A movie would have to be "Gone with the Wind" (and it would have to be 1939) to get much more than an 8 out of me -- especially if it's simply a campy sex romp, like this. For the type of movie this is, this is about as good as it gets.
Many of the cast members, such as Christine, are old hands in these sort of softcore flicks (she seems to be a regular on Cinemax "productions"). A lot of his earlier films even featured him as one of the chief (or bit) players -- quite often making some sort of comment about "the new Fred Olen Ray movie that's coming out," which I usually got a kick out of -- usually talking about how this guy made "Hollywoood blockbusters," lol.
My sole complaint about his movies is that so far as I know, he hasn't made any hardcore versions of these films, whereas some softcore movies are adaptations of hardcore movies (although if they're not done well, and just out-takes of something shot just for hardcore, the softcore version is usually a real disappointment, because of how they have to cut to make it a softcore). Fred's work is so well-done in softcore -- just barely avoiding things that would push it over the limit -- I think he could easily continue some of those scenes a bit longer and just leave that footage out of his softcore versions, and market a hardcore version...
Since the opening sex scene featured hardcore superstar Alexis Texas, that was an excellent example of a scene where he could have capitalized on a few extra camera angles and a few extended scenes that just got cut from the softcore version. This movie is good enough I might actually BUY a hardcore version of it (and I don't buy many, lol).
When you look at the industry's new trend towards true hardcore flicks with actual acting and story, most still aren't as well done as this, even though there are quite a few talented actors and actresses in the adult entertainment industry.
Oh well. This is still a fun, campy, and HOT flick to watch. Jeff
