HOT HOT HOT!!! (for softcore porn)

Author: (tapasman) from madison, wi
29 April 2004

This is one of the best done low budget softcore movies ever. The scenes between the two main characters are electrically charged and reminiscent of Penthouse Forum Letters! They go just as far as they need without being vulgar. Camera work is pretty good, nice angles, good lighting, etc. Editing was decent as well, no jump cuts, visible set equipment and continuity was good. In a day when more is better, this leaves something to the imagination while building the sexual tension to a bursting point. The actors are old hat now and have many many b-movies to their credit but this one one of the first for them and the are still fresh.This movie is a must have, I wish they would re-release it on DVD.

One of the better soft-core titles of recent years

Author: smatysia ( from Houston
26 February 2001

Definitely one of the better soft-core titles of recent years. The filmmakers avoid the (almost universally indulged in these days) temptation to feature huge, unnatural mounds of silicone. The two main actresses, Monique Parent and Jennifer Burton are beautiful, yet real, not obvious strippers masquerading as actresses. They can actually act, too. If you like films which are erotic, yet not pornographic, check this one out. Grade: A

Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice meets Emmanuelle and it's all good!!

Author: BlackJack_B
30 June 2002

This might very well be the best softie film of the 90's and on par with the fabulous Emmanuelle. The movie involves two young women who are probably part of a DINK couple (Double Income, No Kids). One of them indulges the other in her sexual fantasies, and slowly but surely, everyone else in their inner circle gets involved, meaning fun for the viewer is in the offing.

Jennifer Burton and Monique Parent steam the screen with raw sensuality, whether the "philosophical discussion" is man/woman, woman/woman, or threesome and more. These two natural beauties deliver knockout performances without talking (both of them are good actors, sadly, I saw the film dubbed in French but I have to get the DVD). While Parent is one hell of a looker, she can't compare with Burton, who looked like she was at her best throughout the filming. She blew me away throughout the whole film with her stunning beauty, passion and aura. I can't recall how many scenes where she portrayed the ultimate in what a woman should look like. Oh, if all women could look like her...

All I can say is that this movie is a must-see and that during the filming of Play Time, the most beautiful woman in the world at that time was Jennifer Leigh Burton. Check it out!

Sexy, funny movie about two couples that find joy in voyeurism

Author: Cesarius from Caracas, Venezuela
5 August 1998

Not a masterpiece, this movie is quite entertaining and funny with acceptable performances from the actors and actresses. But, as is usual with movies of this genere, with a script that is nothing more than an excuse for the quite good sex scenes. Low production values (It's a low budget direct to video release afterall). Nice tempo and photography. And of course beautiful women. If you're looking for some entertaining non hardcore erotic movie I certainly recommend this one.

Very Steamy

Author: Cal-5 from Manteca, CA
3 August 1998

Play Time is very good for what it is, a direct-to-video, erotic, B-movie. This one of those movies you rent or watch on television to see beautiful, naked women. Play Time does not disappoint. It provides some of the steamiest and most erotic scenes that I have ever seen. Monique Parent and Jennifer Burton look great in this movie.

Fortunately, for Jennifer and Monique it's always play time.

Author: David Brown from USA

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This review contains spoilers.

It took me a while to track down a copy of this little out of print softcore title. But it was worth the wait. Although it didn't completely live up to all the hype, it definitely wasn't a disappointment.

The positives.

This video understands that eroticism is about more than just showing naked people going at it. Some real thought went into setting up the situations for the sex scenes. There is a common theme of voyeurism, exhibitionism, and forbidden fantasies throughout:

Monique Parent masturbating while listening to Jennifer Burton have sex with her husband in the next room.

Monique and Jennifer masturbating for each other in the poolhouse.

Monique and Jennifer masturbating for each other at work, and then kissing each other afterwards to try and figure out if they are lesbians.

Monique and Jennifer masturbating (themselves and each other) in a bedroom, while Jennifer's husband secretly watches from the closet.

Jennifer having sex with her husband's female first cousin, in front of her husband.

Monique masturbating in a hot tub, while Jennifer and her husband have sex in the same hot tub, right next to her.

Jennifer masturbating for and then having sex with Monique's husband.

Monique having sex with Jennifer's husband.

Monique's husband recounting the time that his stepmom masturbated him, and then brought over a girlfriend to help her do it again.

The themes in this video are on the naughty side and masturbation (obviously) is prominent. This really makes it unique among most other softcore that's currently available. This video also understands what its audience wants. From the very start, right up to the end credits, it never lets up. There is very little downtime between the sex scenes.

The negatives:

As good as the sex scenes were, they could have been better. The women keep their panties on too often and what should have been a full out orgy at the end faded to the credits just as things were getting good. There is no true lesbian scene in this video, and it would have been a great addition.

The video gets a little "serious" in the middle, and the actors and actresses are laughably bad at pulling off the dialogue in those scenes.

Overall though, this is still a very memorable softcore video. And the fact that this was all done in 1994 is pretty impressive considering how well it compares to more recent stuff.

erotica at its finest

Author: Bilnum34evr from USA
14 July 2001

Play Time is one of those movies that you don't rent for its deep interesting plot. You rent this because you want to see gorgeous women taking it all off, and this movie delivers the goods. The basic plot is two couples go away on vacation and the two women experiment with consensual voyeurism. One thing leads to another and they end up liking it alot and want to get their husbands in on the game. They end up trading partners which of course ends up in a fight but at the end of course is resolved. But thats not why you watch this movie. You watch this movie to see Monique Parent and a very erotic and sexy Jennifer Leigh Burton get it on with each other, and then with their husbands. This movie has some of the hottest softcore sex scenes money can buy, and is guranteed to be an instant favorite for anyone with interest in this type of movie.

Be sure to check out the hot tub scene. It is the hottest minute and a half of softcore sex on video!

packed erotic scenes

Author: first2third
2 December 2000

This is a very good soft porn movie. Monique Parent and Jennifer Burton have several good scenes both together and with partners and the cameo flashback at the end is great. If your renting for lots of sex in a romantic, erotic setting don't miss this one . This is one that my wife and I both agree is one to see.

Incredibly hot and erotic film

Author: yunganak
20 September 1999

Jennifer Burton and Monique Parent star in this incredibly erotic and sexy movie about 2 couples who go on vacation and experiment in consensual voyeurism. The two actresses put on very good performances and the two experimental women. Their sex scenes are so hot and steamy they are guaranteed to arouse anyone with a pulse. It is erotica at its finest. If great sex scenes are what you are looking for than this is the movie for you.

Very erotic and one which men and women will love

Author: lawsonsinger from UK
3 May 2002

Until it loses its way in the last couple of scenes which proved very seedy compared with everything that had gone before, this was an extremely erotic two hours which is definitely one to watch with your partner.

While making sure the eye-candy is great for the guys - and in Jennifer Burton and Monique Parent we have two of the best, with not a speck of silicone in sight thank goodness - the director makes sure he chose a couple of stars who could actually act too, so the character development was pretty good for a film devoting to offering as many sexy scenes as it could.

The whole film is seen from the female point of view, with the two married couples being seen to agonise about whether they should push the boundaries on their marriages - there is no way these people would jump into bed with just anyone.

So this gave Play Time the realism that both men and women can identify with, as well as being predominantly a story of loving and straightforward sex between two sets of happily married, if stuck in a sexual rut, couples.

The sex scenes are enormously erotic, probably because they are never graphic - a level of eroticism usually only seen in continental soft porn like one of my all-time favourites Emmanuelle.

Highly recommended.
