Priceless Early'70s Adult

Author: dgordon-1 from Toronto, Canada
18 March 2003

The previous comment about this movie is not the plotline for "Tropic of Passion". Knowing the way titles are changed on video, or even on cable, it's not surprising that information can get mixed up. The plot consists of a rich heiress that hires detective Johnny Wadd (John Holmes aka: John Duval) to retrieve a porno film she has appeared in that has fallen into the wrong hands. This movie is funny to watch, especially the fight scenes. The editing is awful, the music doesn't suit the scenes throughout the movie, and the sex scenes seem very awkward. Even with all of this, it's an enjoyable movie to watch. If you are interested in classic adult movie fare, especially adult movies shot on film from the heyday of the '70s, then this movie is a must see!

You've ruined Hawaii for me!

Author: murking from United States
3 March 2006

How do you imagine Bob Chinn and his greasy camera got the bucks to fly him, John Holmes and a couple of skanks to Hawaii? This is still early in their career, makes you wonder. This still has the raw grittiness of any Times Square number. But it looks like a vacation for these guys. Holmes rides in a big rental car with a straw hat, checks into a fancy hotel, big room with a balcony, balls of course, and in his way, investigates some crime involving blackmail, heroin and of course...the director. Either by design or as an afterthought, JH and Chinn perform one of their trademark kung-fu battles and it is just the funniest thing you've ever seen. Just feigning the impact of their feeble blows so dramatically could injure just about anyone. This along with Jade Pussycat must have had a great influence of Boogie Nights and any sort of porn-art connoseurs.
