Critical Rating: AAAAA

The grand daddy of porn, the most famous, most notorious, most talked about and most watched fuck flick of all time. While the jolt it gives to a pecker might have waned over the years, it's still one hell of a sex show. Super porn star Linda Lovelace plays an innocent young lady who can't get off when she's getting fucked. She talks to her friends, who are no help. She goes to a quackish doctor (Harry Reems) who does all sorts of tests and discovers that her clitoris is about nine inches down her throat. So, what she needs is a guy with a nine incher to fuck her in the mouth, and then, she can get off. He tries it out with his prick, rams it down her gullet, and presto! she's seeing stars and rockets launching. The comedy is vaudevillian, puncyh and crude but effective. See it just for Dolly Sharp's famous 'lunch' scene alone. Incidentally, the doctor's nurse is a pre-nose job, pre 'Gong Show" Carol Connors, who's a sexy delight.


 

Critical Rating: AAAA 1/2

Now that Deep Throat and the original Debbie Does Dallas are available on DVD, it's safe to say that the market has officially taken off.

Frankly, the quality of the film was never what made Deep Throat the most famous porn movie of all time. But in licensing the title from Arrow, VCA has obviously spent some time and money cleaning up the master because it never looked this good on videotape. (We don't think the American Film Institute is donating any money to save the negative, so this will have to do.)

We all know the plot and notoriety surrounding Deep Throat. It's still funny ("Mind if I smoke while you're eating?") and minimally erotic more than 25 years later. Collectors will definitely want the original adult "classic" for their DVD collections. The only extras the disc offers are filmographies on the four major stars. No matter. Retailers should note that it will be a staple in your store forever, just like the videotape version.


 

Critical Rating: AAAA 1/2

You're probably asking, "How could anyone rate Deep Throat, admittedly a classic but a AAA movie at best, so highly?" The answer is, no matter what version of Deep Throat you may have seen before, until you've seen this DVD, you've never really seen Deep Throat.

No, the sex hasn't been improved – but in this remastered version struck from the original negatives, every movement, every skin tone is crystal clear; the colors are beautiful throughout, and there are no awkward splices to detract from the classic movie experience – and that's true even if you watch the disk on a standard TV.

So watch and remember all the anal, the d.p., all the bad jokes ... and of course, all the deep throating.

Retailing: It's the best possible edition of Deep Throat, as anyone who sees it will attest.
