It would be playing a little fast and loose with the literal meaning of this title to suggest that the same babes you see flipping their halters and flashing tit in the French Quarter during Mardi Gras are the "girls" featured in this tape. And, in a way, thank goodness, no. The selection of womanhood on view in this tape, quite frankly, is more of the Hollywood variety.

Studio and lush, outdoor locations account for the bulk of this vid's running time, and professional models such as Lene Hefner, the ubiquitous Lisa Comshaw, Stephanie Rage and Kelly (O'Dell) Mauz account for the rest. Standard-issue Mardi Gras exteriors do add a serviceable framing device to this show, but aren't exactly relevant, all things considered. The way in which the glamor shots are resourcefully mixed into this showcase could just as well connect stock footage of Bob Vila fixing a toilet and titling the results, The Girls of This Old House.

Whatever the title, the models' performances are brisk, polished and professional, and the onscreen elocution has a kind of derivatively zippy, music-videoesque collision of images. Playboy gloss about it. Keep in mind, though, this is a shot-on-video production—a comment meant not to min-imalize but emphasize just how articulately clever video photography has become.

Lene Hefner's stint is quite classy and appealing, especially in moments (a technique long past the split-screen effect) where she's seen lensing herself with a vidcam. She looks fabulous, and this tape should acquire for her a whole new legion of fans on the alternative adult side. Other T&A featurettes possess a similar ring to the Lene stint, and involve bikini posing, skinny dipping and fashion modeling. Take special note of a skit featuring Kelly O'Dell performing in a nifty, faux silent film-style encounter with another gal that runs the gamut from showering to cake baking.

This is certainly one tape that should grace the shelves of your alternative section, particularly with the celebrated presence of such adult film personalities as Hefner, Rage and O'Dell. Also stars Joanne Vancio, Pam Colburn and Heather Tuscany.
