Critical Rating: AAA
Ron Jeremy runs the 69th Precinct where Harriet Crotcher (Barbara Dare) is the self-admittedly "hottest" thing there or anywhere. When her and her dippy partner (Candie Evans) are assigned to bust open a drug-induced on-call call girl ring, Mother Tearasser (Cara Lott) and her goons soon see the inside of the police station… which isn't that bad!
Sound outrageous? Well, that's because Dirty Harriet is as funny as it is sexy. From pill-poppin' Capt. Jeremy, to Evans' air-headed vice bust, to the good guy/bad guy orgy, there's comedy everywhere. Maybe not "knee-slapping" humor, but the situations and dialogue are comical and keep a smile on your face.
What also keeps a smile on your face is the raunch. Cutie Evans is exciting to watch in her undercover operation with Randy West, and things really come to a head when Dare and Lott exchange blows over who is the hottest in the sack (or in this case, on the pool table). But the sex and the comedy really come together at the very end. When Evans mistakes the ring's sex drug for hair spray, the entire precinct gets down. And when Dare leads the whole call girl ring back to the stationhouse for arrest, the office becomes a maze of bodies. Now, we don't get to see this entire scene, but that's OK, because it's the situation itself that is funny and erotic.
Credit director C.C. Williams with a nice job behind the camera. Other than the outdoor driving shots, which are very bouncy, he gets all the action. And from several different angles. There is also a lot of "Miami Vice"-type music and a sleek black car that really give the feature a feeling of quality. Lott and Dare play their parts to the hilt, and Jeremy is at his comical best. All in all, this is an entertaining shot-on-video feature.
