My, won't it be nice when the "Miami Vice" mania subsides? 69th Street Vice is a very uninspired cop show parody starring Sharon Kane and Taija Rae as vice cops Gagme and Layme (get it?), who pose as hookers in order to clean up the streets. Any connection to "Miami" is purely accidental, as is any arousal from the pedestrian sex scenes offered here.
Even though Kane and Rae are the nominal stars of the film, they're only featured in two vignettes each. The remainder of the film dwells on two extended Obligatory Lesbian Scenes between hookers and sex clinic workers, an interracial encounter with a white and black prostitute and their black pimp, and the girls' captain on his own assignment at the aforesaid clinic. There is nothing new or different here.
Speaking of nothing new or different, why was this shot on film, instead of video? It certainly wasn't due to the variety of sets (four, maybe five) or for any special cinematography. I could be wrong, but is it possible that this film sat on the producer's shelf for a while (perhaps titled "Gagme and Layme") and was finally dusted off, retitled and put out in a hurry? If so, fellas, there was no reason to rush!
