Set in Ohau, Hawaii, Sandra is a wealthy heiress whom persuades insurance salesman, Peter, to sell her husband a $2 million life insurance policy, and then persuades Peter to kill him to get the money. The murder goes off without a hitch, but when a persistent investigator threatens to uncover the plot, Peter begins to suspect that Sandra may betray him and turns to her promiscuous teenage stepdaughter, Angie, to help turn the tables on her and Angie's boyfriend, Scott, whom is apparently in cahoots with Sandra.

User Reviews

Great production values, not so much arousal.
4 January 2010 | by alvabassSee all my reviews

I think my review's title perfectly summarizes my feelings toward this movie. I am a true fan of the "Golden era of porn" and this is undoubtedly one of the most "polished" efforts released during that era thanks to locations, music and the fact that there's some plot and acting. While I've always considered John Holmes a terrible actor (contrary to John Leslie), this and "Hot & Saucy Pizza Girls" are his best attempts.

Unfortunately, the sex scenes didn't do so much for me aside from Leslie Bovee's evident oral expertise displayed in the end of the scene at the cane field.

If you want to see a movie with similar production values AND some really arousing sex scenes, check 1978's "The Other Side Of Julie". Now that's what I call an overall high-quality production (for porn standards, of course).
