It's not easy doing a James Bond parody on a shoestring budget, so you've got to give this video credit for trying. Amber Lynn is our titular heroine, an agent of L.U.S.T., fighting the villains of S.M.U.T. , led by Jerry Butler as Goldpecker. Mr. G has some kind of sex ray that threatens the free world with indiscriminate, continuous fornication, though I can see where a lot of people might not consider that a problem.
Anyway, there's some good comic work turned in by Butler and Buck Adams, and they're helped along by a screenplay that has a genuine sense of humor. But there are more laughs than ecstatic moans to be had from this one, and the plot just peters out without the slightest attempt to wrap up the story in any satisfactory way. This is a pretty big letdown for anyone who hasn't been fast-forwarding to the sex scenes and actually took the trouble to pay attention to the script.
Amber, though billed as the star, doesn't see much action. The bulk of the sex scenery falls on Breezy Kane as Miss Cashquarters, and she's worth her weight in silver. Breezy is reminiscent of a big-breasted Nikke Charm, and she's the pilot light when Amberella, Agent of Lust's got its burners on.
One big technical problem: the lighting. People are usually lit in this weird, low-contrast style that makes it a little hard to see them even though they're clearly not in the dark. Audio's not great either, but dissolves are used nicely in the editing.
