Quotes

Joe: [narrating] I was as interested in girls as any other guy. But when it came down to the big act of intercourse, well, I just get cold feet. It wasn't so much that I worry about not being good enough or knowing enough. It was about not caring enough. I ran into girls who would just expect guys to be turned on, like a switch. I wasn't. I couldn't. Maybe I was watching too many old movies late at night on the tube. It was always really romantic. I don't know. Real life wasn't working out like that.

A very good parody
19 March 2000 | by cassioaurelioSee all my reviews

It's very hard to find good porno movies, especially when the film intend to make a parody of a great cinema box-office. In the case of "Summer of '72" - that borrowed the title from the famous Robert Mulligan's "Summer of '42" - we can see a wonderful and delightful surprise. First, the actors. Annette Haven, star of the unforgettable "The Opening of Misty Beethoven" (1976), portrays a mid-aged woman who meets a timid and insecure teenager (Richard Pacheco). The couple performs the final scene love and, for my surprise, it was not a disgusting and mechanical sex scene, but a very passionate one. It seems that the actors truly understood the spirit of the plot and, for sure, made a marvelous happy ending. Also in the cast, Paul Thomas plays Richard's best friend, a not-so-good companion, who likes to tease him with the expression "chunk". Second, the plot. Intelligent, as good as its mentor. This time we have the opportunity to see not only fake actors doing the same old thing, but players who try - and get it - to show a little bit of interpretation. Third, it's an old-fashioned movie. Unfortunately, we cannot see films like that anymore. If we don't research the good oldies, forget it! This one is an exception among thousands of boring porno movies.
