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

An amusingly broad and goofy porno comedy from the always dependable Joe Sarno
Hopelessly gawky'n'geeky mama's boy Melvin (played to endearingly nerdy perfection by Doug Stone) discovers sexy genie Amara (the absolutely adorable blonde dish Chris Jordan) in a bottle. Amara grants Melvin five wishes. Melvin wishes that he can become his favorite hardcore movie stars so he can make love to beautiful adult film actresses. Writer/director Joe Sarno, who usually makes thoughtful and intelligent serious soft-core pictures, loads this radical change-of-pace full-blown goofy porno farce with plenty of often hilarious crude jokes, lots of gleefully inane Jewish shtick humor, and outrageously broad Jewish stereotypes. While it might sound offensive, Sarno thankfully takes any potentially objectionable edge off by successfully creating and maintaining a sweet good-natured sensibility that's impossible to either resist or dislike. Moreover, the capable cast have a ball with their colorfully kooky roles. Ultramax in particular contributes a hysterically sidesplitting portrayal of Melvin's overbearing shrew of a mother Ms. Finkelfarb. Harding Harrison likewise amuses as Melvin's whiny kvetch best friend Irving Stein. Delicious brunette Tina Russell enjoys a nifty dual role as both herself and Melvin's flaky gal pal Janet Geckel. The sex scenes are quite funny and fairly explicit: Highlights include doctor Harry Reems having a threesome with a trio of hot babe patients, private detective Marc Stevens giving a luscious female criminal the special treatment, and hunky insurance salesman Eric Edwards getting intimate with his libidinous distaff clients. Joao Fernandes' rough, no-frills cinematography, the blithely bouncy'n'playful score, and the authentically grubby New York City locations further enhance the infectiously silly charm of this cute little hoot.
