Later After Dark falls into an overcrowded category of recent sexvids: the good attempt that just misses. Jerry Butler turns in a nice performance as an angst-ridden bar owner whose life seems to be falling apart and who talks subjectively to the camera as a wraparound for the heavily edited story (a la Dangerous Stuff).
His wife leaves him after some great sex (the hottest scene in the feature with Nina Hartley) and his story parallels the life of an attractive, but unhappy hooker (Tracey Adams) who he eventually gets it on with on top of his bar.
However, the story gets muddled, going in circles but ending up nowhere. Tracy Adams, as nice looking and well-built as she is, has yet to generate enough heat during her sex scenes to make her a bona fide sex star. She's in most of the sex scenes here, but in one short erotic segment, Nina Hartley blows her right off the screen (excuse the pun).
Technically, the tape is fine. But it's a disappointment when someone tries to be creative and it doesn't quite work.
