Anthony Spinelli's have become a genre unto themselves - sexual psycho-dramas that capture a slice of life and hold your attention until the realistic conclusion. Franky And Joannie follows the formula, with four mostly stunning sex scenes that punctuate the script, which has enough Spinelli-isms to keep his legion of fans satisfied.
Lonely Jon Dough, madly in love with bartender Nina Hartley, pursues her until the happy conclusion has him stealing her away from her abusive relationship with Buck Adams. Nina and Dough's ending sex scene is raw and sultry, as is the four-way with Dough, T.T. Boy, lovely Stacey Nichols and cute newcomer Alyssa Jarreau. Jarreau also engages in a warm slurpfest with Diedre Holland, who appears on the box cover, but performs in only one scene.
Spinelli's crisp direction keeps the show's erotic pace moving. The only drawback is the video duplication quality of the two cassettes we looked at; with only average quality and too many drop-outs. Nonetheless, an erotic outing worth stocking.
