Critical Rating: Not Yet Rated
Shot in Italy, presumably to take advantage of the 1990 World Cup which was held there, World Cup, featuring the former Italian Parliament member Cicciolina (Rise of the Roman Empress), features tons of sex, squeezed into this relatively compact running time. Anal, group sex, interracial and Cicciolina and Moana Pozzi screwing everything in sight... the European way.
These imports offer no dubbing or subtitles, so forget the plots. Grainy stock soccer footage in World Cup adds ambience, but it's an awfully cheesy effect. The sexual highlight has the dubbed Ron Jeremy and a banana double penetrating Moana while Cicciolina shoves a banana up her ass. Jeremy eats the fruit and her before an engaging three-way sex scene. All the girls in the film blow soccer players, as well, and Cicciolina (the Italian Mariel Hemingway?), well, turns up in nearly every sex scene, doing it orally, getting fucked or boned up the ass. Production values are so-so, but the sex often works. If you're marketing Private and other foreign features, you might want to stock this. Also, Cicciolina enjoyed some popularity over here, so it's likely you'll have some movement with this title.
Erotic Games also has lots of sex (anal, interracial, group, etc.) with enthusiastic performers, but without the sexual presence of Cicciolina to drive it, it seems a little anonymous. The language barrier hurts a little here. However, Joy Karins is cute and hot and a nasty catfight turns into a succulent lesbian lick. Production values are again fair, but the sheer novelty of original language Italian films should make Erotic Games profitable. If you can only buy one, grab World Cup.
