On an episode of HBO's "Pornucopia", Constance Penley said porn likes to spoof Hollywood because mainstream movies can't or won't show actual sex. But there was a time when porn wasn't just a mockery of tinsel town. Might be hard for some to believe, there have been well written and acted pornographic mirrors. "Kinky Business" is clearly a play on "Risky Business".
The only complaint is about the casting of the Rebecca De Mornay character. It was unfortunately not played by one of porn's leading females back then--Traci Lords--who so much resembles De Mornay so much. Lords demonstrated she can act on-screen and off. The biggest contradiction is that Lords appeared in high quality porn productions during most of her porn heyday spent acting the part of an adult.
Tanya Lawson was Angel to De Mornay's Lana. Tom Byron pulls of Tom Cruise as Matt Russell. Byron is the excessive daydreamer. He has an erection for his penis tease neighbor named Gloria aka Ginger Lynn. He dreams of her telling her mom about his---rise. But mom's (Laurie Smith) not angry, she does him. In the dream anyway.
He wakes up to the sounds of his parents leaving for a trip. Matt dreams about his black sheep brother Vince with a girl but wakes up. Vince sends over Tanya Lawson as a prostitute named Angel. "Hello, I'm Angel. Are you ready to f--- your brains out?" What a lady. She instructs him on his pleasuring skills. Not the average hooker/trick encounter, they have actual feelings for each other. She's too expensive so they concoct a plan to turn his parents place in a whorehouse to make big money. Angel staffs it with her hooker friends.
Naked Lois Ayres tempts Vince from next door. He goes over but she plays dumb. He leaves but sees her pulling the same shtick again but ignores her this time around. Matt invites him over and he sees Crystal Breeze and Renee Tiffany doing a show for Ron Jeremy.
Matt jealously thinks Vince and Angel are into each other. Is Vince taking over? Matt sees Gloria (Lynn) who's upset he didn't invite her to his "party". If he had, who knows, he might have gotten some of her. She leaves him alone. But he won't stand for it, he's now a cool guy with slick clothes and sunglasses. He comes onto her in the shower, she's turned on her by confidence.
It turns out nothing happened with Angel and Vince. Vince hooks up with Laura (Lois Ayres) Matt's economics tutor, who turns was the teaser from next door. This time she's open to his charms, which gets expressed on thetable.
Matt's parents are coming back but Tracy isn't ready to go. Again, Traci Lords should have had the part as "Angel." Her customer didn't show up so she wants to be satisfied. Matt is her man. Maybe the producers of "kinky business" felt she should have been the lead woman, but somehow she wasn't. Her having the last scene with Tom Byron could have been a consolation prize. Nice scene.
Matt can't leave with Angel, he doesn't have enough money saved. His parent shows up. Angel hears the news that Matt's uncle left his entire estate to him. Matt wakes up again. His mom tells him that she and his father are leaving to take care of his sick uncle for a few days. He smiles and put on his sunglasses. "If this is a dream, I don't want to wake up."
