John Leslie\'s features are all hits; Selena Steele, an attractive, underexposed star on pretty box cover.
Exceedingly erotic, well-directed, acted in great style and funny, Playin' Dirty proves that director John Leslie can play it light as well as deeply psychological, which we're used to. One great sex scene follows another., and Ron Jeremy turns in one of his best performances in years.
Jeremy embezzles seven million dollars from his miserable boss Jamie Gillis, who pays Rene Morgan to keep quiet about his "other" life, that of the leader of a group of sex-hungry, golf-crazy bikers (bicycles, that is). Gillis catches Jeremy stealing the dough and has his biker gang kidnap Ron's wife (played by the ever-lovely Rachel Ashley, sporting long, brunette hair). But, Gillis seems to fall in love with Ashley, while Jeremy huddles with cohort Morgan to run off with the money.
What seems to be another corporate, double-dealing sexvid turns into a parody of several worn, cliched genres and that's what makes Playin' Dirty so much fun. And the sex scenes are fast and nasty enough to keep the viewer salivating for more. Tom Byron and flowing blonde Heather Torrence create sparks, as do Gillis and Ashley in their love scene (cute parody here as well). The opening six person sextravaganza with six bikers (including Selena Steele who is very sexy) is carefully edited to get the full impact of three separate sex scenes.
Jeremy steals the show, though, as the corrupt, menace to Gillis who thinks that his wife being kidnapped is a blessing (a la Danny DeVito in Ruthless People). Quite hilarious, and skillfully done, is the scene where Sasha and Selena are gang-banging him as he tries to steal a bracelet from Torrance, who's humping with Byron.
Playin' Dirty has all the elements of a perfect sexvid, including superb technical qualities (crystal clear videography, excellent editing) that is rarely found in today's productions. Very highly recommended if you care about quality.
