Critical Rating: AAAA
All too often, performers play themselves (as opposed to with themselves) and are not given a chance to do real acting. One example is Wayne Summers, who gives the performance of his career as a small-time nightclub comic who has accepted the fact that he will never be big time. (Another is Ron Jeremy, who has won numerous acting awards.) Aja is a star who has penned her autobiography that will destroy the career of Ted Wilson, America's hottest comedian. A tv show hosted and produced by Alicyn Sterling has gotten wind of this and wants Aja to promote her book on live tv.
Without getting too far into the plot, let's just say that if I have anything to say about it, you should look for this feature and several of its stars on next January's award program. With the exception of the opening Daphne/Cameo/Tom Chapman trio, which just seems to be thrown in, the sex scenes are nicely woven into the story. Ron Jeremy (who gives a very good low-key performance as a literary agent) gives it good to Leanna Foxxx; Wayne and Alicyn have a hot bout in his apartment, and the up-till-now one dimensional Ted Wilson is able to get a rise out of us vis a vis Aja. Credit director Stuart Canterbury with much of this. Along with Scotty Fox, he's one of the few directors with a reasonably frequent output of decently-rated features. How he does it week after week is a tribute to his talent. This is a couples video and can be marketed as such to those who are tired of the everyday wall-to-wallers.
