A funny porno with a plot!
24 July 1999 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie the year it was released; I had just turned 18. It still is the only porno movie I have seen that was funny and had a plot. The movie consists of a series of movie parodies (take offs), well, hardcore parodies. maybe it was my age, maybe it was the 70s, but I remember it as a lot of fun; and if I could find a copy I would see it again.
