One of the great erotic flicks of the 1990's...The Other Woman
From the previous comment: "then one will be alright with it." Having all that is said,I don't think I would ever deluded myself into thinking this was anything but a erotic thriller. But when this made-to-video flick came out in 1992,"The Other Woman" is regarded as one of the greatest erotica thrillers to ever come out of the 1990's. This is director Jag Mundhra's best work and he takes erotica to new heights never before mentioned here. It is one of the great "soft-porn" flicks to ever grace the 1990's,and it has a very interesting plot about a journalist(Lee Ann Beaman) who not only uncovers something big against the mob,but also finds some startling information about her husband's lover. Not only that it has put a strain on her marriage,but she also has some skeletons in her closet that brings a dark secret on her past. She also finds out that the other woman(Jenna Persaud,a former Penthouse model of Middle Eastern decent brought a splash of color to its magazines during the 1980's and 1990's makes her debut here as a actress)is having not only an affair with her husband,but also she has a sexual attraction to her(which in turns reveals the dark secret to her lesbian past). What results here is some of the greatest erotica ever filmed where as it succeeds where others failed.
The question is to why this gem of a movie is not available on DVD is a crying shame. When it was released straight to video in 1992,there were two versions to this movie that are floating around and its only available on VHS,which with Beta and the Laserdisc are the age of the dinosaur. The "R" rated or "cable" version has several scenes that are deleted. It is best to get the "Unrated" version of this movie which has some great scenes. In the "Unrated" version,there are two,count them,two juicy lesbian sex scenes in this movie. The first one,where it has Lee Ann Beaman's character going back to her dark past and looking into the photos of her mother,and the scene of where she finds her mother and her female friend,making out in the bedroom. The other scene is where Lee Ann Beaman and her co-star Jenna Persaud really get it on is one if not the steamiest hottest lesbian sex scenes ever filmed is only in the "Unrated" version. Where as the "R" rated version has a running time of 90 minutes,the "Unrated" version is the better deal and has more erotic scenes has a running time of 103 minutes.
For the record: When is "The Other Woman" coming to DVD? A lot of fans would love to know. And for fans? Whatever happened to Lee Ann Beaman?
