Personally, I LOVED IT
12 August 2003 | by (Tennessee, USA) – See all my reviews

Speaking as a female, I can't say that the women in the movie did much for me at all...however, Mark Ritter did EVERYTHING for me! I enjoyed this movie almost solely because of him. I was surprised to find a really good actor in the middle of a softcore porn movie. I would love to see him in something that could really showcase his talents (besides being absolutely the most beautiful man I have ever seen in my life...so what if he isn't 21?) This could have been a really GOOD movie overall if the sex hadn't actually gotten in the way of a decent storyline. I know, it is a silly thing to say about a porn movie. I guess I was watching for the romance...and that did come through. I sure hope that he does more films or TV because I would give my eyeteeth to know more about him. All I can find out is what is on here...and that he is a model with LA Management. The mark of a good actor is one than can make me wish I KNEW that character personally. He made Gage seem very interesting and mysterious. I can't help thinking what COULD have been done with this film.

I thought Lauren Hays did a great acting job as well. These two actually have what it takes to do feature films...but apparently Lauren LIKES doing porn films. I wonder if Mark does. I thought the woman playing Ariel was really good and quirky but the rest of the women almost seemed extraneous.
