Genuinely a good adult film
14 April 2005 | by (Kelfour's Landing) – See all my reviews

Alright, Gloria Leonard is pretty miscast -- although middle-aged name porn actresses were thin on the ground in 1985 -- but otherwise this was one of the rare XXX flicks with a genuine plot, legitimately believable characters and dialogue, and respectable acting performances.

Raven is downright rapacious (and *why* did she feel the need to succumb to insanely fake looking boob jobs down the road?), while Paul Thomas' typical somber woodenness fits for a change in his role of a suburban professional father in well over his head. And 'tis a pity Taija Rae was born a few years too early: what with the occasional acceptance of X-stars in the legit film world, she could have had a crossover career, because she was a decent actress. I wonder what ever did happen to her?

Rating: 8/10
