Trivia

Several times during the movie is mentioned Electra did a lesbian sex scene where she makes love with herself. When people ask her about how this was done, she eludes the question. Later it is revealed Elektra has a twin sister, Celia and they both appear on screen at the same time when Elektra visits Celia in jail and they are identical (apart from hair, make-up and clothes, obviously) so at this point the viewer can deduce the aforementioned sex scene was played by Elektra and her sister.

In the final credits, Celia is credited as played by Taryn Gugino, leading the viewer to believe Carla Gugino has a twin sister but this is false. Celia was really played by Carla Gugino herself and she doesn't have any twin sister. See more »

The "women in trouble" return.
11 July 2011 | by lewiskendellSee all my reviews

Elektra Luxx is the slightly improved sequel to Women in Trouble. If you enjoyed that movie at all, then this one will also probably be worth your time. 

A lot of the failed attempts at humor where left out this time around, and the story focus also lies more heavily on the characters of Elektra (Carla Gugino), Holly Rocket (Adrianne Palicki), Bambi (Emmanuelle Chriqui), and Bert (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). The story lines of those characters in the first movie are continued right where they left off, and they're also joined by a few new faces like Timothy Olyphant, Malin Akerman and Lucy Punch. 

Elektra Luxx is also a much tamer movie than Women in Trouble, despite the fact that most of its characters are still porn stars. Besides a few curse words, this could have been a PG-13 film. 

As I said before, check this out if you're interested in the continued lives of the characters from Women in Trouble (the doors are left wide open at the end of this movie for a third entry in the series). Otherwise, there's not a whole lot of reasons to go out of your way to see this.
