Not Bad but Just Boring
The Devil in Miss Jones (2005)
** (out of 4)
Do we really need a plot description other than this is a remake of the 1972 classic, which helped make the porn genre what it is today? This is a very loose remake to say the least so if you're expecting anything scene-for-scene then you're going to be disappointed because we basically just get the title, a few small connections and a cameo. Outside of those things this here is pretty much on its own and I must admit that I really wasn't all that impressed. The original film is certainly a legend in its own right but I wasn't overly fond of that one either but it's certainly much better than what we have here. Yes, the cinematography was good and they were actually trying to do a "real" movie here with "real" performances but clocking in at 109-minutes, this thing just drags way too much with one boring sex scene after another. Again, people are going to be watching his movie for a variety of reasons. Some are wanting a movie. Some are wanting to get off. Others might just be a fan of the genre. Either way, the sex scenes really weren't anything we haven't seen countless times before and I must admit that I didn't find any of them erotic. Perhaps I'm just an old fashioned person where I prefer that not everyone look like Ken and Barbie models? Either way, both Savanna Samson and Jenna Jameson are pretty enough as are the rest of the girls but their performances....not so much. The original film's Georgina Spelvin makes a cameo appearance, which is probably the best moment in the film. The story itself is a complete boring mess that rarely makes any sense but then again, this is a porno so perhaps we shouldn't have expected one.
