a decent quirky number well worth a watch

Great little film that I liked a lot. Leading lady is most appealing and even if mute seems to get as much sex as she can handle. Lots of sucking and f****ing and eating but thankfully not all at the same time. There is humour here and just to make things completely different, ten pin bowling. As with most 'pinks' I've encountered the running time is just over an hour but within that time there is plenty of action and plenty of opportunity to confuse the viewer here and there. I have scored this slightly less than I might have because I felt the last sex scene, although well done, was over long and for the scenes, mostly in the car, that were just too dark. Despite my reservations, though, still a decent quirky number well worth a watch.
