Critical Rating: AAA
As a sex feature, Dick At Night, the "Nick At Night" parody, delivers at a pretty good pace with some nifty scenes (they're in color as opposed to the sitcom situations which are in black&white), thanks mainly to Alex Jordan and Sierra – but as a comedy it taps the wrong veins looking for gold. The best episode is "Mr. Head" which features a forse that has a better vocabulary and more sense than anyone in the cast. Misfires include "The Donna Reamed Show". Cute title, great boxcover (with Melanie Moore, who has perfect TV wife-dimples), but someone should have realized that this relic is nearly spoof-proof. To lampoon it is kind of like Rich Little doing a funny Robert Redford impersonation; who cares? "Bewacked" (as in "Bewitched") isn't saved, even with Jonathan Morgan as the male lead, and he doesn't score as the Gary Owens-type commercial announcer either.
Sexually, Melanie Moore takes it in the ass as Donna but without the benefit of an insertion sequence. Sierra, as her daughter, hangs on for dear life while she fucks boyfriend T.T. Boy in a "biology experiment"; then comes back for a later stint in "Bewacked" as Samantha to take on Morgan's Darren. Jon Dough and Patricia Kennedy provide a scene that's generic enough to fit in any video context. Alex Jordan in the "Mr. Head" sequence takes on Melanie who visits as Donna (explain how Alex's husband, Shawn Ricks, was also Melanie's husband), then goes to work on Ricks by sitting at length on his face, then his dick.
Cute is the best description for Dick At Nite, but even this business has seen better TV parodies.
