Of the 5,000 or so adult features I've seen 18 Candles has the unique distinction of having no opening or closing credits, no cast or crew listings, no title, no video company logo, not even a "the end", Is there a message here? The wafer-thin plot, has Birthday girl Barbie Dahl laid up with a broken ankle being cheered up by friends. For the next hour we get various couplings with no rhyme o reason and two words of dialog – "oh yeah!" Besides saving on credits and a script, we've also saved on a continuity person, since names change from a drop of a hat. But if truth be told, all the ladies really throw themselves into sexual action with Bella Donna taking top honors. For that we must be grateful.
