Storyline

The marriage of David Burgess, a senior executive, and his beautiful wife, Sara Burgess, an interior designer, is under great strain because David is in the process of putting together the biggest telecommunications merger in the history of the business. Sara suggests that they attend a kinky sex club to revitalize their marriage and help David to relax. However, David's problems are exacerbated by a huge power struggle at his office between Karen Stone, Gil Braman and himself. Karen, a beautiful, ambitious, ruthless, senior executive, is determined to take over this merger at any cost. To further her aims she hires the services of sleazy divorce private detective Ernie Fontenot to spy on the Burgess's. At the date of the merger draws near and all the blackmail and dirty tricks start to play themselves out, who will come out the winner? Written by Mark Smith <msmith@osi.co.uk>

That myth about women being unattractive when they wear glasses? Not true.
25 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

While there isn't a whole lot of sex in this Playboy production, and even though Miss. Whirry doesn't take her clothes off, "Playback" should receive mention for the presence of Tawny Kitean, who looks FANTASTIC with her reading glasses on. Extra points for the push-up bra she wears in the bedroom scene where her husband brings home an adult video.

If there are any ladies reading this review who have vision problems: Please, throw the contacts away and break out the glasses. Some men think that's really sexy. Makes you look intelligent too.
