Critical Rating: AAA
Although it’s not quite up to par with the original Sexcapades, this sequel of sorts still has some things to recommend – namely colorful characters, glossy photography, a couple of torrid sex scenes and some witty banter. But best of all, Eric Edwards is back as top porn-director Harry Crocker.
The tale opens with Harry in bed with two sex-hungry girls. Handsome Harry and the two nymphs, Joanna Storm and newcomer Rene Summers, eventually wind up in a Jacuzzi together. Joanna starts the ball rolling by giving Harry head and he scores with her while Rene gets more and more aroused. Harry is soon ready for Rene while Joanna dives underwater to get a fish-eye view of the action. Next Joanna and Rene enjoy each other as Harry advances up the rear. Believe me, when all these shenanigans are over, you’ll be left breathless.
Anyway, Harry wants to shoot a new porn picture and he meets producer Louis Charger (R. Bolla) to discuss the project. Harry’s amazed to see Charger let his beautiful wife Gloria (Honey Wilder) audition with a new male stud Frank (Jerry Butler) right before their very eyes. As Charger puts it, “if he can screw my wife in front of me, then he’ll have no trouble performing on the set.” What a guy!
Harry’s leading lady turns out to be the biggest star in hardcore, Marilyn Camp (Kelly Nichols). He’s heard she’s nothing but trouble with an ego the size of an elephant. But as the filming progresses, Harry finds himself falling madly in love with her. In fact, he proves just how much during the final day of shooting.
Unfortunately, much of this film has a feeling of deja-vu with regards to the original. Even the music’s the same during the final scene. Yet, what saves the show are the talented performers. Eric Edwards is perfectly cast and Kelly has fun with her character. Nobody can play a producer like R. Bolla and Honey is hot stuff as his wife. Tanya Lawson is also on hand as a shy, attractive girl whose mother (Chelsea Blake) wants to put her in porn films.
Finally, if you don’t have any great expectations for Great Sexpectations, then you’ll probably find this a fun-filled sex film.
