Actually, that’s kind of an unfair assessment. The old timey simile “like a bad penny” refers to an unwanted thing that keeps showing up, whereas Bai Ling’s naked body is most certainly wanted. We would call her a good penny, but you know, the movie is “The Bad Penny.”
Let’s try this again, shall we? Bai Ling putting her back into it as she rides Casey T. Evans with all her might: phenomenal, rainbow-colored penny. Bai Ling turning up dead in the bathroom: terrible penny. Random deaths regularly befalling the gorgeous, sexually-charged characters in movies: bad penny. Well, it seems like we’ve straightened all that up!
