The team of writer Patti Rhodes and director Fred Lincoln start over a bit with the third leg of this 5-hour saga, which like Part II is only notable for the presence of Taylor Wayne as a most alluring hit-lady.
Wayne and her trademark gun barrel-in-anus method of assassination impress as Mafia Princess Cameo hires her again to do away with Marc Wallice, who was killed off in Part 1, but in a rather amusing joke reappears as that earlier character's relative in the Spinelli family (in-joke reference to classic porn director Anthony Spinelli). His shocking reappearance is explained by Cameo: "all the Spinellis look alike", and sure enough Wallice is back again as a third Spinelli in Part IV after his second demise.
Other in-jokes include Taylor announcing after she's humped Marc: "I've got something for you that'll blow your mind", and then inserting the long barrel of her gun into the actor's rectum -and firing away. First episode couldn't resist a having character referred to as "My cousin Vinny".
Parts 3 and IV were shot together, and a set-piece scene in a bar with strippers is very obviously shot all at once, with no attempt by director Fred Lincoln to make it look like different time frames. An uber-busty stripper on stage in both shows goes uncredited, and the gimmick is that Cameo gets up on stage as an amateur peeler and then makes love in public there to Micky Ray, while the audience of male extras jerk off.
Poor writing by Rhodes has Aja joining the cast in a starring role as a cousin to the Goddaughter, with yet another cousin showing up, Heather Hart from Florida. There are flashbacks from Part II to explain the ongoing story line but much of it is arbitrary and disconnected, as Aja the woman of the mansion previously owned by Alicyn Sterling, whose character was summarily dropped after Part 1.
Theme song is a nice variation on Nino Rota's haunting original theme for Coppola's movies, while most scenes qualify as Jazz Porn with evocative music playing including a saxophone solo based on the standard "Tangerine" that Lincoln plays and replays in all four episodes.
