Storyline

What do you get when you mix madcap Jewish humor with the Superstars of Seventies porn? A tribute to a boyhood spent at raucous Lower East Side comedies (and an adulthood spent writing and directing adult films). Poor Melvin! His meddling mother is making him nutz. His only relief is the covert afternoons he spends at New York's notorious Times Square porn theaters. One day, Melvin discovers a genie in a bottle. What does he wish? To become his favorite porno Superstars and indulge in wild sexual adventures with the sexiest women in sex films. Written by Michael J. Bowen

A Touch of Genie (1974)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Melvin (Douglas Stone) is a rather weird man who works in an antique store. When he's not working he's putting on a funny facial costume and heading to the local porno theater where he watches the movies. One day he masturbates into a vase and out pops a genie (Chris Jordan) who grants him five wishes.

A TOUCH OF GENIE is out there in two different versions. One of them is a full XXX porno while the other one, clocking in at 69-minutes, is a R-rated cut. It's the shorter version that is on review here so if you're wanting comments on the porno version then I can't offer any. As far as this version goes, I must say that it really didn't work too well with me. Director Joseph W. Sarno made some decent comedy films like THE SWITCH and he also made some awful ones like DEEP THROAT PART II. This one here falls into the middle of them but for the most part it's not all that memorable.

Again, perhaps the porn brought more out of the film but as it stands, this version is rather flat, although the cast members are certainly giving it their all. I thought both Stone and Jordan were good in their parts. We've also got a lot of famous porn stars playing themselves including Harry Reems. The problem I had with the movie was the fact that the comedy just wasn't funny and especially the Jewish humor.
