The Graduate XXX: A Paul Thomas Parody puts a XXX spin on one of mainstream media's most promiscuous features. Just like the original, The Graduate XXX follows the life of Ben (Anthony Rosano) after he graduates college. Ben falls in love with Elaine Robinson (Raven Alexis), but in the process gets mixed up in an affair with his parents' friend and Elaine's mother, Mrs. Robinson (India Summer).
We're unclear whether the opening shot of Ben (Anthony Rosano) walking slowly along an airport corridor is supposed to be a parody of Dustin Hoffman's moving walkway ride in the movie this production is parodying, but at least it shows that director Paul Thomas has a flair for detail.
Indeed, just about all the iconic scenes are here, though often out of the order we're used to, and with some slight variations—for instance, Ben's affair first takes place in a sleazy motel rather than the classy high-rise of the original—and they're often used to set up sexual action.
As the plot thickens, of course, Ben is worried about his future—but not so worried he doesn't notice Mrs. Robinson (India Summer) sipping a drink in a corner—and she's so horny she slips in the bathroom for a quick tickle with what appears to be a hair trimmer. And Ben, standing outside the door, hears her and moans right along with her—a fact she can't help but notice.
She insists that he has to drive her home—and the viewer can easily detect the beginning of a mild S/M relationship in their repartee (which, thinking back, is not unlike the original)—and of course, once they're there, her seduction begins ... with a blowjob beside her daughter Elaine's (Raven Alexis) portrait.
Rosano nails his character in nearly every scene, and while Summer lacks a bit of the sophistication of Anne Bancroft, she plays a better—and definitely sexier and more adventurous—paramour. For instance, that first liaison has India tied and ball-gagged as Anthony whips her ass with a riding crop. (Don't worry; the sex gets somewhat more conventional after that—and a damned sight hotter!)
Time gets condensed in porn parodies, so it's only a few moments later that Ben goes on his first date with Elaine ... which upsets Mom terribly, though husband Herschel Savage is clueless. And of course, he takes her to a strip club featuring his old schoolmate Kagney Linn Karter—and of course, Kagney waves her tassles over Raven's head, then takes the pair back to her dressing room. But once they're gone, Kagney's manager/pimp Evan Stone fucks her on the floor.
India's face captures just the right emotions when Anthony spills his guts to Raven about their affair, but recovers enough to play bondage games with gal-pal Veronica Avluv—and of course, we know where that leads! Look for some paddling, horsie play, face-sitting and fingers in (and mouths on) pussies.
When Raven confronts Anthony about his stalking her on campus, it turns into a sweet, passionate love scene—until boyfriend Dale DaBone shows up and whisks her away—and Herschel warns Anthony to stay away from Raven's impending wedding to Dale. Does anyone need to be told what happens next?
Along the way, there's also a decent three-way between DaBone, Lexi Belle and Marie McCray stuck in that includes plenty of mish, cowgirl, doggie and oral, but it's just the icing on one of the most flavorful movies we've yet seen this year.
