Decent cast in an idiotic, lame excuse for porn
22 November 2010 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

The gimmick of fake twin brothers is introduced and then abandoned in TWIN BROTHERS, a particularly lame entry on Vol. 94 of Something Weird's Dragon Art Theatre series.

Billy Lane plays Tom, a guy cheating on his wife Doris (the reliable if unsung Jill Sweete). His girlfriend Pearl (fan fave Sandy Carey) puts him up to a singularly stupid ruse: he tells wifey that his identical twin brother Tim is coming to visit with his wife Pearl (Carey), and he'll be right back to greet them.

Tom ducks out and returns with Pearl, wearing a mustache to pose as Tim. This permits him to go into the bedroom and have sex with her, right under the nose of his unsuspecting wife. Big deal.

Doris invites over a whole bunch of their friends to meet the mysterious (Tom never mentioned him in all these years) twin. At this point the film falls apart completely, as the expected slapstick and quick-change shenanigans never occur. The anonymous filmmakers don't even bother with the expected orgy: folks just pair off and kill time with mechanical sex, couple by couple in separate rooms.

The Something Weird print ended abruptly before Doris or anyone else thought to ask "what happened to Tim?", or had the chance to see the two brothers together. In fact, not only the twin but wonderful Sandy Carey disappears, cheating the fans of a second sex scene with her.

Most of the latter reels consist of Keith Erickson hamming it up as usual, even doing idiotic impressions of "celebrities undressing" (John Wayne, Burt Lancaster). He clearly isn't ready to quit his day job of porn to do stand-up comedy instead.

Besides Ravel's "Bolero", which pops up in countless XXX films before Blake Edwards thought of using it to back a mainstream sex scene, the sound track features some light jazz and a Muzak version of "Aquarius".
