Tiresome fake "performance" film
It would seem to be relatively easy to do "canned" versions of live sex shows and present them as feature films, perhaps a way to cut corners and save a buck. But this shot-on-film presentation is merely a fake, staged to appear like a live performance, and its content is hit or miss.
Ron Jeremy does his very familiar emcee shtick to host the show, and burlesque acts come out and perform with explicit XXX content. In a way this resembles those '50s burlesque films with their succession of strippers and tired comedy routines. However, the hardcore sex changes everything and proves to be an end in itself, overwhelming the classic vaudeville/burlesque concept. The whole notion of risqué and the humor involved tends to evaporate if there is no restriction -it's difficult to be naughty when you're just whomping away in full-gonzo mode.
Skits are not very amusing: Honey Wilder as a teacher suffering through bad puns; George Payne humping the usherette (who escorts patrons to their seats) in the bathroom; Bobby Astyr in a doctor sketch featuring a tall trannie; Southern gal Dixie Dew doing blue comedy, stripping and masturbating; foxy boxing resulting in lesbian sex and a threesome with the referee; a prison sketch with Ron humping Sharon Kane.
At best a time capsule, though practically any Golden Age storyline feature would be preferable.
