Tunnel of Love is a strange feature; not strange in the way of a Dark Brothers Video, but strange due to a lack of focus. The sensual opening scene, featuring slow music and excellent graphics, appears to be aimed at the couples market. But the rest of the tape is a non-stop orgy which, considering the storyline, is too tame.
The rather thin plot centers on Tish Ambrose and her problem with men. This, isn't a normal problem (like refusing to do oral or anal sex, which she does rather well), in fact it's just the opposite. Men find her irresistible. So her best friend Krista Lane decides to take her away for an all-girl weekend at her boyfriend Steve Drake's ranch. But this doesn't help as Ambrose finds herself first with Steve Powers and then Randy West and Francois Papillon who show up for a party (I thought this was supposed to be just for girls?).
The orgy scene, which takes up most of the tape, goes on too long. And because director Katya F. tries to put emotions where none are needed, the sex seems mild at times. But, the outdoor scenes with Ambrose are raw and sexy, particularly a double penetration where she easily handles West and Papillon. Also, the bathroom water/whipped cream/bubble bath fight between Candie Evans and Paula Harlow is exciting and funny and by far the best sex scene in the tape.Tunnel of Love's
production qualities are good, especially with the outdoor scenes. The camera, when it is following moving people, occasionally falls a step behind but that doesn't hurt the scenes. And once in a while the background music, which for the most part compliments the action well, drowns out voices. But the dialog isn't important in this wall-to-waller that lacks intensity in spots.
