Riff on TV hit, surprisingly played straight
Pointing up the misnomer of the category of "Porn-Parody", Jim Enright's take on the hit cop series of yore, with the title altered to suggest double-penetration action, is not parody or an attempt to be funny, but plays as a straight police procedural.

The most noteworthy aspect is use (actually overuse) of a hand-held camera technique, which in dialog scenes has whip-pans back and forth among the speaks rather than any reverse-shot cutting. This is extremely distracting and presumably an attempt to simulate the dynamic action of the TV original, though I couldn't remember that gimmick from decades back and haven't seen the series recently.

Because Enright teamed up with Jonathan Morgan on big hit comedies during this period (e.g., "Haunted Nights") also for Wicked Pictures, it is surprising that levity is omitted here. Instead we have dramatic scenes and show-downs, especially between our cops and attorney Dominique Simone, briefly powerful in an acting scene, unusual for the statuesque Black superstar of the VHS era. Police corruption is a key element of the story, and fits well into the frequent XXX time out for sex format that makes it a Wicked picture.

Title d.p. action is saved for the final reel, when cops T.T. Boy and partner Tom Byron team up to do the honors with Chelsea Blue, perhaps the least alluring member of the femme cast. Tabitha and star Kaitlyn Ashley, alongside Dominique, provide more conventional stimulation along the way.

Enright is effective as the demanding police captain and crew member Reo D'Genero also pops up (and received screen credit) in another NonSex speaking role.
