Critical Rating: AAAA
On his deathbed, the great British actor Edmund Keane was quoted as saying, "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard." Well positioned to choose one or the other for himself earlier this year (see Boneyard, July '96), Holliday took the road less traveled, serving up yet another winner in his long series of "out there" esoterica. Night Shift Nurses 2 is a terrific comedy and a sexual romp. The production is so technically sound and the performances so uniformly good, that it's difficult to select any "stand-out" material, but here goes anyway: pre-noms for Best Comedy and Best Editing, and to Juli Ashton as Best Actress and Joey Silvera as Best Supporting Actor.
Even "four quarts low," Holliday shows a better grasp of vide-making than most directors in the adult industry will have in their moments of greatest lucidity. Still, the one disappointment in an otherwise superior production is that after a terrific all-girl orgy, NSN2 doesn't reach a climax so much as it winds down to a stop.
If, as Holliday insists, he has indeed directed his last "Nurses" picture, retailers and fans alike may rest assured that he the "Man In White" has thrown the night shift a worthy retirement party. Stock it!!!
