Couples who enjoy porn melodrama and Jim Powers fans.
For a supposed satire of director Jim Powers' career, this story's awfully dour. Johnny Thrust turns in an excellent performance in a double role (playing Powers and Powers' son), transcending the script's insistence that he spend too much time sitting around looking pensive. History is rewritten to make Powers a freedom fighter, choosing to die rather than turn on the industry when the feds are after him. His son, initially disgusted by daddy's proclivity for "degrading women," is directed to view tapes that document his dad's rise to porno stardom. Most of the sex is above average - footage starring Thrust and Mariah Wind yields a good reverse cow; an old scene between Vivi Anne and J.J. Michaels is hot, and a scene we recognize from a previous Dane release between Thrust and Cameron Myst is just as good as it was when we first saw it.
