh, "Greg Bensen" - The Raqasa] and a Spanish bullfighter. Her friend and butler accompany her and help to arrange her couplings. Moderate nudity and soft-porn."
In a review entitled "Not even Bo Derek's naked body can save this", IMDB user GlenGaryGlenRoss wrote:
"OK, I admit it. Bo has a beautiful body. And I will admit this too. Bolero is so bad that it easily ranks as one of the worst movies ever made."
I think I'll give it a miss.
