Wave Video, the new kid among adult tape manufacturers on the block, makes an impressive debut with this Paul Thomas directed effort about spouse neglect.
Except for a sappy intro that has Randy West in a Moses getup (he receives his Ten Commandments but takes a powder from the mountaintop before he can get the 11th-Thou Shalt Not Neglect Thy Wife), this feature has hot sex, peppery dialog, colorful sets and a cast that came to act.
West is a politician, would-be governor and present tense womanizer who isn't cutting the mustard with his wife, Krista Lane. She responds in kind. Evidently she's seen the film, "V" - The Hot One, where Annette Haven, as a lawyer's wife, escapes the confines of her marriage by setting out on a sexual rampage of depravity. In fact, Lane plays out a similar scene as Haven when she ventures into a porno palace (looking like Liza Minelli in a man's suit) and takes on Megan Leigh and her Jerry Butler lookalike boyfriend.
Lane and West exchange love on the rocks broadsides throughout as he campaigns and she filibusters in a urinal with AM/FM neo punk fashion designer Tom Byron and his gel/mohawk kemosabe Erica Boyer. Jamie Summers flits in and out of the picture as a TV anchorwoman whom you know West is going to try to pop sooner or later, that is, if his wife doesn't get there first. It's a photo finish as they both get her in a torrid three-way desktopper.
Somewhere in this mire of semi-decadence which includes a mild S & M-er between Alicia Monet and West, comes the somewhat startling realization to him that he's been straying too far from the ranch. And not a minute too soon before the 12th Commandment gets violated—know when to quit and roll the credits.
A great first effort for Wave Video and kudos to director/writer Thomas for delivering a first rate piece of intensity.
