At first I though, oh no, not another "In Living Color" parody!!! Instead, we have an oh no, it's another "Truth Or Dare" knockoff. Only Black & White In Living Color where it could have gone off the deep end like some porn parodies tend to do, is steadfast, textural, precise, artistic, true to itself and a major credit to the XXX business. Looks-wise, it incorporates the same computerized process that approximates the look of film, the same as we saw in Two Sisters and Principles Of Lust.
I've got to give the devil his due and credit director Robert McCallum for providing food both for the optic and penile nerves. I wanted to see a porn version of Madonna like I wanted a faceful of Saddam Hussein's morning mouth, but Carolyn Monroe is so damned good and with her blonde tresses pulled back fraulein-style (she looks more like a young Anita Ekberg here) is an infinitely mesmerizing sex symbol to behold.
Monroe plays a performer in a live sex show which is being hounded by the censors. Ron Jeremy, in a cameo, plays the producer of the show and delivers a first amendment speech like the speed-talking guy in the TV commercials. It's funny, intricate and powerful. Give this man a nod for best performance in a non-sex role. There's a couple of things about this production I found irritating, but on a minor scale. Get past these and you're home free - one of them being the constant repetition of Monroe doing the Madonna swirl-thing and striking the Madonna pose. Once is allright, twice maybe, but if I had a nickel for every time it's employed in this feature, either as a connecting device or as a filler, I'd be able to foot a first amendment attorney's bill myself.
Two scenes stand out in my brain - one is an anal scene featuring Chrissy Ann and German accented Christian parker, the other, and the main reason for getting this feature, an analer between Monroe and Cole Stevens. The way it's shot, edited and captured on screen is the ONLY way an anal scene should look. It is a killer. The fact that Stevens and Monroe have done the anal number time and again proves that a good sense of camera can always impart a degree of freshness to a scene.
In between are some talking heads sequences and lots more sex, each pairing benefitting from the unique stutter/start/slo-mo/dissolve effects generated by the computer. Nice work and a great boxcover to boot.
