What happens when you put together a group of top-notch performers, a seasoned director, a sexy script and a decent budget? You get one hell of a good, hot, authentic-sounding period piece like Bonnie and Clyde. All the actors are thoroughly immersed in their roles, and no-one ever breaks character. It's a sight to behold.
It's a simple story: Bonne and Clyde (Ashlyn Gere, Randy West) are on the run from their last bank job, but get sidetracked in a small town (which I think also served as the country setting in The Phoenix), whose only inhabitants are Zeke and his lover Cissy (Derrick Lane, Racquel Darrian), Simon the "mute" handyman (T.T. Boy) and Thelma the local hooker (Alex Jordan).
Along the way, you'll see the best collection of sex scenes it has been my pleasure to watch in a long, long time. They start with Ashlyn and Randy's roadside rest-stop, where Ashlyn's fear of being too near the road only adds to her enjoyment of being taken from behind by studly Mr. West. The scene finishes with Ashlyn getting off on their (period) Studebaker's hood ornament while encouraging Randy to jack off for her. Next comes a beautiful solo, as Racquel decides to cool off down by the lake, and almost absent-mindedly strips and gives herself a full body rub.
But the most volcanic encounter takes place at the gang's hideout, where Nick E. (as Clyde's brother Buck) practically throws his wife (Francesca) at Mickey Ray's girlfriend Nikki Dial. The girls put on a torrid show, with Francesca eating Nikki to ecstasy; then the guys join in for an orgy of caresses, blowjobs, more tongue-lapping, some doggie-style and much, much more, finishing with nick giving Francesca a facial, as Nikki taking Mickey on a ride he'll never forget. We're talking award-nomination material here.
Meanwhile, Racquel and Derrick haven't been wasting any time. You'll love the casual way Derrick just lifts Racquel's dress and starts labia lapping while she's hanging out the wash. Of course, she soon forgets the chore and takes him in wholeheartedly, finishing in a cowgirl-style cumshot.
But what would a cops 'n' robbers picture be without the cops? Feds Jonathan Morgan and Tom Chapman turn up just as Randy and Derrick are fixing a car - but fortunately, town whore Alex Jordan is around to distract them both... for which she's paid a case of Nehi soda by Randy. Alex takes on both guys, front and back, ending with Jonathan giving her a facial as Tom butters her buns from behind.
The climax nears, as Racquel confesses to Ashlyn her secret dream of traveling - if only she were pretty enough (!). (Racquel? Not pretty? Right; and Emmett Smith can't make a touchdown.) Ashlyn lends her some "citified" clothes, applies a little makeup and voila - still the same beautiful Racquel! But of course this is only setting up the finale, where Ashlyn seduces Derrick in front of the fireplace, and Randy takes Racquel in the bedroom. Look for Ashlyn to gobble her partner's cream and look like she's begging for more.
Undoubtedly, Bonnie and Clyde will be one of Vivid's most popular tapes of the year, and everyone connected with the production deserves congratulations. If you've got a "best of the best" section, this tape belongs there. Incredible looking package design, as well.
