If you loved Irresistible you won't be disappointed by this cleverly done sequel which uses the same premise - the time machine - but with some new twists. The machine is a booth in an adult video arcade and the character who goes back and forth in search for pleasure is a dirty, scruffy, wino bag lady named Becky who asks the disembodied voice in the booth if the time machine could transport her to the nearest bar for a drink - a far cry from Richard Pacheco in the first film.
Alexandria Greco is wonderful! She looks good, acts well, has comic style and does one of the hottest sex scenes I've seen in a long time. It is a beautifully done twosome with Mike DeMarco as Zorro and Ms. Greco as a Spanish dona in which they get so carried away with each other that they forget the camera and achieve a sensuality and intimacy that makes the viewer sweat. The camerawork heightens the scene by emphasizing their expressions until the agonizingly intense orgasm. Whew!
There is plenty more sex, beautifully conceived with great costumes and pretty people. The nineteenth century English threesome with Tom Byron, Erica Ross and Tiffany Blake is worth a mention and the 1950's scene between Jerry Butler and Jeanette Littledove sizzles as well.
The photography is sensitively achieved, with close-ups that don't intrude. Everything is framed just right, allowing us to see the beautiful sets that give this movie a real Hollywood feel. The costumes are excellent - in keeping with each period - and elegent, too. The writing is good and the direction quickly paced and crisp. It enhances each scene by first being within the period portrayed, and second by moving well with the action.
Essex deserves a thank you for responding to the need for good "couples" tapes by giving us this movie. The star is a woman and she gets the pleasure she deserves.....so do we!
