Henry is a plumber who cleans up after the beautiful people. He's a sweet, not-too-bright guy. When he persuades his talent agent brother to make a grade-z skin flick, he figures he'll get to meet a girl, even if it's all an act. But first he has to write a script. And that he does...and it turns out to be a blockbuster. With superstar Janine attached! Paul Thomas presents a strange and poignant story about being careful what you wish for, and more importantly who. Because if you end up with a hit and a harlot, your life may never be the same. And you just may end up wishing you never took the plunge...
Manuel Ferrara plays a plumber who poses as a porn director so he can meet women by auditioning them for a sex flick. The scenario is that the plumber works in an S/M club, then falls in love with ex-porn star Janine, hires her and is almost undone when she turns out to be psychotic.
Janine, in what's advertised as "her final film," has three good scenes: S/M with Steven St. Croix and two three-ways with Manuel and other girls. Director Thomas has fun with the inside porn jokes in David Stanley's "dark comedy" script. Jane Waters' videography is excellent.
Pre-noms: Best Actress - Video: Janine. Best Actor - Video: Manuel Ferrara. Best Videography: Jane Waters.
Retailing: A must for Janine fans.
