The murder goes off without a hitch, but when a persistent investigator threatens to uncover the plot, Peter begins to suspect that Sandra may betray him and turns to her promiscuous teenage stepdaughter, Angie, to help turn the tables on her and Angie's boyfriend, Scott, whom is apparently in cahoots with Sandra.

Porn's answer to "Double Indemnity"
28 May 2001 | by (Midnight Movie Land) – See all my reviews

John Holmes plays an insurance salesman who sells Leslie Bovee a high-sum insurance policy against her husband. She wants him killed and John Holmes is getting deeper and deeper in trouble. Movie is filmed in Hawaii and that was this movies big selling point. Many scenes of mid 1970s Honolulu and Oahu are shown. John and Leslie have sex in the back of a convertible in a cane field, they have sex at the water's edge on a beach ( with a paranoid John Holmes almost constantly looking over his shoulder so as to not be caught filming here.)

Fun movie, great scenery, a lot of outdoor sex for a change in an adult film. Recommended if you enjoy the natural pre-video female porn queen type bodies.
