Funny couples fare.


François Clousot's Director's Cut, about the trials and tribulations of being

a director – a French one, at that – of XXX features, will undoubtedly lead

the viewer to at least a couple of conclusions:

1) Jean-Luc Goddard (the former Steven St. Croix) should in the future

refrain from trying a French accent. (Anthony Crane, on the other hand, may

continue to use his.)

2) Director Clousot might consider, if he decides to do another self-parody,

getting someone else to write it. He's obviously too close to the situation.

Which isn't to say that some of the situations don't ring true. Performers

arriving late. Performers who don't want to do dialogue. Performers who get

sick while on set. Performers showing up on set saying, "I've got to be out

by 2. I've got another shoot." Fire marshals (or, in this case, a "permit

inspector") checking out the set's safety, then staying to watch the action –

or in the case of Ryan Conner, participating in it. Conner's girl/girl with

Briana Banks is eminently watchable.

On the other hand, Crane most definitely underplays ubiquitous real

French stills photog Laurent Sky; just ask anyone who's actually been on one

of Sky's sets. And we don't know any director who's actually calmed down a

lead actress (Julie Meadows) by fucking her. And as for what a director

might do with his producer (Banks) after a long day of shooting, we don't

even want to know... but viewers might. (Its high points are a hot reverse

cowgirl and mish.)

All that aside, Director's Cut is an amusing and occasionally steamy piece

of work. Evan Stone pile-driving Banks is okay, but make-up gal Stevie

seducing stagehand Steve Hatcher is a real temperature- (and cock-) raiser:

terrific reverse cowgirl, with a pop from spoon position that reaches all the

way up to the pretty brunette's neck.

Likewise, both Goddard's mish and doggie with Meadows, and Aurora

Snow's moans during the doggie and cowgirl with Crane are well worth

watching, but the one to really look out for is Dee spooning Chris Cannon

after camping on his peg.

There aren't enough decent comedies in adult, but Director's Cut can be

added to the list.
