Critical Rating: AAA
A takeoff on The Big Chill, this F.J. Lincoln sexvid definitely works, if for no other reason than the sex is excellent and non-stop. High marks also go to the cinematography; filmed soap opera-style, whereby the action cuts from room to room, the video quality is first rate and doesn't miss a thing. Lincoln's last quality video feature was Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll.
Coming together to mourn the sudden death of an old college chum (you should see the way he goes!), the amply-endowed cast energetically performs a full spectrum of delights, ranging from black on white to a hot lesbian scene in which Patti Petite particularly stands out in some good old-fashioned loving. The grieving widow, ably played by Danielle, also turns in a strong performance.
Although the plot tends to get lost in all of the action, the script isn't bad and does manage to fire off some good one-liners. The relationship between old friends is also somewhat explored, no pun intended. But It's the sex in all its close-up glory that really makes The Thrill of It work. Definitely worth a look-see.
