Critical Rating: AAA
Well, strictly speaking, she doesn't do all her sisters. But don't let that (or the all-girl overtones of the title) dissuade you; Hannah is a joy to watch and one of the better-made adult videos of the year.
The Mott family has come together to mourn the passing of a beloved family member, Hannah's dog Muffy, who came "to an untimely end, under the wheels of a Briggs and Stratton lawnmower." Luckily (for us) the gathered aren't too bereaved to ignore each other for too long. Barbara Dare, as Hannah, gets some "divine comfort" from reverend Peter North, while hubby Tony Martino comforts her sisters, and maid Sharon Mitchell cures drunken family doctor Randy West.
Maybe I'm a pushover for comedy relief, but West nearly steals the film with his inebriated medico, a character who does seem to have a remedy for grief that the women want. Barbara Dare shines in the title role, portraying a naiveté that contrasts nicely with her fiery couplings, while co-stars Blake, Horne and Dixon make the most of their supporting roles. There's a fine on-screen sexual chemistry between the cast members here.
Technically, director C.C. Williams continues to delve into the "video bag of tricks" he started using in the similarly well-done Dirty Harriet, effectively using slow-motion and cross-cutting to add variety to the scenes. If there are any drawbacks here, it would have to be an overabundance of Obligatory Lesbian Scenes. That, however, may be what the filmmakers wanted (it seems that way from the title), and there's enough straight couplings to satisfy most. Hannah Does Her Sisters is a funny "family frolic" that will delight aficionados of "sisterly love."
